    ďBut I donít want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you canít help that," said the Cat: "weíre all mad here. Iím mad. Youíre mad."
    "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldnít have come here.Ē

    I thought Chamtix already had a black box warning. That's what the pharma companies have been trying to get removed.

    What does it actually do to your brain? Does it block your ability to absorb nic or something? I'd imagine that would be quite dangerous for maintaining concentration while driving etc.

    There are well known side effects such as mood swings, depression, imnsomnia, nightmares to name a few. It's pretty much the first thing people say when you talk about champix. The GP you get it from would tell you of all these before they give it to you. It's in their duty of care to do so. Whether everyone pays attention or takes it seriously is another matter.

    On another note, warning labels on those things will be as good as the cig packs. A nice waste of taxpayers money. Everyone who's offended will just cover it up and the rest will just be desensitized to the sight.

    I took zyban but I presume it was the same. It's my understand is works similar to an antidepressant and dampens down the nicotine receptors in the brain. The reason you continue to smoke in the initial outset is to keep the receptors triggered so that the drug can link properly.

    I used to fly around Asia for work and I had a couple of mini blackouts on a plane at altitude. At the same time lost my vocabulary retrieval ability. I thought I was having a mini stroke.... Scared the living bejesus out of me and I stopped immediately.

    I was warned about insomnia and nightmares but that was no different to the dreams and sweats I got with patches so it was no biggie at the time.
