Post Xanax and Chantix

I am about to start my Chantix prescription to quit smoking. I have had the pills for a week now but have been afraid to start taking them due to the seemingly 1,000 warnings just from the package insert alone!

I have been talking to friends who have taken it and, knowing the potential or it to cause panic attacks, I looked on line or answers as to whether of not I could take Xanax with the drug.

I was happy to find a thread that addressed my concerns so I decided to join up.

Unfortunately, that thread has been closed so I am opening up a new one in hopes that I can get more feedback, as well as, share my own personal experience day by day.

Re: Xanax and Chantix

I began taking Chantix this morning. Noticing a little numbness in my lower lip and neck area, but not sure it is related to the Chantix. I was on my second cup of coffee, so I stopped drinking it. I DO suffer from neuropathy so I am hopeful this is just a normal, and hopefully, passing sensation.

Going to TRY and take it easy to today. Keep the xanax handy just in case...

Re: Xanax and Chantix

On day 4 of Chantix and I have cut down smoking dramatically. Cigarettes don't taste good at all and they don't have that satisfaction or gratification they once gave me. So far I have not experienced any major side effects. I did have some very vivid dreams last night and early AM that woke me up, but happy to say it is going quite well.
