Champix (varenicline) for Smoking Cessation: “I have smoked a pack a day for over 20 years. After 10 days of Champix I smoked my last cigarette. I’ve been smoke-free for 3 days. You have to set a quit date with this drug. I still have moderate cravings but they pass quickly and the anxiety of not having any smokes is gone. I haven’t had any side effects with the medication.”

Champix (varenicline) for Smoking Cessation: “Smoker for 40 years and tried everything to stop over the last 10 years.Champix works really well and I had little in the way of the usual side effects and much reduced cravings.However, a couple of days after starting the 1mg dosage – about day 5 – I noticed that my vision was starting to be affected. My right eye in particular felt like I was looking through a cheap pair of kids sun glasses in that everything was darker and blurred. Contacted my doctor and he said to cut down or stop taking the drug. So far my eyes are still not working properly after 4 weeks.This side effect is very uncommon but it is one that people should be aware of.”

Champix (varenicline) for Smoking Cessation: “I am on my 11th day of taking Champix. I haven’t had a cigarette since day 4 of taking them. It’s like magic, I literally don’t even crave a cigarette and couldn’t think of anything worse. If people are smoking around me the smell makes me want to be sick. The last cigarette I had I literally had one drag and it made me feel like I had licked an ashtray it was disgusting. I know some people suffer from the possible side effects but I would highly recommend anyone thinking about taking them to definitely give it a go. If it isn’t for you just stop taking them.”
