I took the new pill chantix to try to quit smoking about 8 weeks ago. 3 days after taking it I started to feel weak and sore. After 8 days I could hardly move, I was in pain everywhere. I stopped taking it and went to my Doctor, who said I have arthritis, and the chantix had nothing to do with it. However, before I took it I was in perfect health, I am 51 years old and very active. Has anyone else experienced this? I don't believe I have arthritis, the pain has decreased but is not gone.
