Apparently cancer and chemo can make you feel like that too.
I am currently on them and have had some nausea and headaches although now wearing off after 3rd week but cannot rate it highly enough, I haven't smoked for two weeks which in itself is a miracle as I was truly addicted but also, I DONT want to smoke anymore and have had no cravings or anxiety, Just very quietly stopped!!!
I figured the sickness and headache (which went with paracetamol) was worth enduring to quit because as the smoking related diseases are going to be much worse than that.

“Works for me”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by Rob-117 (1 review written)

I'm 28, been smoking for 11 years. I tried everything to quit, patches, gum, electronic smokes, Allen Carr's book and Max Kirsten's hypotherapy. None of it helped me at all. I was skeptical but tried champix when I spoke to a friend of a friend who swore by it. The first week made me feel no different apart from having some surreal dreams. By the second week I was starting to feel ill whenever I smoked and went from 20 a day to 10 a day. Around day 10 I was only smoking 4 or 5 a day which… Read Full Review

“Day 12-- Stopped Smoking Day 8-- But Having Side-Effects”

Written on: 19/07/2014 by RaidenCurran (1 review written)

I have smoked for 44 years, and never tried to stop. I can afford to smoke, but the drawbacks to smoking are immense. Apart from the obvious health damage, smoking is so inconvenient. You have to spend half of your time searching out places where you are allowed to smoke, and these are often tatty shelters strewn with dog-ends. The turning point for me was a recent holiday, a short cruise, only 6 nights. My main concern was not the places we were to visit, or life on board, but where could I… Read Full Review

“Almost there!”

Written on: 24/06/2014 by CarolJayne (1 review written)

I am on Day 15 of taking Champix. I have smoked for 42yrs with the exception of 8 mos approx 10 years ago when I quit cold turkey. I am at the point now where I am smoking only out of habit as I really don't need a cigarette and can't have more than 3 puffs at a time without feeling nauseous. So it's only a matter of getting my head on board with my body now and I will be done smoking forever! I found the first week on the champix the worst for me as I went through all my physical withdrawal… Read Full Review

“The worse drug ever”

Written on: 18/06/2014 by Warnolye (1 review written)

I understand that people want to quit smoking and need some extra help. My husband was one of them and decided to use champix. The side effects were horrible and it almost killed him. His mood deteriorated and depression became the norm. Towards the end I had to stay home cause I was afraid he'd commit suicide. He never once thought it may have been the medication, but I begged for him to call the pharmacist. Once he did they informed him it was the medication and that his DR should never… Read Full Review

“Set yourself free”

Written on: 16/06/2014 by ryCullen413 (1 review written)

Week 10 now. Not smoked since day 8. Smoker for 40 yrs, 10 years ago stopped for 2 yrs, was desperate to stop again. Can't believe how easy it has been since end of week 2. Only side effects were headaches and stomach ache if took the champix without food. Took the nurse's advice to take evening dose with my tea as I usually eat early (5pm) and have not experienced any nightmares. My sleep has actually improved and sleepless nights are now very rare. I read lots of forums in the first weeks to… Read Full Review

Little or no will power then you need Champix. Has anyone else lost interest in other things as well? I use to love coffee now it's meh so is steak. I am on week 11.

“Helped me stop smoking”

Written on: 10/06/2014 by McClurekl252 (1 review written)

I would recommend this to anyone wanting to quit smoking. Had a few side effects ie. dizziness, headaches, nauseous but they don't last for long. Only slight problem is I've started to get the giggles & the only think I can think of is it is the Champix. Thank you Champix. I smoked at least 20 cigs for 25 years and I stopped smoking 2 weeks ago and I will never go back to that disgusting habit… Read Full Review

“Happy to be a non smoke”

Written on: 09/06/2014 by EsmereldaLoots (1 review written)

I started using champix 11days ago. I didn’t read the side effects because I heard real bad things about it from people who didn’t even use it. I made the mistake of smoking and taking a tablet or taking a tablet and then smoking. that caused severe nausea. After two days i realised it and took the tablets an hour before or after smoking. My husband read something about being able to quit between day 8 and fourteen and i though it was ridiculous. But from day 5 I started smoking less… Read Full Review

“side effects terrible”

Written on: 09/06/2014

My spouse has smoked for over 40 years and recently decided to try Champix. The first week was ok, but then the side effects of the medication kicked in. He suffered from horrible gas (rectally), had terrible dizziness and nausea, and started to experience nightmares. These side effects were 24/7, with no relief. By the end of the first month of use, the symptoms were so severe and debilitating, we both agreed that he should stop the Champix. We would not recommend Champix to anyone… Read Full Review

“Almost there......”

Written on: 09/06/2014 by CruzBowman (1 review written)

After enjoying my cigs for 39 yrs, I am very proud to say I am done with smoking. I am on week 5 of champix and I will call it the 'miracle' pill if you can stand a few weeks of uncomfortable side affects. I also suffered with nausea, heartburn and lack of solid sleep. Considering that I may not be suffering from yearly bouts of bronchitis.....I will stick with the champix. My husband who also smokes is on his very first week of the pills. He has had no side effects as of yet.I highly recommend… Read Full Review

smoked a pack a day for 45 years.tried champix and couldn't believe how easy and successful it was.that was 5 years ago.i suggest you try champix first before you read a lot of reviews just so you don't have any unfounded worries before starting.if you experience any negative side affects check with your doctor and read reviews to see if others have had same side affects.i myself didn't have any negative affects but everyone is different.so give it a try because life without cigarettes is very… Read Full Review

“Best thing I have ever done!”

Written on: 29/05/2014

I smoked since I was 14 years old, managed to stop for a couple of times, only a month or two at a time but after 26 years smoking I started thinking. It wasn't the health issues that worried me, no, it was the amount of money going up in smoke. I heard about champix at work with very mixed reviews. I eventually picked up the phone and rung my GP. 3 days later I was on champix. Having read the the notes it scared the hell out of me, but I thought, give it a go and see what happens. I was a 20… Read Full Review
