Pfizer acknowledges that Chantix causes some really nasty side effects in some people. But, the company continues to market the drug. What in the HELL does it take to get a drug off the market anymore?????
I created this blog so the next person who has a nightmare with this medication doesn’t feel as alone as I did when I started falling apart.Have a Chantix/Champix story to share? Mail it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org Yes, I will even publish the “positive” ones.
Here’s some good reading about bipolar disorder and Chantix:
I can definitely relate to this because my doctor ignored all the signs that I was having a bad reaction to Chantix. He also ignored my history of depression when prescribing it and other doctors after him also didn’t see the link between the Chantix and my near nervous breakdown. I eventually found doctors who verified that’s what caused it, but, it took fighting and refusing to accept a diagnosis that I didn’t agree with.
