“Suidal Tendancies Caused By Champix...I've just...”

Written on: 14/04/2016 by Ayersbr421 (1 review written)

I give it 1 star based on the effect it had on my wellbeing and my personal experience with it. 5 stars based on the effect it had on my nicotine addiction. I would still recommend this to a friend but it would come with a sincere warning that should be taken seriously. I would tell them about my negative experience as i am you. First off, i do not believe in taking medication that alters the natural chemistry of the brain...which Champix does...it's how your perception (and it IS… Read Full Review

“Wouldn't have got this far without it!”

Written on: 31/03/2016

I wouldn't normally write a review on something, but I feel it is important to do so in this case. I have (or rather had) been a smoker for over 30+years and I know that without the help of Champix I'd still be smoking today. Yes, they gave me a few very odd dreams and yes, they did sometimes make me feel quite nauseous, but this would pass after 15 minutes and realistically, who cares if it's going to stop you from smoking! You do have to look after yourself in terms of drinking water and… Read Full Review

“Not easy as they say it is, even with Champix”

Written on: 14/02/2016

The hardest part of the day, is mid afternoons, if taken twice a day as prescribe, morning and night. By mid afternoon, craving is 100%, Champix, should think of the heavy smokers..and find a way, for them to take 2 one mg pills per day, and one 0.5mg mid day, to help heavy smokers quit for good. But then again, why would anyone care about my current problem. I did quit cigarettes, but I started smoking cigars mid afternoons, as Champix 1mg is not strong enough to last 14 hours, one taken at… Read Full Review

“I love Champix!”

Written on: 01/09/2015

If you want to give up, Champix is a no brainer. I was a hardcore 40 a day smoker since the age of 17 until 41. Tried other things like patches, lozenges, sprays and even Zyban. Always failed. Then I asked my GP for the FULL 3 month Champix course. Did not want just the first two weeks cos I lead a busy life and would never make it back to doctors for two week valuation and instead would start smoking again. Luckily my doctor did prescribe the whole 3 month course. After two months I felt… Read Full Review

“Works from day 1”

Written on: 28/08/2015 by Colby404 (1 review written)

Hi all, I took my 1st pill today and already I am feeling more relaxed. I am still smoking but I can feel a tiny change, the satisfaction from a ciggie is just not the same but I am still having cravings but not as much. I did not have one tonight because the tablet made me feel like I could not be bothered. What the tablet has done for me has decreased the anxiety out of the withdrawals so I do not get stressed out. I do realise this is the first day and once on the night tablets I may… Read Full Review

Hi , Please continue smoking as usual . You will automatically reduce it after about 30-40 days of taking champix. This is a wonderful tablet which worked on me as well . i have been smoking for past 25 years but with the help of champix i could manage to quit it . For me there was negligible side effects. if you want to call me.

That's I have been reading down through the reviews to look for someone who was somewhat handling champix the same as me. I have smoked to since I was a teenager & now in my later 50's so it's been more than 1/2 my life. I am on day 24 & have had 3-4 cigarettes a day & wondered if I could have enough will power to do a full day without one. I can manage the side effects from the champix & wonder now if some of my side effects are acturally from the withdraw from less cigarettes. I was around a pack a day & did find I was short of breath, lots of good reasons for quitting way more than reasons to continue to smoke. Hope I can finally say I am a nonsmoker soon & never in this lifetime want to take up this BAD HABIT again. If Chamoix can work for me I would be so happy!

“Wonder Drug”

Written on: 04/08/2015 by English453 (1 review written)

I starting smoking at 13, got to the age of 44 and started to worry about my health, but still enjoyed smoking. Started Champix and on day 8 was still enjoying smoking, then woke up on day 10 and couldn't light one and that was it-I had given up!!19 months on and I know I will never have one ever again. The smell and cost-I can't believe I smoked for 31 years! I had a few weird dreams, but no other side affects. It really was easy and the best thing I did. Thank you Champix… Read Full Review

“Fingers crossed these will work”

Written on: 11/07/2015 by fdReeves186 (1 review written)

I gave up smoking for 13yrs, started again 2 yrs ago when we opened a shop and when we were no busy I was bored so started smoking. My husband had continued to smoke through out my 13 yrs of giving it up so that made things difficult for me. About a month ago I had a very different angina attack to the ones I usually have, I now have to have another angiogram. After carefully considering things I decided to give up smoking. I asked my 80 a day husband if he will join me in trying Champix and he… Read Full Review

“Trying Champix for a second time”

Written on: 10/03/2015 by cduffy84 (1 review written)

I tried Champix about a year ago, got to two and a half weeks of being on it and lost all desire to smoke but I felt so ill from the tablets, once I stopped them at week 3 I found myself wanting to smoke again within a few days of stopping which I was really disappointed about. I should have done some research about the type of foods you should eat when taking the tablets to take away that awful sick feeling. I am on my second day of trying these tablets again with a fridge full of fruit and… Read Full Review

“Tried other ways to quit, this was best for me.”

Written on: 12/02/2015 by sparrow_64 (1 review written)

When I first started I had a reading of 22; quit smoking about day 6, that was 3 months ago and haven't smoked once. reading 1 .. 3, which I'm told is average for a non-smoker in this age of pollution. Had quite a few 'sickly turns' but it was worth it. My BP is also better at 130/80; for a 65yr old with angina that's good. Ok, not so much angina pains either. My colour is better the nurse told me. I don't have to scrub my fingers and tongue anymore. Overall a worthwhile experience and its not… Read Full Review

“worth a try”

Written on: 08/02/2015

I started champix on the 10th january and my stop day was the 22nd january. i have 2 eat before i take my pill due 2 nausea. I had 1 cigarette on the 30th january and it wasnt because i craved it because champix take all cravings away. I had it because i missed it and felt like i was missing out on having 1 and i can honestly say im glad i had it because it was the most vile thing ever! Ive not wanted 1 since. I couldnt get my head around how i used 2 have 20 of them a day. my mouth tasted like… Read Full Review

“Love/Hate”

Written on: 01/02/2015 by Gibbo28 (1 review written)

I've been smoking 15-20 cigarettes everyday for the past 10 years with no intentions or will power to stop. However, When it came to the point when I no longer wanted to smoke, I tried various methods; patches, gum, mouth spray etc; until I was given the option of Champix. I am currently on day 11 of Champix and I stopped smoking on day 9. The smell of a cigerette sickens me and I have absolutely no cravings what so ever. However; the side effects can come at a cost. I've experienced some very… Read Full Review

“warning! read side effects very carefully ”

Written on: 14/01/2015 by MacKinnonsu154 (1 review written)

Champix caused me nothing but severe depression, nausea, constant headaches, hallucinations, nightmares and two attempts at suicide. I did not have any other issues or problems in my life to cause me to have irratic behaviour like this. This is not a good way to quit smoking. I am not the only person who has experienced the same side effects. Please before you take these , source other options to quit smoking and do your research on champix and peoples experiences . Chapmix is not worth it… Read Full Review

“DAY 10 On Champix and 48 Hours Smoke Free!”

Written on: 27/12/2014 by HarperBenton154 (1 review written)

Hi, I have been a heavy smoker according to the NHS stop smoking clinic beep beep beep!!! Apparently i'm up there with bus drivers and my beeping on the carbon monoxide machine indicates I'm off the chart! I have smoked 20-25 daily for the past 15 years. I decided to quit when my 5 year old daughter said to me one day after picking her up from school "Daddy, I don't like you smoking, all my friends daddies don't smoke"..... the shame i know!!! To the point of Champix, went to stop smoking… Read Full Review
