My husband was on Chantix for 2 months. He did quit smoking cigarettes but continued to smoke his pipe once in a while. He was also Euphoric while on this drug. One week after stopping the Chantix he lost his job. Made a bad decision, was noticed driving erractically. He was also taking Ambien at the same time. Anybody else have this problem?
Hi! I'm terribly sorry about your husband's situation. And as far as your question goes..I'm on day 3 of Chantix and haven't noticed any rashes, however, going over a lot of reviews on here, it seems alot of people had that problem, along with backaches, which I don't have. But, I am also taking ambien (thnks to insomnia!) and I don't have any kind of reaction from both. Does (did) your husband take Cantix & Ambien @ same time (at nite)? I take the Chantix in morning (think it goes up 2 morn & nite later and Ambien at night. However, I noticed if I stayup instead of going right to bed after taking th Ambien, I feel kinda weird and in a "happy zone", and I get really hungry and my taste buds are extremely hightened. I also have very little recolection of it later. What I do remember, I feel extremely stupid for how I acted or what I did or what I said. So, anyway, maybe the Ambien is still in his system for a long period. The experience I've had the last 3 days is fatique and laziness, and yesterday a little depressed. It came on gradually then full-on in Church and I had to leave due to the crying. I wish your husb luck and please wish me luck as well... I need it! Also, did your husb still smoke like normal the 1st week, or did the meds make him not wana smoke much? I can't seem to find an answer. I'm still smoking and scared at day 8 I'm gonnakeep wanting to. I dofind however, whn I smoke it's not quite the same. I can't quite explain it. But I just hope I taper off and quite!!! Sorry for rambling,but hey..I could be smoking right now!! LOL!
