  1. A couple of RxISK’s friends on Twitter have asked if there’s a general petition that citizens can sign onto.

    I’ve got a related question: If people have an experience with Chantix they would like to have reported at the October 16 hearing, they should get in touch RIGHT AWAY. Who should they contact?

  2. Omer Jama, 39, a television editor, had no history of mental illness or depression when he was prescribed Chantix. 2 months later he stabbed himself to death. His family called for an investigation into the safety of the drug after the coroner recorded an open verdict. Naturally, Pfizer insisted a direct link between Champix and psychiatric problems had not been officially established and stated instead that “nicotine withdrawal can lead to mood swings and behavioural changes”. Shame on them.

  3. I started Chantix about 6 weeks ago, I have been getting absolutely furious over small stuff, screaming, yelling, wanting to break things. I know it’s the Chantix, does this pass or get worse?

  4. Let me tell you…. not an hour ago I could not for the life of me find my watch… legitimately missing from my box. I threw a fit!!!! Tossed my entire room and caused my wife to bug out. This is not like me at all. Usually I will look, find it or not and move forward. I am a bit worried that this may be causing more stress and anger/rage issues. Time to visit the doctor

  5. I had been using chantix for about 3 months. My brother passed away in July. Which set me in a depressed way. 2 weeks ago. I threatened to hurt someone I love. I immediately went for help. They advised me to stop chantix. I have been doing a lot better since.
