Chantix & muscle cramps

Hi everyone,

I read a previous post by a female about bad leg cramps at night due to chantix, I would like to restart this conversation as the first male poster to admit to these same symptoms.

I have been taking chantix for three weeks and just over the last few days I have been experiencing accute calf and groin cramps after suddenly waking up in the middle of the night. This has not effected me much during the day other then it feels like the muscles that cramped the night before are weak and tender. I have not had any other side effects from chantix other then vivid dreams and have successfully gone two weeks smoke free.

if this is the only side effect I am getting for taking 1mg in the morning and 1mg at night then I will stick with it. I hope the cramps don't get worse and wonder if there are any types of nutriants or foods that can counter this effect?
