I was smocking for 25 years. Can be considered as heavy smocker. I took chantix for 7 weeks and quit smocking in January 15 2008. I did not take a single sig after that day. I cannot say that I feel better. After 4 months I periodically have arythmia and my blod test test showed high T4. It looks like thyroid problem, but I never had this problem before...
So, I see many people here have problem DURING taking chantix, but I started having this AFTER several months.
Sometimes I think this is nicotine, not chantix related problem. Couple of days ago I decided to take one chantix pill when I had my heart arythmic beat. I was surprised - everything returned to normal -normal hert beat, good feeling. No I doubt that I have thyroid problem...
Did anyone here had similar experience? Please respond... I afraid that doctors will try to fix me by doing incorrect actions.. Thanks!
