Reports of serious Chantix side effects, including a possible link between use of Chantix and suicide resulted in the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issuing a black box warning for the smoking cessation drug. Chantix lawsuits have been filed, alleging patients who used Chantix were harmed by the medication.

Chantix Suicide Warnings

In July 2009, the FDA announced an update to Chantix (known generically as varenicline) warnings, alerting patients to the risk of serious mental health events linked to use of the smoking cessation drug. Pfizer, maker of Chantix, was required to put a Boxed Warning on the Chantix label, highlighting the risk of depressed mood, hostility and suicidal thoughts when using the medication. At the time of the announcement, the FDA noted that patients should weigh the risks of continuing smoking against the risks of using Chantix to quit. The FDA warned, however, that some patients experienced unusual changes to their mood or behavior even after stopping the medication.

In addition to the Boxed Warning, the FDA required Pfizer to conduct a clinical trial to determine how frequently mental health symptoms occurred in patients using Chantix to quit smoking.

Chantix Suicide

When the FDA made its announcement in 2009, it had received 98 crude reports of completed suicide associated with Chantix (a crude report means the FDA had not examined each report in depth to ensure there were no duplicates). It had a further 188 crude reports of suicide attempts.

In October 2011, the FDA announced that two studies concluded Chantix does not lead to more hospitalizations from psychiatric events than other nicotine replacement therapies. The agency noted, however, that the studies were too small to detect rare adverse events and did not include the increased risk of psychiatric events that did not result in hospitalization.

A study published online in the Public Library of Science journal PLoS One (11/11), however, suggests that use of Chantix was eight times more likely to be linked to suicidal behavior than other nicotine replacement products. The study analyzed reports of serious self-injury or depression associated with the use of Chantix. Furthermore, the study found that 90 percent of all reports of suicide linked to the use of a smoking cessation product from 1998 through 2010 were linked to the use of Chantix, even though Chantix was only on the market from 2006.

Chantix Heart Attack

On June 16, 2011, the US Food and Drug Administration issued a warning that Chantix may be associated with an increased risk of certain cardiovascular adverse events in patients who have cardiovascular disease. This information was added to Chantix physician labeling. According to the FDA, a clinical trial of 700 smokers with cardiovascular disease who were treated with Chantix or placebo showed patients treated with Chantix suffered more cardiovascular adverse events than those treated with a placebo. The cardiovascular events included angina pectoris, nonfatal myocardial infarction, need for coronary revascularization and new diagnosis of peripheral vascular disease. Although the number of cardiovascular events was small, the FDA notes that some events, including heart attack, occurred more frequently in patients treated with Chantix.

Chantix Lawsuits

Chantix lawsuits have been filed against Pfizer Inc, alleging the smoking cessation drug caused users to commit suicide or attempt suicide, and that Pfizer did not adequately warn patients or the medical community about the risk of side effects. Patients who used Chantix and attempted suicide before mid-2009 while still taking the medication may be eligible to file a lawsuit. Similarly, family members whose loved ones committed suicide while taking Chantix might have grounds for a lawsuit.

Since taking Chantix back in 2009 I've suffered terrible memory loss. I have trouble remembering things I used to do on a daily basis. I can't remember directions. I've taken two classes and by the time I get home I can't remember anything I've learned. Things that used to be second nature to me I can no longer remember. This has effected my home, my job, everything. At the time I thought once I quit taking the medication my memory would return...unfortunately it's never returned.

I believe the use of Chantix lead me to be extremely depressed. The only help from the depression was taking my opiate pain medication. I became addicted to opiates after never having any issues or major problems. It lead to a divorce and loss of employment. I had to attend a counseling center to break my opiate dependence.

The drug caused me to smoke more instead of less and this increase in habit didn't go away after stopping. I had horrific nightmares while taking the drug. I became so depressed that I no longer cared if I was dead or alive. It was as though I was just going through the motions of life, because I had to, not because I wanted to. I considered suicide because nothing mattered to me anymore. I stopped taking the drug and the suicidal thoughts went away but I have struggled with depression and major anxiety every since. To be clear, I had been treated for depression and anxiety several years prior to starting Chantix but NEVER had suicidal thoughts or tendancies before taking Chantix and had been off medication and without symptoms for several years when I started Chantix. Now I've had to start treatment for anxiety again. I told my doctors and anyone else who would listen that Chantix was a killer drug in early 2007. I knew it would cause people to commit suicide.

