Chantix and stomach pain

Common Questions and Answers about Chantix and stomach pain


444932 tn?1273984397 When I read on the Chantix quit line that if you failed the first time, to just keep taking your Chantix and set another quit date. So I did, and I will try, and maybe it will work, but I like what you did and can only hope that that is the way it will finally work for me too. That just little by little, over time, those urges WILL begin to fade and I can see that I'm smoking less and less and will just one day, like you say, "that's it!
Avatar n tn has anyone tsken chantix and experienced breast pain? i tried to look it up on the web and somehow came across this site which had several posts relatd to leg cramps. if anyone has information i'd appreciate it.
444932 tn?1273984397 I never had any problems other then a little gas/queasiness but that wasn't until my second month. Maybe you should try a few more days and if it persists, call the Chantix hotline. Good luck and try to hang in there!
Avatar f tn and doctor again stated to not start the Chantix. I took Chantix back in January/February last year and problems began in April. There is a tort (legal) site also. If you want them, I'll have to go look them up. I'm a court reporter (basically doing deps on personal injury and medical malpractice). So, I WILL NOT take the Chantix again. I truly feel this was the instigating factor for me.
Avatar n tn My chest hurts but it's centered in my breasts. Also got a bit of back pain and neverending nausea. I've been on chantix for a week and a half and will NOT be refilling it. These new pains are the last straw for me!
Avatar f tn all drugs have tons of side effects and listed and unproven problems. I know chantix has some, stomach, depression effectsbut never heard of the heart palpatations or the other stuff. I have been taking it for over a year with just about no problems. I only take a few a week and it has been a big help to me.
195469 tn?1388326488 I smocked heavy form 13 till my first baby at 23 (it was not just smoking either it was pot) i then smoked on and off till i had a stomach problem with reflux and that and sitting outside in the rain ( i would not smoke in front of my children or in the house) that i gave up, it was hard but i done it just like that, im a all or nothing person!!
Avatar n tn I don't know if this is an option for you but I had a great experience with it. On the downside the Chantix is hard on your stomach and will cause naseau but it you hang in there it will pass. Right now I'm weaning myself off of painkillers and we'll see how that goes :) Don't know if this helps but I thought I'd let you know..........
Avatar n tn It huts my stomach to yake a deep breath and I have pain and renderness in my right side and my stomach feels sore to touch and hard. My clothes do not fit and I have to unbutton my pants and skirt because I cannotr breath from the tightness. I have not distinguished that any particular food hurts me and I have the same symptoms if I only eat a few bites. Please help me with any info you might have. Also, I went back to my G. doctor and he prescribed Protonix. Helped a bit for awhile.
Avatar n tn I'm now, since yesterday night with high fever, 38,5 / 39, plus heavy cough and lung back pain ( both right and left). I also have a pain below and under the rib only on my front left hand side. Is it all due to my stop smoking body reaction?

