Should I Worry?: Chantix Side Effect
mismo posted:
I have been on Chantix for a month, and smoke free for three weeks. The only reported side effects I experienced were the dreams (which I truly enjoyed) and the nausea (which lasted about a week).

However, I have experienced an increase in self esteem. This makes me happy and fearful. The newly found boost is needed (I've become quite a push over in the last twenty years living with an alcoholic). I am worried that this new confidence may only be a precursor to one of the scary psychological side effects.

Has anyone else noticed an increase in self esteem just by quitting smoking, or should I be worried?

I to have used chantix to quit smoking and yes I had the dreams and new confidence but I think the confidence comes from u because u did it you quit and u should be proud of yourself nothing to be worried about
msrytw responded:
I have used Chantix and I think it also relaxes you so that you don't have the side effects of quitting.
