What are the side effects of Champix?

I am a 30yr old man (no health conditions, 6ft, 180lbs) who has recently started taking champix to aid in sessation of chewing tobacco. Last night I had 2 drinks & went to bed, I was woken up at 6:00am because I believe I had been incontinent. Is this a side effect of champix? Or possible champix & some alcohol? Thank you

Hi,

No...usual side effects are constipation, dry mouth, fatigue, weight gain, nausea, sleep disorders. Alcohol might be the culprit. Just wait and watch.
     
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
