Chantix Report: Severe Constipation
A following Chantix side effect report was submitted by a user.
Female patient reported the following Chantix side effects :
Bloating and constipation after 3 weeks of taking the medication. I noticed my regular BM scheduled was decreasing. I had already increased my H2o intake to help with quitting, and the packaging says so too. I began taking a fiber supplement and increasing my fiber intake on top of all the h2o i was drinking. I also take a daily probiotic. I finally had to try milk of magnesia, and that still did not do the trick. Magnesium citrate worked some, but I am miserable and still need something more effective. I may have to stop this medication.Side Effect Event date: Sunday June 24th 12:00:00 AM

Record and Track Your Side Effects
It is very important to keep track of all side effects and discuss them with your doctor. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately.
Most drugs have a large list of nonsevere or mild adverse effects which do not rule out continued usage. These effects depend on individual sensitivity, and can include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, malaise, vomiting, headache, dermatitis, dry mouth, etc. Check commonly reported side effects . These can be considered a form of pseudo-allergic reaction, as not all users experience these effects; many users experience none at all.
