While Chantix has been able to claim a high success rate in helping smokers to quit (44% according to their official site), the drug's side effects have been reported to include everything from nausea and vomiting to strange dreams, depression, and even thoughts of suicide.

Conversely, there are also blogs reporting on Chantix success stories.
