Psychological Problems Linked to Chantix
Sold by Pfizer, Chantix helps smokers ease into quitting by eliminating the side effects of nicotine withdrawal. Approved by the FDA in 2006, Chantix has helped many quit smoking. Unfortunately, because the drug affects the brain, it has also caused some harmful psychological side effects.
Chantix users have experienced depression, anxiety and sudden bouts of abnormal behavior. Some have even attempted or committed suicide. It has also been reported that alcohol use increases these psychological side effects. However, the drug contains no warning about consuming alcohol while taking Chantix.
Since the drug’s approval, the FDA has required Pfizer to print these psychological effects on the warning label. If you or a loved one has been hurt by the side effects of Chantix, you may be able to seek compensation.
