The FDA takes responsibility these days for faulty, fraudulent pharma product. The FDA protects Pharma by deeming it FDA responsibility once it approves and licences said product. No one can now litigate a vaccine maker in any way. Pharma companies were being sued out of business because they were found at fault over and over for their faulty, fraudulent products. The FDA approved MERCK'S VOIXX that killed 88,000. Nice job FDA. If you thought safety studies and safety issues were an issue in the past, Pharma will do less with blanket protection. FDA approval means one thing only, that Pharma can use real patients for experimentation.

I've been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and PTSD, and I've been on champix for almost three weeks now (as well as taking 300mg Seroquel XR and 100mg Seroquel at night). In the first week, I became very hostile and irritable. I argued with anyone and everyone. But, I'd gone from smoking 20-25 cigarettes a day down to one or two a day - and even less in the second week. I officially quit on day 14. I experienced a lot of nausea in the first two weeks, but now I don't notice any side effects other than having the weirdest dreams and a slight touch of insomnia. A year ago, I tried quitting on champix and it worked well (aside from feeling hopelessly suicidal for the first week, which did not happen the second time round) until I broke up with my ex girlfriend and she refused to give me back my medication... so, I ended up smoking again.

All in all, once I got through the first two weeks, it's been smooth sailing for me... obviously, everyone's experience will be different, and I'm just here to share mine :)

My boyfriend of one year have been taking champix for 3 week now,and he is totally a different person now, angry moody , we are fighting all the time, he is a totally different person. He is supposed to stop taking champix after one week. I need to know when will he get back to normal.
I would like to tell you something of how I had quit smoking,
I used Nicorette Gum that allows you to actively control how much nicotine you use and when you use it.
I used Low Strength 2mg Gum: Since it is Suitable for those who smoke 20 cigarettes a day or less. And I use to smoke approx 12 cigarettes a day.
And so with the 12 Week Nicotine Replacement Plan of Nicorette I quit smoking. Today it;s been almost more than 6months and I don't get any cravings.https://www.nicorette .in/successful-quitting

Thanks and cheers to Nicorette for helping me and others like me.

Pinky

I tried using Champix to quit the habit earlier this year. After just two days, my partner begged me to stp taking them because I turned into a monster - even though I was still smoking. I haven't returned to my normal self since.
My moods are labile, often volatile, and I am now often agressive and challenging, even 6 months later.
Pfizer should be sued for releasing such a damaging drug, and so should the authorities that allowed it.
I have heard that some people have managed, and I would love to do the same to raise funds to set up some help for other sufferers - anyone with useful information to help with this is welcome to email me: robertbarrowcliff@hotmail.co.u k
