What are the side effects of Champix ?

Hello Doctor , My husband is trying to quit smoking . He started taking Champix and he is in his second week now where he started taking 2 tablets daily of 1 mg. The feeling of nausea started from day 1 of taking the medicine. But now when the dosage has increased he is feeling much tired and his heart is beating fast since he took the morning tablet today. He also feels hot and then feels cold ... Is this normal? or should he stop taking the tablets? By the way, he is still smoking but fewer than before. Appreciate your Advise. AAAAAAA
