Stop Smoking Advice
It sounds like you should get a second opinion on this, and perhaps Champix is not the best method at this point. You don't have to go cold turkey - you could consider nicotine patches for example. If you have been previously diagnosed with clinical depression, whatever the initial trigger, you are at increased risk for another episode, and where there is a history of depression doctors may decide against prescribing Champix. If you start having symptoms of depression, you should consult a doctor whether you are on Champix or not. I would suggest you get your medical history translated by a reputable translation company into the language of your host country.
