I want to quit smoking & need help but want to make informed decisions. Here are my questions:
Can I wear a patch & also take a prescribed medication that assists with withdrawal?

I have been on Sertraline HCL 100 mg (generic Zoloft) for 20 years and was wondering if there is any interaction with this medication & Chantix?

I've heard mixed reviews on Chantix with mood changes, troubled sleep and nightmares. Is there another medication being prescribed without these side effects?
