    Hello,

    I started one tablet a day of champix on Tuesday, and today is the first day of 2 pills per day. I woke up this morning with welts on my body, similar to an allergic reaction. Cannot be sure it is the champix but nothing else comes to mind and was suggested I stop and see if it clears up. Anyone else have the "allergic reaction" look? Thanks, Renzo

    Hi rpella,

    It does sound like an allergic reaction. I would definitely go see a doctor.
    Have a good day

    Hi rpella,

    Sorry to hear you are having such symptoms!

    It's always a good idea to check right away with your Pharmacist or Doctor if you have any concerning side effects when starting a new medication. Hopefully your symptoms are temporary!

    Take care,

    Jennifer

    Hi,

    Everyone's system is unique so keep aware of your body, it will let you know if champix is a good fit.

    Mamabear, you've managed past the nightmares and sickness and are just doing great, what a change you've accomplished. Congratulations on one month of freedom!

    Lillian
