I took chantix over a month ago for exactly one week. I started feeling very lethargic and emotionless so I didnt want to chance getting worse. The chantix also made me sick; as in my lungs felt like they were in a vice when I would lay down to sleep at night. I thought I had caught the flu and it was the chantix all along. I am still having horrible anxiety problems. I am a waitress and have been for 13 years of my life I have never had problems taking an order or remembering things that my customers need. For the past month work has been so chaotic. I panic, get the shakes, and get that aweful flight or fight feeling in my stomach constantly. I cry for no reason at all. Its hard for me just to leave the house. I wish I would have listened to all the warnings from my family and friends. I dont feel like I am ever gonna feel normal again.
