Yeah, that’s right Dave – all the problems being reported all over the world are caused by people not following the instructions properly and not really wanting to quit. You don’t have to Keith. The French Health Minister wasn’t having that, and stopped funding Champix immediately. If he is really trying to make a valid point, and be taken seriously, is this the kind of behavior you would expect? Though i doubt it will help me in court:(, Started using champix 15 days ago and i have been cigarette free for 5 days. hi im 28, smoking for 13 years and have tried everything to quit,hypnosis,patches,allen carr method,cold turkey, have failed each time, just got a prescription for champix today,gonna start them tomorrow,will keep u posted,i hope im one of the lucky ones .

How about posting some success stories? 1) Paul McKenna is a TV personality and a stage hypnotist. By the way, I am astounded to read that some folks are taking it for months. So far, apart from nausea, I am feeling fine. Well, thank you for the prompt sales pitch. Not everybody is affected, Annette. It was one minute fine and then the next dead. Have an appointment tomorrow with the nurse where I’m going to ask. If I overhear a stranger in the street, I advise they read the list of side effects closely, and decide if they could potentially live with diabetes going forward. Hi Chris, No CAMPAIGNING against it. No more nasty chemicals for me. Not only that, you’ll never be able to remove it, which might prove a bit embarrassing since the mad rant you have quoted there is NOT from any website of mine! She also stated several times that if I have any depressive thoughts to stop the champix immediately. Hi Bill, good luck! I got prescribed Champix and had a follow up appointment with the nurse, got weighed and had a little chat. aaggh! Hi Finnian, thanks for joining the debate.

They don’t know at that point that around 85% of Champix users will be smoking again at the one year follow-up. Little message to Dave: I have removed your former posts because you continued to send abusive messages after I warned you to stop. I can’t give yourself or Sandra concrete reassurances either on the pace or extent of recovery. My long term boyfriend left me tonight and said I’ve never been the p.s. around 5 yrs ago I was casually prescribed Champix by trainee GP. If you search the Champix/Chantix blog section you will see that over the last three years I have written many posts on Champix which have drawn hundreds of comments overall. The key phrase that comes up again and again – and points very clearly at Champix – is “OUT OF CHARACTER”. Anyone sending in abusive messages will not see them posted on the site. Protect others! I have tried hypnotherapy in the past by the way & it didn’t work for me, but again I’m happy for those it does work for. and all those drug ‘approval’ bodies seem to be totally ineffective at controlling the drug industry. I was one of the 4% with serious skin effects. Just don’t pay anything over £200, unless they’re in Harley Street. Half the 44% of smokers in the drug trials who had stopped at 12 weeks had started again by 28 weeks. I thought this site was set up by a competitor source to defame the product…. After smoking for 23 years, I’m just desperate for a way out.

