Anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with the nausea from Chantix?

Posted 27 Aug 2017 by Banks1988 1 answer

I've used Chantix and quit before, but got off them probably sooner than I should have due to the morning nausea. I'm fine with the evening pill but the morning one makes me nauseous for a good hour. This is hard to deal with at work.
