... My gas was so bad I finally called my GI doctor; he said the medicine probably goofed up my digestive balance and to take a probiotic (Align) for two weeks; if no better, then take digestive enzymes (and the probiotic did settle down my gas and bloating - but I'm also off the Chantix).
Good luck -- try the Align (can get it at any drug store or major store).
