Can chantix be taken along with IVF injections ?

35, 5 3 , 160 lbs. Good medical history . I am a smoker and my family practitioner just prescribed chantix to help me stop smoking. However, I just started my IVF injections last night, have not started chantix. Should I take it now or continue to smoking until after my injections. Will the chantix effect how my body reacts to the IVF injections?

Recently I had a really bad experience with hallucinations caused by a combination of medications taken along with Chanix (sp). The other medications were Baclofen 20mg, pramipexole 2mg, Wellbutrin mg? and The Hallucinations caused me to go out driving at 5:00 am in my car and getting stuck in the snow. Trying to get the car out, for some reason made the car catch on fire. I was able to get out of the car before it became completely engulfed in flames and burned down to almost nothing. When the fire department arrived, I had no idea where i was at or why i was out driving. I was taken to the hospital for two days, had ivies to flush my system of the medications. The doctors said that the mixtures of the medications listed above were the cause of what happened. Since then the dosages have been lowered and chanix completely removed from what i take for medications. I am doing ok now except that i still have strange dreams and talk in my sleep. What is going on and why is this quit smoking medication still on the market even with all the possible side effects?

Problem: Erectile Dysfunction. I am 46-years old and on my 12th week of a smoking cessation program. I took Chantix the first two weeks and have been using Nicorette Lozenges on an as needed basis since. My wife also started the program with me, and both of us had been smokers for approximately 30-years. During the first four weeks, sex was no problem, and hadn't been a problem prior to quitting the cigarettes. Starting around the fifth week and up till now I can no longer maintain an erection during intercourse. The good news is that I still wake up with a pretty good erection sometimes but morning usually isn't the greatest time to wake the wife up for a romp in the hay. Everything I've read about ED and smoking runs contrary to what I am experiencing now. Could it be the Nicorrette? Why am I going through this and what can I do about it? Is it normal for someone to experience ED after they have quit smoking and how long does it last?
