    Should I Worry?: Chantix Side Effect
    avatar
    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 have used Chantix and I think it also relaxes you so that you don't have the side effects of quitting.
