Re: chantix

I am having that memory loss thing BADLY...I have cut my dosage in half. I am on my 4th week of Chantix. Instead of taking 2 blue pills I only take one. Beginning next week I plan on going to 1/2 pill per day.

Hi good luck I hope your memory loss gets better! I'm so proud to be smoke free,but worry about side effects! I should have worried about the effects of smoking way back when!! I have smoked for almost 15 years. I wish you all the luck I know its not easy. Im 33 and started smoking when I was 14 if I can quit I know you can. Also I called the doc. I cant get in for a couple of weeks;< If you can see or call your doc about it..GOOD LUCK!!! we all need encouragement! keep up the good work