I started having panic attacks and suffered from depression after starting chantix. I quit my job of 3 years due to anxiety and stress that I couldn't deal with. I have been on 3 different antidepressants and 1 anxiety medicine. I still have not been able to get off of the medicine. I quit smoking for a while only to start back twice as heavily to deal with the anxiety. I was pregnant with my 4th child and had to be on lexapro for the duration of my pregnancy. My child was born 5 weeks early.

I was not able to sleep a full night when I was taking chantix. I kept getting dizzy and I was not able to function. Being on those pills made me feel useless during the time I took them and even afterwards. I gained so much weight from taking the medication, and I am still not able to lose it. I cried basically every day for no reason.

Suicidal thoughts, suicidal plans, immense anxiety, feeling like it is all he can do to not lose his mind, he feels like he is losing his mind. Staying in bed for nine months, never going out anymore, not wanting to see family or friends, never bathing, the inability to function on a normal level.

I was on Chantix for 4 weeks. I became severly depressed, very aggressive towards others, violent at times, and considered suicide because of these things. I even lost my job because of my actions. After being off the medicine for 2 months I am still having anxiety and stress problems. I am also still having trouble sleeping.

Since taking Chantix I have suffered depression, suicidal thoughts and am afraid to tell anyone. I have never had thoughts of harming myself or others until taking Chantix. I prefer to be alone all the time. I also get major headaches and forget things a lot (simple things) since taking Chantix. I was told I had to stay on it for three months in order to successfully stop smoking.

I sent my son away, I started drinking. I got terribly depressed and angry. Within a matter of months I came home from work one day, cooked dinner for my kids and went in my room, got in bed and took 70 pills and fell asleep. Next thing I'm waking up in the emergency room. I have been sick since.

I took Chantix for 1 month hoping to quit a pack a day habit that I'd had for almost 20 years. I am a divorced mother to a wonderful 4 year old boy. I was working in a job I loved, but after being on Chantix for a couple of weeks I started experiencing an extreme chronic fatigue feeling, depression, desperation to have a few minutes away from my son (the whole time I was with him).

I wound up being "laid off"...I was unable to close sales. everyday was an extreme battle to get out of bed. It worsened after I stopped taking the drug and I was smoking more...anxiety was like a rope cinched around my throat and my chest. I have been depressed before, even anxious before, but had never considered or entertained thoughts like "it would be better to be dead...".

I remember being in the emergency room for pain that resembled appendicitis and hoping I needed surgery b/c it would be such a relief to be "unconcious".

I'm better now, but not the same. I stopped caring about how I looked, what others think, started drinking alcohol to try to escape the misery. I'm no longer in that worst place. I wonder though, if I've lost the capacity for joy, confidence and emotional stability for a life time, though. I hope I keep getting better and I hope everyone else affected negatively does as well.

I yelled at my wife, new born baby and other kids because I could not stand the noises they made. I also stayed in the bedroom because the light made it worse. I couldn't eat, or sleep. I was fired from my job for not being able to work and perform my daily tasks because of the migraines. I finally after eight weeks quit taking it and they went away. But the damages I incurred are irreplacable.

Lack of sleep, lack of confidence, lack of drive, and finally, I still smoke. After I stopped taking Chantix, I began feeling 100% better physically and mentally, however, I did continue to smoke more heavily and now I am up to 2 packs per day.

I have been married to my husband for almost 8 years. We have been through the worst of times and always seemed to make it as a team. He was my best friend and now he is someone I don't even know anymore and we are talking about splitting up for reasons that I can't comprehend and he can't even explain. For the first time and we have been through way worse times than these, he has been talking about killing himself and I am for the first time afraid of him, I am ashamed to say. Even if I am doing exactly what he wants or asks he is still very much angry for no reason. He is being so outrageously unreasonable, I don't know what to do. It is like he just hates me and I haven't even given him a reason. I am so afraid this is the end of a once strong relationship and friendship, I throught that would last through anything. I am trying so hard to hang on because I know this isn't him. I don't even care about the money, I just want my husband back and to tell other people this medicine is pure evil. I go regularly to a phschologist, due to an auto accident I had, my husband started joining in shortly before going on chantix. He filled out a questionare that had the question have you ever thought about suicide and the answer was never. That was answered when times were at their worse, and he was feeling a little depressed because of our finances and being unemployed. But now that he has a job and been on chantix, he has spoke about it more than a few times that I myself have heard.
Things are supposed to be getting better now that he has a job, not worse. People at work, our friends and family have noticed a difference in him.

