8 months and still waiting...It has been 8 months since I took Chantix for 6 days back in February of this year. While taking, I experienced euphoria, dissociation, lethargy, and joint pain. Stopped taking on day 6 (due to the joint pain) and 2 days afterwards, I had an utter complete mental meltdown of panic, suicidal thoughts, crying for no reason, was horrible. These issues did not go away, and I was treated with a combination of 2 antidepressants, and something for panic to regulate my moods. 8 months later, I continue to have the muscle stiffness/soreness, especially in my legs, memory issues, and problems with confused thinking at times. I am, simply put, not the same person I was before I took this drug. And, since I did not make it to day 7 (the stop smoking day) I was not able to quit smoking. I wish I could go back in time, and have made the decision to not take this drug.

Is it okay to combine Adderall and chantix?

Chantix messed me up. I was on 30 RX of Adderall for ADHD. I took the chantix for 3 days but it exasperate my adhd. I got really hyper and couldn't focus long enough to drive safely to work.... Let alone work:) I had no effects of the adderall and I started drinking a little caffeine. Still no effects. I talked to doctor and asked if this was normal and he said yes. He said to stop taking Adderall for 5 days to reset my brain. I did just that! I last took Chantix 3 weeks ago. I took my reg script I have been taking of adderall for the first time today after being med free for 5 days and I still cant focus. The only effect adderall is having is keeping me up when I want to be asleep. I hope my meds for adhd will work soon. I don't wanna get fired and I'm falling way behind at work. I have been smoke free for 3 weeks too. I took chantix for 3 days and it made me to adhd so I stopped and promise myself that if I stopped taking the pill I had to stop smoking!
