Both Pfizer on its Patient Information Sheet or the FDA at its website could have easily alerted smokers of the identity of health risk groups included within and excluded from clinical studies. They close by advising that doctors prescribe varenicline with caution, that patients should be told to stop treatment and contact their doctor immediately if they develop suicidal thoughts or behavior, that varenicline should be stopped immediately if agitation, depressed mood, or changes in behavior are observed that are of concern to the patient, family, or caregivers, and that the safety and efficacy of varenicline in people with serious psychiatric illness have not been established.
I am amazed at all the different side effects I have heard about. I know that it states that in rare cases suicide ideation can occur, but what is rare? I can’t stand to be around my children. At this point it’s like I completely gave up.
Gut feeling was so bad, that I wrote a note that said, if anything happens to me, blame it on the chantix, put it into a top drawar in my house in case anything bad happened.

The first week it was mainly the nausea, weird dreams, weakness, and the headaches and constipation. Still going strong, I really don’t want to smoke any more.
You did the right thing not taking it any more. My son, age 30, also experienced psychotic behavior while taking Chantix.
It indexes 15,096 smoking cessation articles and 45,860 suicide articles. I am still receiving reports of Pfizer giving purchase price refunds to users experiencing reactions and unable to continue taking varenicline. I knew that the only way to get rid of these shadows was to cut my legs off.
I’m not going to lie, after ready these stories, I am kid of afraid of what the weeks ahead have in store for me. It is worth a try because it works and not everyone has these extreme side effects. Chantix has more than doubled from 122 to 272. Since this happened, I have numerous people say that, yes it helped them with the stopping smoking, but that they felt funny, depressed, agitated, and one lady said she thought about taking her life.
Pfizer’s Patient Information sheet only mentioned vomiting, nausea, abnormal dreams, sleep disturbance and constipation as “the most common side effects.

I started taking Chantix 12 days ago. Instead, Pfizer was rather crafty in shifting the information burden to U. My faimly talked me into quitting the chantix and i did. The only comments I’ve so far received regarding telephone support have been positive.
This needs to be taken off the market. What’s it like using varenicline? Champix a step forward or back? But the second week I didn’t get out of bed, I just wanted to die.
I took it at 10 AM, it is now almost 4 PM. These symptoms have been reported in patients trying to stop smoking with or without Chantix. It makes you wonder if anyone at the FDA gives a hoot about blinding integrity in quitting product trials.
This is my 3rd week on Chantix, and I plan to quit taking it. I have had horrible thoughts of killing myself, alienated most of my friends and sleep 10 or more hrs a day.
BEFORE Chantix, I was the happiest person alive! I’m just lucky enough to have a wife that loves me enough to not leave my side and help me through this. The depression and the suicidal thoughts are there everyday.
How about an acute psychotic episode that has left her possible permanent damage. In early September she ended up being hospitalized for observation and every since has experienced all of the things that are not listed on the medication.

As this new Gallup Poll screams, the pharmaceutical industry has been lying to smokers for decades about both their chances, and about how most quitters succeed. This Is My Brain on Chantix I’d heard it was the most effective stop-smoking drug yet.
