Common Questions and Answers about How long is chantix in your system

chantix

This is going on the 2nd full day of no Chantix but I am still feeling depressed. I want to know how long does it stay in your system for. I woke up today and felt close to normal and then it came back again. I had depression 16 years ago, which started off with post pardom depression that lead into severe depression which this is feeling way too familiar to that and I do NOT want to go through that again.

Since you already work there, at least you were at a hospital when you had your attack! How convenient is that? Hoping today is better for you : ) Was going to correct Kathyjo on your name, but maybe you did it on purpose and I don't want to assume. I suspect though, you were just feeling awful and wanted to hurry up and lay down. Kathyjo.....Lol, I can't help but wonder when the heck I have been any help to YOU?
The doc said that it was possible that I could have an allergic reaction after 10 days on it b/c it slowly builds up in your system. Its half-life is 24 hours so that it maintains a steady supply of whatever the active ingredient is that makes you not want to smoke. Even on day 10, my cravings/desire to smoke had not diminished and I had not completely quit smoking. I had cut down some and just started noticing the day I had to quit that cigs tasted bad. I wish you luck.
I stopped a 35yr smoking habit and am no longer taking the Chantix. Once it gets in your system you can begin to cut back without w/d's. I think I cut back by 50% without even thinking about it as I was "forgetting" to smoke and Chantix made cigarettes taste like dirt. I recommend breaking some of the habitual times that you smoke which helped me a lot. After dinner eat a mint instead of smoking then smoke later. Also I took mine only before bed as the nausea was a killer.
Hi lonote, You wrote a little blip to me a while back and I see that your are friends with tzt. Anyone who is friends with her is a friend in my book. I just saw this post and wanted to tell you that my parents (my mom has been longer that my dad) are both on Chantix. I don't know how long you have been on it but she says it's a absolute miracle drug to help with the cravings. She has quit cold turkey before and said this is just NOTHING compared to that.
lighting, taking two puffs, putting it out, relighting) I'm wondering, how long does it take to actually get into your system and for it to start stopping/blocking the nicotine from entering the receptors? (It didn't state any of this on the website) Another important question is this: Is this a medication that you have to wean off of? Is it habit forming? If so, I'm not taking it anymore.. don't wanna go through the garbage of having to 'wean' again! Please let me know, guys.. Love ya all!
how long does it take to get nicotine out of your system & is there anything you can do to help speed up the progress?How long can nicotine be detected with a saliva test ?
I feel so much better that you know someone who recovered from the anxiety from using chantix. My son is taking med and will see a therapist in 3 weeks. Your words are very encouraging that we need to deal with this positively and that he can overcome this set back. The more I read the better I feel that anxiety can be managed and not a life stopper. I have read the other postings and they were also a great help.
If I live to be 100 (God willing) I will never understand how I believed that and why. Well JP, it is day 4 for you and you are in one piece. You have survived the "72" hours of physical withdrawals. You are strong in your resolve to quit, no matter what gets thrown at you, congrats! It only gets better from here on in and before you know it, you will be coaxing others through their rough patch. That's what is wonderful about this board.
Your "want to" has got to catch up to your "need to" and then you will have a good shot at quitting. In order for it to be successful, you must truly want it......like anything in life : ) Prepare yourself by reading the articles at whyquitdotcom. Joel's library has wonderful articles that really address any and all issues you might have. In addition, they support a "cold turkey" quit.
Drug Advertising for prescription drug is banned in Australia in almost all ways - the name cannot be referred to for example. There are also restrictions now on the gifts and incentives that can be given out to doctors as well. But then again our medical system is socialised and heavily regulated. The US system is unregulated and even the FDA cannot be trusted not to make a mistake - look at Vioxx.
carrot sticks instead of lolipops, celery instead of candybars..... Hang in there and remember that your goal is to be around for your baby. Walking is a great way to exercise and your baby will love it too! Good luck and don't smoke!
Oh my gosh, I feel for you all. I started having weird sensations and feelings, anxiety and a few panic attacks when I was 17. Even though I know that stress and the way we handle stress has a lot to do with it, I had an underlying issue. When I was 22, my mom was reading a book on menopause and found out that someone at my age can suffer from hormone deficiency and premenopausal symptoms. Even though I don't feel like this was the source of my anxiety, my anxiety was definately amplified by it.
