I am a sufferer of severe migraines,but having them as regular as I am now on chantix isnt normal. I wonder if it is from lack of appetite. Since I have been taking chantix I have not been as hungry, my sleep is all messed up. Soemtimes I cant sleep and other times I cant get myself to get out of bed. Is this normal?
I am on wk2 of chantix,besides the wierd dreams and feeling nauseas does anyone get bad headaches?

My bad spelling must come from the foggy state of mind i am in. Is this too a common side affect?
Headaches are certainly part of the standard Chantix equation and nicotene withdrawal overall. I also experienced interrupted sleep as a result of the incredibly vivid dreams. I did not experience any appetite changes worthy of comment. The dream and sleep problems caused me to dispense with Chantrix at the end of week three and continue cold turkey. As of this morning, I have been nicotene free for a week.
