I started taking Chantix on Tuesday, and per the instructions doubled the dose on Friday. Saturday (around 2:00am) I woke with sever vertigo. I took no more of the medication and contacted my doctor. Seven full days later I still have moderate vertigo. (I have an appointment with a neurologist on Tuesday of next week.)

I am wondering if others have experienced this as well?

Vertigo is a infrequent symptom associated with taking Chantix. However it usually stops soon after taking the medication.
I suggest you talk to your healthcare provider and maybe switch to a different smoking cessation strategy.
