I started my blue pill regimen this morning after I had given myself my usual shot of insuling. After about half an hour I started feeling weak and short of breath. It scared me and I tried to lay down but got agitated so I got up again. Then I re-read the instructions and it said I may have trouble if I am taking insulin (I take both pill and shot) and am on blood thinners. I am on both but my doctors know this. Should I give them a call again and should I quit?
I think I had a reaction this morning after starting Chantix?

Thanks...I talked to the Doctor and she suggested I call the pharmacist which I did this morning. He said I could cut the pills in half so I will try that. It may be a reaction to the insulin. Time will tell. I haven't entirely quit but hope to do so even with half a dose.
I would give them a call and let them know what happened. These can be side effects of Chantix but any time you have difficulty breathing it is not a good thing. Talk to the Dr that prescribed it to you. You might want to hold off in taking another until you get an ok from your doctor to start again.
