Feeling tired, depressed after taking of champix. Is it mood alerting drug?

i have been taking champix for about two months now, this is the third time i have taken it. When im on it i feel focused at work, i got the gym 5/7 days a week. Overall i feel great. When i got off champix i feel withdrawn, tired, depressed, and run down. This leads to smoking again. Should i be on a mood altering drug like a ssri?

Thanks for writing to us.
A mood altering drug like ssri will help you during the withdrawal from champix. You can get yourself evaluated by your psychiatrist and get a suitable drug prescribed for yourself. This time you will have to start with champix and SSRI at the same time.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