Avatar m tn I never associated it with the Chantix, till about day 14 when I started reading on it, and realized that it could be the Chantix causing the sickness. That was when I realizes that there was a problem with this med. I mean I was so sick that I couldn't get out of bed, it was worse than day 8-10 of my Methadone withdrawal by at least 2 fold. I had never hurt so bad in the last year since I had had surgery.
Avatar n tn Darn I keep wanting to type PBG--makes me think of peanutbutter and jelly. Yes, I know it's a G, but I might start calling you that. Yes, I see what you mean. I just read some threads. From what I gather they've had an imposter of sorts and apparently she keeps popping up here and there.
Avatar f tn I limit caffeine and am trying to quit smoking (but won't take chantix). Although I used to, I do not eat an unusual amount of fast food (perhaps a McDonalds hamburger once or twice a month). I've eliminated most soda from my diet, limiting myself to one or two glasses a month and do not drink anything but diet.
990091 tn?1249200314 At first, my heart would feel like it was going to pound of out my chest, then I started having pains in my stomach, and chest (that mimicked a heart attack), and a burning/stabbing pain in the upper right quadrant of my abdomen. I then started having fluctuations in my bowel movements, going from one extreme or the other, from constipation to diarrhea. This symptom lasted for 3 months. I've had every test known to man done on my digestive tract, with everything coming back normal.
198419 tn?1360245956 Still trying, I had to put the Chantix down for a bit cause I was having such a hard time with pain and other symtoms. I just couldn't handle the extreme upset stomach on top of everything else. You always have to eat before you take it and I did this, but it didn't keep me from that awful feeling of being sick to my stomach. You should give the Chantix a try, it has shown great success in many of us smokers. I am trying to get up the nerve to try again here in a week or so.
Avatar f tn There is evidence of decreased sleep efficiency and ineffective sleep pattern.Similar picture might be seen in chronic pain syndromes.I don't have chronic pain,so,that one has me stumped.Does this sound like I have a major sleep issue,or should I continue with the meds I'm on?I just don't want to make things any worse.Thanks for your opinion on this.
432411 tn?1206475709 I've been on Depo for 6 years (went through many different types of BC but all of them made me go crazy and still didn't help with irregular periods and pain) and never had an issue with it before instead it helped me with and I actually lost weight and kept it off for years. Unfortunately 2.5 years ago my mother spotted a lump in my neck and it turned out to be thyroid cancer (or so I was told) and I had a total thyroidectomy of March 2015.
Avatar n tn A month ago I started on Chantix. The first week I got the stomach flu that was going around. Since then 3-4 days a week I am vomiting, have extremely loose stools and pain in my abdomen on the upper right side. Like under my ribs. The pain shoots up my side to under my breast. Last night, I woke up at 3:30 am and was vomiting. I felt bad all morning and at noon, I started to feel better. I just can't seem to stop this cycle.
Avatar m tn Ok well it may be the Chantix... but I dont know... most symptoms I know of with Chantix are stomach related. Just in case I would try stopping... if you still get you know thats not it... However, i actually think you may have a sinus infection... Very common when you first quit. Usually appears as though you get a cold or something within the first 3 weeks... it's actually like all the crap is coming up from your system.
Avatar n tn I am on methadone for pain and take Miralax daily and have had no problems until i went on Chantix to stop smoking. i am now a non smoker however i have bloated severly for over 2 months. i have gained over 10 inches in stomach, all due to AIR. cat scans show no acitis or blockages. ultra sounds show nothing irregular. they put me on amitza with no reluts at all. i am now trying colonix treatment. i am not a heavey person and everyone is stumped.
518117 tn?1429279873 aspirin truly upsets my stomach anyway. i can do ibuprofen in moderation and be ok. but i was taking 4 every 4 hrs. with this abcess. well when you dont have insurance nor finances, you do the best you can. researched abcess tooth on internet. i knew about the rinsing with warm water and salt. i was already doing that. old remedy my grandmother told me years ago. i can across a home remedy that said to soak a tea bag in warm water, wring it out and put the tea bag on the abcess.
444932 tn?1273984397 or cortisone creams.......Please call your doctor. Nauty.......... I dont' and never took chantix.......
Avatar n tn I now have a sore throat, sinus drainage and nose bleeds, earache, TERRIBLE uncontrollable cough, pain in my chest and back like pneumonia, and chest pain radiating thru shoulder and down left arm (on change to heart rate, so I don
Avatar n tn We've been to a Veinous specialist, orthopedic specialist and a musculaskeletal specialist and they are all shaking their heads in dismay as to what this could possibly be. you say she is almost always in some sort of pain and sometimes it's so bad she can hardly walk. And...yes it is in both calves at the same time. We had an MRI of her back done because that's theoretically where leg pain stems from, but her back looks fine.
Avatar f tn Hi, I used commit lozenges for about a week and when I went for a dental appoinment and the dentist told me that the roof of my mouth was red raw with blisters, he advised me to stop immediately. I also had a sore throat but thankfully, after stopping the lozenges, it went away. In the end, I quit with Chantix. I had no side effects though there are some that complain of joint pain, cramping, gas, bad dreams & stomach upset. Have you smoked while using the lozenges?
Avatar f tn Don't even get me started. I went on Chantix about a month and a half ago. I got so deathly sick to my was horrible. So I got some liquid nausea medicine from the drugstore. I found myself getting up in the morning, drinking the medicine so I could take a pill so I could quit smoking! It was such old behavior and it scared the bejesus out of me, so I stopped. Now I am back to square one and smoking more than ever. I wish I had an answer for you--I wish I had an answer for ME!!!
167 tn?1374177417 What is it that makes them care only about their pain and about nothing and nobody else? I just don't understand it!!! All I see is selfishness...
700212 tn?1240764420 Im not having any SX from the ribba doesnt even mess with my stomach...not yet at least and I take seven of em a day....three in the morning and four at night...I hope everyone is feeling good this week! and Ill keep you all updated on how Im doing!
8012558 tn?1399312257 I went through the period of time in my life (when I was 17 years old) when the food was not available to me all the time (during war in Bosnia). I remember stomach pains from hunger and my therapist thinks that my issues are related to that. I know I don't want to ever have that feeling when you are in pain because you didn't have a good meal in weeks. Food now makes me feel safe and makes me feel good (temporarily). After every time I overeat, I am so mad at myself.
Avatar n tn It did help with the endema. In recent years I have gained 30 pounds and the legs have deep aches and pain to the point they wake me up from sleep. Back in 1992 , short of wearing surgical hose all my life, there wasn't much else to do. I had asked this year, during my physical, for a contrast CT to be sure my viens were okay ... no clots ... etc. The legs were found to have some acceptable calcifications, no clots, but the nodule became the focus.
