Hallucinating taking chantix

I talked to a doctor today, when she saw my medication list, she asked if I was getting weekly follow ups with my dr and I'm not getting any from taking chantix but she insisted that you must, and said that will cause psychosis along with taking ambien and a muscle relaxant could be a dangerous combination. Now, she says the sleep abnormalty and the hallucinations are being caused by chantix and told me to call my pcp which I haven't done yet. But what's more dangerous, hallucinations or smoking 3 pks a day? Does it just cause psychosis while taking it or will it continue once you quit chantix (cause long term problems), if anyone knows, please let me know. It's been hard sometimes to disinguish the difference, but I know the things happening to me are not real, and my personality is pretty much fine right now, except when I was really sick a few days back and felt suicidal. I'm ok now. The chantix didn't cause that. My illness always gets me down like that on really bad days... So even if the dr ordered me to quit taking it, I believe I still would continue to take it. I haven't smoked for weeks. So how bad can the side effects really get? I can handle what's happening right now.

Re: Hallucinating taking chantix

Does anyone know at least if chantix makes you more tired? I think I'll go down on the dose and take it at bedtime instead of the morning. It just seems it's dragging me down..

Re: Hallucinating taking chantix

I am taking chantix and have had no side effects, but I am not taking any other type of medication. I think you should talk to your doctor, tell your doctor that its helping you not smoke, but want to check the interaction with the other drugs.


I am tired, but I am not sure if its the chantix or if I am just not getting the rest I need. The 1st week I thought it was the chantix, but I am better now, so who knows.
