The severity of the side effects of various prescription drugs speaks to the desperation and state of mind of those who would consume such potent medication. The Chantix commercial advertising a non smoking drug makes non smokers aware of the nightmares being experienced by smokers trying to kick the habit.
The advertisement advised all who were considering taking Chantix that it has caused changes in behavior, mood or thinking, hostility, agitation, mood swings, suicidal thoughts or actions(meaning people have committed suicide while having prescription to this drug) either while taking Chantix or after they quit.
It is stunning that one who was aware of the deleterious, health threatening effects of this antismoking drug would still consider swallowing even one of the pills! I suppose some smokers have such a miserable life being addicted to nicotine that they are willing to try just about any potential cure.
Zyban also involves similar risks. I don’t smoke, but if I did would exhaust all natural cure alternatives before taking Zyban or Chantix which has been linked to 500 suicides.
