I'm already on Effexor XR for depression so will this help me not to be so depressed on the Chantix?

Hello nanny Anna. It will help your depression (meaning the Effexor) Taking the Chantix will not take away from the Effexor. You should be fine. Regards pledge

It may or may not. Chantix can cause depression. I would just be aware that this can happen and do what you need to if it does occur.

As Pledge stated the Effexor will help the depression, the Chantix will not replace the effexor. Chantix like effexor has different effects on different people. I myself used Chantix 4 years ago and quit smoking, something that I do not regret doing. I had little side effects with the Chantix as compared to some of my friends who tried it and failed. I had many of the side effects of Effexor so there you go. It just kind of depends on your body chemistry. Best of luck to you, I hope you can quit smoking, it is a good habit to loose.

It will probably help your depression! Are you taking the chantix to quit smoking? I am on Lexapro for depression and I have been on in for about 8 years now. About 3 years ago I went on chantix to help me quit smoking and I found that the two drugs together actually helped with my depression, especially while quitting smoking! I also had great success with the chantix!! I lost my craving for nicotine by the 6th day that I was on chantix! The day before my quit date! I had a half a pack if cigarettes left that night and I threw them away and haven't had the urge to smoke since! so if you are on Chantix to quit smoking, I really hope that you have the same success that I and others on here that I have talked to have had. It does help to accept the phone support and other suggestions that they give you to help you.
I wish you luck!!!
