  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.
