I took Chantix for a year. I had a relapse at 2 months and for about 3 weeks I smoked. I went right back on it and I have been smoke free for 9 months. After 6 months on the drug I started reducing the dose. I took one mg/day in the am. After 7 months I stopped taking it all together. I immediately noticed anxiety, increased appetite and depression. After several weeks without the drug I realized the reason for these symptoms and started taking 1/2 a 1 mg pill in the am. The symptoms disappeared. I have now dropped to 1/2 a pill every other day and I am experiencing the same symptoms again. Very frustrating but it did allow me to quit smoking and for that I am grateful.