It was never trialed for alcohol or drug therapy either, but there have already been suggestions coming up on the internet that it “may be” applicable for those issues too, and quite where these rumours originate is anybody’s guess. As for a balanced view: all comments that come in here are published, just as yours was. Around Easter time he developed odema in his legs and his face and his potasium My tongue felt swollen and I had a rash on certain parts of my body but mainly on my head and neck. I am doing calcium bentonite clay baths three times a week and also taking it internally twice a day until this champix is out of my system and my pain is gone completely. See my book for full details: it’s called “Nicotine: The Drug That Never Was”. I only experienced them for two weeks. So – as you are still on the medication – it is simply to early to say what your long-term outcome will be. Depression is gone, hostility and rage is gone. Blame the victims? Trust me, when Tom was really bad, he’d have preferred a smokers disease than the mental torment he endured, and I think I would too. It was revealed to me that he had an enlarged heart and an irregular heartbeat. Your all the same lying scam artists.. Click on that, then scroll down to the article by a leading British psychiatrist on why he doesn’t trust the latest Wonder Drugs – of which Champix is one. Had a massive headache today, no proof its to do with champix though. It is a medical no-brainer, Doc. (death is listed as a possible side effect although it is highly unlikely), And let’s not forget number 4 – CHRIS you are an absolute nut job that believes almost any conspiracy theory put forward by teenagers off their basement computers. I’m now on my 7th Day and tomorrow start the 1mg twice a day. I have. Cynical, corrupt, ruthless, murderous. Now been to three doctors, X-ray session, one ENT specialist, one dentist and five physio sessions – still they are baffled and admit to “never seeing this before”. No, that usually what someone does before they try to sell some poor smoker Champix. If you don’t believe ME (because I’m a hypnotherapist, presumably) then do more research, read around everywhere, but don’t believe the hype. I am doing this to warn and protect people. I wish I had taken more notice of the side effects and researched champix use with alcohol. Incredible that governments all over the world ignore hypnotherapy – which is risk-free, and works far better than any medication – and instead use public money to fund this global Champix Experiment just because it keeps the drug companies happy. They should be prosecuted and the drug withdrawn immediately. Needless to say, I’m not going to bother. but forgive me if i am not sympathetic to the handful of people who take this drug and die even after the doctor has explained to them the long list of side effects. I’ve had no cravings. Damn you Champiiiix! I agree with Jordan on this one. Google it: Champix reviews. Which makes a nonsense of the standard advice to stop taking the drug if your personality starts changing – they don’t know it is! Comes in waves now but decreased. i have decided not to go down the path with champix, but sticking with the good old patches and stuff at least i feel better with no side effect what so ever apart from to much energy everyday which is great! I suggest you read the other comments on the site: you will see I am NOT “trying to scare people”, I’m trying to warn them because their prescriber has certainly not told them the whole story and in fact probably doesn’t even KNOW the whole story. I think each to there own, everybody is different, read your leaflet on sideffects, if you think it is harming you just stop taking them, and talk to your docter. Cravings are NOT withdrawal symptoms, as the book explains; but of course you won’t read it, will you? Hypnotherapy and acupuncture didn’t work, nicotine patches gave heart palpitations, and nicotine gum and lozenges gave me mouth ulcers. I am terrified he will leave me, or killl someone, or himself. which means they are either picked up or not by receptors in the brain. Hi Chris, I am on my 7th day of taking Champix and already I am starting to experience extreme nausea, tiredness, headaches, lightheaded-ness, increased anger and the feeling as though my skin has been dipped in diluted menthol and placed infront of a fan. Do you have any suggestions……? banned. My partner took a course of Champix 8 months ago which proved very successful and he was over the moon about being able to kick the habit. We are thinking of setting up a web site for survivors of smoking sessation drugs to have a voice for the sufferers and let everyone know they are not alone and that it is real. Why is the health services keeping such a tight lid on what is obviously a lethal drug?”. So my doctor suggested Champix. I up the dose tomorrow. Even if it was a mistake, it was appalling negligence which has lead to further deaths. Zyban kind of worked (I managed to quit for 6 months) but I became completely disconnected from the world whilst on it. Re: Rachel post #140 Augst 20th 2012, please go back and read my original post #83 21st December 2011. If people access it from the right avenues and have the right support around them they would know not to keep taking it after the terrible side effects. That’s basically corruption: power and money twisting everything, and people are dying as a result – and if you had died on this drug, my friend, I’m sure your loved ones would be 100% in support of the Truth Will Out Campaign. I was taken to hospital but was told that because I hadn’t actually harmed myself that there was nothing they could do for me; so they took my blood pressure and sent me packing. IT IS NOT a withdrawal from nicotine. Totally psycotic. Jordan, using Champix for 2 months has apparently resulted in the creation of an alter ego of the opposite sex – but at least you are getting on well at the moment. Due to my career and current attempt to change career I am not able to follow this up with my GP. “So where do I go from here, I dont know, the doctors dont know either, I’ve used all my savings just to live the last couple of years and I cant function day to day, legal action would be futile and I cant fund it, so all I can do is sit and stare out the window and watch the world go by, happy days ”. I have tried to give up many times before with patches, chewing gum, accupunture and nothing has seemed to work for me so far. My goodness, what a cosmic Tale. I got scared after the blackouts related to as few as 3 beers and quit Chantix. Hey there. Do you know of any good hypnotherapists in Montreal, Quebec? I make no money from either of those. and he went in a further twice for the same problem and subsequently died on Your government loves you little sheep and is planning new inoculations and poisoned foods for your enjoyment, safety and ultimate demise. Despite providing evidence in court of the side effects no dispensation was given. i might also add that for you to say that nicotine is not addictive is utterly ridiculous. That’s why I wrote the book. Chris does not like opinions or comments which contradict his own views, and he has even resorted to bullying tactics. It’s not good, it’s not fun, and it’s bloody criminal that they can get away with screwing people over like this. Its been several months now since I stopped taking the drug but still feel depressed and I am experiencing very black moods which is not usual for me. This was just the last straw for me as I want to stop smoking Cigar’s desperately. I will never take this medicine again. She said: 'I wanted to get it … I respect your opinions, your profession and your beliefs but when it comes to treatment for the physical or mental the pharmaceutical approach will always win..wether it works or not will win. Neither do the FDA, the MHRA or the bloody British Medical Association, or they’d have stopped it by now. I don’t over analyze these things, i just got on with it.. i’ve now gone 6 days without a cigarette – to me thats like climbing 6 mountains. From reading your message – which positively drips with anger and negativity – I think I know why. If ‘Ben’ starts getting nasty, though, stop taking this mind-bending drug immediately. This is a killer drug that would never have been passed anyway if Pfizer hadn’t ‘lost’ hundreds of bad reaction reports by ‘accidentally’ submitting them through the wrong channels to the FDA. Do you think ANYONE would? Hi Chris….just want to say thanks for your site, I was on the verge of taking this medication only last week ( been to smoking cessation and have letter in hand to take to the docs ) The chemist did warn me about possible side effects for people who have suffered with depression, so I thought I would take the chance with them…….until I read your site! You don’t have to read any of this, and neither does anyone else. At least you’ve been warned, it’s your call. No, 86% failure rate for Champix Chantix, My original post on Champix Chantix April 2008, and almost 300 comments that followed. I think Champix should be banned because it is so wildly unpredictable, but even if it isn’t, it should be regarded as an absolute last resort. That doesn’t mean it is not suitable for other people!! I have yet to meet anyone in “real life” who failed with it. I don’t trust any of that anymore, after what I’ve learned through all this. Virtually every working day of my life I help someone quit smoking without any of that, which is how I discovered it could not possibly be a drug addiction. how many lives are you saving with this page? well, made a bit of a dick of yourself, frankly. And that’s what the FDA did about that little “mistake” by Pfizer: nothing. And you have…. suffered. Like a family member died. Money is what it’s all about, April. Haven’t read your book. when you can get Champix for nothing on prescription. Chris, on August 4th, 2011 at 2:41 am Said: “Conspiring” against it? But because you are taking a drug, you are quick to blame it, instead of simple withdrawal. She ended up in a mental hospital. Do not take this drug. Specially that English is my second language . I had been taking champix for 4 weeks during this time i have had many side affects, crippling headache, blurred vision in 1 eye, weight loss (nearly 2 stone), but the worst was memory loss i believed i was going insane i couldn’t remember anything i couldn’t find anything not that it was lost i just didn’t recognise it bank cards phones etc i know it sounds crazy but thats how it was. He is gone and all of us suffer now. Most smokers save it back in less than a month. Right now I think I might be able to quit from just using the two week starter pack of the stuff. Again, not sure if its the drug or not….I definatley feel “weird” though…Will report any findings. I am lodging an Appeal and intend to get a forensic scientist to clarify and explain the effects that this ‘medication’ can have as I am so angry about the whole episode…..on the balance of probabilities this is no coincidence there has to have been a causal link. They murdered our son for profit. Petra seems to think she can guarantee everyone’s safety because she’s been on it for a month.

