... Hi RC, I suffered with the constipation, gas and nausea while on the Chantix. I took milk of magnasia on 3 occasions (full dose). LOTS of bran, like shredded wheat twice a day, green leafy veggies and metamucil every morning. I even got some prunes and ate 4 or 5 each day. Even with all of that, it was still difficult for me at times. Hope this helps. Congratulations on... (3 replies)

... Aloha Memaw! Actually, I'm not on Chantix. I started with Wellbutrin/Zyban and stopped taking the medication about 5 days after taking it. Wellbutrin/Zyban made me too anxious (I'm already an anxious person). It did help me not wanting to smoke. Right now it's been 12 days of smoke free...yippee! I have my cravings here and there. The craving come and go. There are... (36 replies)

... phases of a quit. My insomnia lasted a few months after going cold turkey. One thing you can do is to watch the caffeine. Quitting nicotine is said to double the effects of caffeine so try to cut your intake by at least half. There are other simple steps to take to help sleep like using herbal teas and warm baths before bedtime. ... (2 replies)