The elimination half life of neurontin is 5-7 hrs while chantix has a half life of 24 hrs so at the end of two weeks i dont think there will be any trace of any of these two medicines in your body.Please consult your physician about your persistent bodyache.
Hi Mandy, Welcome. Chantix is not on any how to get MS lists. I'm a little leery of the source you found that states this. The documented side affects of Chantix include some of the affects you described initially in your post. I'm very sorry for what you are experiencing. You sound very scared, and no matter the source, symptoms of this nature cause understandable fear. I'm glad you found us and hope we can help you out. Sorry I cannot say if this is MS.
) I know it will get easier and the cravings will only happen every once in a while and sometimes temper and irritability isn't about addiction but something else. I doubt if Chantix can stay in your system for more then a few days never mind a number of months so it has to be something else.
You are going to experience some w/d, but I found if you taper it is not as bad. This is a great place for support. Your wife probably doesn't want to acknowledge your addiction because no one wants to admit they or their loved ones has a problem. Or they want to minimalize it. Prayers work!
Support is so very important and I applaud you for sticking around as long as you did, but honestly, there is absolutely no reason for emotionally beating up on the person who you need the most : ( I think this is something that we tend to do........always hurt the ones we love. I agree that it can make you crazy, but please, have him read the articles at whyquit.com and really read them so he will understand what's going on inside him and how he can better cope with his loss.
A year is really not that long when you compare it to how long we smoked so I would guess your feelings are normal.
Maybe having anxiety, adding Chantix, going off Chantix, going off Klonopin and who knows if it's mold you guys are smelling in your apartment; all this overwhelmed your fiances system and she was thrown into an anxiety state and can't get out. Then you toss the on and off AD's and her system just can't take all this.
I WAS LAYING IN BED ONE NIGHT AND THOUGHT TO MYSELF I HADNT TAKEN ANY TODAY SO JUST FOR KICKS I THOUGHT TO MYSELF I WONDER HOW LONG I COULD GO BEFORE THE DAMN WITHDRAWLS KICKED IN SOON 24 TURNED IN TO 48 AND 48 TURNED IN TO 72 AND SO ON IM NOT SAYING I FORGOT ALL ABOUT THEM BUT IT HELPED LIKE NO OTHER I AM 1 WEEK CLEAN AND FEEL GREAT AS FAR AS SOME OF THE SYMTOMS THAT I NEDED A LITTLE EXTRA HELP WITH WAS DIAREA BUT SOME DIAREA PILLS WILL HELP WITH THAT KEEP BUSY MOVE ALOT EXERSISE SWEATING
He has never tapered off--fortunately, not gone to 4 mg either. The easiest way to tell you how much he chews is that in a week, he goes through 1 1/2 to 2 boxes. Each box contains 110 pcs. He can't understand why I get so pissed off about the amount of money or doesn't want to. He has managed to stop drinking (thankfully!!) for 7 months now and says that I shouldn't bug him about this. I'd like to know if there are any long-term side effects.
Supposedly it's a long process to kill all the fungus in your body, but I'll report back in a couple of months if it helps.
Today's a new day, though... I forgot, but how long does it take for your lungs to start cleaning themselves out?
It blocks the receptors in the brain or something so your body doesn't want the cigarettes. But, it is a prescription and you should ask your doctor about it. (It does cause crazy dreams and stuff so best to talk to your doctor.) I would say cold turkey for you is not a good idea. Good luck!
Hi Friends! Welcome all Tramadol warriors. We're all very glad to see you. Please come in and share.
I would imagine, with insomnia, how you would want a smoke to accompany your long night. What would be more worrisome is if you awoke to smoke. The patch is probably the best quit aid. To bad you are allergic to the glue. As for the gum, well I'm not a fan...my personal opinion. I know many who have quit using it, but now they are hooked on the gum! No matter what way you look at it, as long as you chew it, you are putting nocotine in your body.
I realize you made this post a while ago, but I wish the best of luck to you and I hope your symptoms are long gone at this point. However, I hope this information is useful for others seeking answers to their ailments.
Since he calls all the shots in your life, you go. Your friend doesn't like your choice of clothing either. Instead of politely telling you that you have lousy taste, he burns little holes in these items so you will want to throw them out. Sometimes, he tires of the furniture and gets rid of it too. Occasionally, he gets really nasty and decides the whole house must go. He gets pretty expensive to support.