My GP said it was pyschological withdrawal, gave me a script for antibiotics and told me to carry on with the good work of not smoking! Am done with it, after just throwing up again tonight… the rest of these awful pills are going in the bin! My Mom is looking into the matter. You are currently taking Champix. Whether any of this is genuinely beneficial to the human race or not is irrellevant. It is not the nurse’s fault either – or any of the doctors involved – they’re just doing what they are told to do, and if they raise questions about the drug themselves, they run the risk of being regarded as a troublemaker or a potential whistleblower, and then they would be in fear of losing their job. BMA, NICE, MHRA, FDA… you are all responsible for this rogue drug ruining innocent people’s lives. a slight dip of depression I have just lost 2 very close relatives and my partner has been diagnosed with M.S at the age of 34 so if anyone should be suffering depression it would be me but no I seam fine with them .after reading the comments on this page I am reluctant to take them but I know if I don’t I will start smoking again so its a tough call which is the lessor of 2 evils ? I think for some people of properly subscribed this is a great drug for helping stop smoking- I have tried everything- nothing works aside from this so far.

He went into hospital and that was the start At one point I was close to a hypo episode which can lead to unconsciousness, coma and potentially death if not caught quickly enough. And I deffinitely agree with you Chris that cigerettes are not an addiction- they are a habit or as in my case a coping strategy. Pfizer’s very well-paid lawyers will always argue, of course, that a causal link is “not proven” but smokers only need to know the numbers – they can draw the conclusions for themselves.
