Re: Chantix side effect: queasy stomach?
I had the nausea really bad. I called my doctor to see if I could reduce my dosage. He had me to get a pill splitter and cut the pills in half. Then take it 4 times a day...1/2 pill with breakfast, 1/2 pill with lunch, 1/2 pill with supper, 1/2 pill at bedtime. I was able to take the bedtime pill without any problems because I did not have the dreams or interrupted sleep as a lot of people have. With me taking the med. like that, I was able to cut the nausea in half. And it only lasted about an hour after I took the pill.
If that had not helped, I was going to stop taking the Chantix. As it was I completed the full 12 weeks course.
Make sure your hubby drinks a FULL glass of water and eats before taking the med. Someone on here said they took it while eating. They would eat about half their meal, take the pill and eat the rest of their meal. That worked for them.
Hope these suggestions help. If not, have him contact his doctor. He may have him reduce his dosage. That has helped a lot of people here with the side effects.
Tell hubby Congratulations on being smoke free for 2 whole weeks!! That is super.
Hope he feels better!!! Let us know how he is doing.
