I am on my third week on Champix to stop smoking. So far it has been successful. I get the odd craving, but I manage to stop myself. However, I am very lethargic most of the time.

I wake up every morning mid way through the deepest sleep. This makes me feel very lethargic,and disorientated, similar to being really unwell or like I had been drinking the night before.

After a couple of hours of being awake I am fine again, until my next tablet.

Has anyone else experienced this?

      Same here Sue, how long have you been taking Champix? I was a lot better with the lower dose. I stopped on day 14 and i'm on day 17 now.

    Hi, I cant remember feeling so tired, but I did have headaches and nausea. I cut back to a half dose after week 3 or 4, and felt ok again. I havent had a ciggie since last June. Good luck!!!