After taking Chantix for one month, I I was hospitalized for 8 days after not sleeping for nearly 15 days. I havent worked in 3 months since this incident because I am on leave for a mood disorder. I never had a mood disorder before taking Chantix. I am now on 5 medications I take twice a day and can no longer live a normal life. I am also back to a pack of cigarettes a day.

I began taking Chantix and began feeling a sense of worthlessness, withdrawing from family and friends, also a lack of interest in life in general.

Previous to taking the drug, I have been a very happy and healthy person, however, on 03/06/08 I was put into treatment for clinical depression and attempted suicide (something I never thought I would experience).

I had to go through a "detox" program for the drug and since then have gone to several "Suicide Anonymous" meeting to make sure that this does not occur again. I went to the Internet in hopes of learning more about the drug and was flabbergasted to my findings, learning that I am not the only person like this out there.

This drug needs to be taken off the market! I have endured several emergency room, treatment and doctors bills since this occurrence and would certainly appreciate the opportunity to help in any way to stop the market of Chantix.

I was first prescribed Chantix in October 2007. The drug information sheet listed stomach problems as possible side effects, There was no information regarding mood changes or recommendations regarding alcohol. I took the medication for a short time in November 2007 and stopped because I had to go back on flight status,

My next attempt was on February 10, 2008. I was able to take myself off flight status due to weather and workload. I took the medication until February 17, 2008. On the evening of February 16, 2008 I had drinks with friends. I recall very little until February 19,2008. I had gone to jail twice, been tased and pepper sprayed by police, broken an office glass door, had nightmares and halluciatinations, and felt like I had experienced a "Rambo style" flashback. There is very little recollection of events over that 72 hour period.

My motor home had been impounded and damaged. I had been charged with resisting arrest and public intoxication and taken a bottle of asprin and numerous xanax pills.

The unpublished side effects of Chantix has placed my aviation medical in jepoardy and has the potential to make me one of the homless Viet Nam vet in this country

I am being charged with 1st degree arson and reckless endangerment after trying to set my house on fire. I have a pristine record and a top secret clearance from the DOD. I have never broken a law outside of a parking ticket (or a speeding ticket when I was younger) and now I'm being charged with a felony? That is not me. A week and a half later after trying to set the house on fire, I swallowed a bottle of Seroquel and, after realizing what I had done, drove myself to the emergency room. I was hospitalized in ICU for four days.

I now am attending AA every day and have no interest in hurting myself or others. I had no idea Chantix was related to suicide ideation, suicide or bizarre behavior. Needess to say my boss has been stretched to the limit...but I am lucky to be working in a supportive atmosphere.

I work in mental health and almost ended up a client instead of employee. I had been on Chantix 3 weeks and started getting so depressed I couldn't function. I wanted to beat my head over a brick wall to make the thoughts stop. I wanted to die. Out of all the things I have went through in 42 years, this is the worst. I didn't even sleep for three days because of the thoughts. I never want anyone else to have to go through what I went through that week.

I was stopped just prior to pulling the trigger to a handgun by my girlfriend. I have no recollection of this incident but was handcuffed and taken to the hospital for suicidal ideations. I was told that this chantix medication is the primary factor to the behavior that I was going through. I had an increased feeling of helplessness and depression while on this medication. Had it not been for my girlfriend I would not be alive today. I feel that this company should be held accountable for the medication that they say is safe to take. It was medically documented by a doctor that it was the chantix that caused this depressed and suicidal behavior.

Never had depression in my life until using this drug. Thoughts of suicide come from nowhere almost a year after taking. I explained to my doctor while I was taking this drug that I was depressed and could it be from the drug, he said that is not a side affect. He prescribed me Cymbalta which I am still taking. I still suffer other symptons such as loss of short term memory and sharp pains in my head and joints.

Last year, I started taking Chantix. It works great; I was able to quit smoking... but at the cost of losing my sanity. I suffer from bi-polar disorder, and just a week after beginning the drug, I spiraled into a manic spree which cost me thousands of dollars in debt, psychosis, both audial and visual hallucinations, extreme paranoia, and self mutilation followed by an extreme case of depression with suicidal ideation. For most people, Chantix works wonders, but for those with a history of severe psychological problems, Chantix could be the death. Literally. I don't know if Chantix caused my psychological demise, but it is quite uncanny how all that occurred right when I began taking the drug.

I had to be hospitalized for 4-5 days (still feeling 'disconnected'.) Husband had to miss some work. I have to put kids in day care (im a stay at home mom) because I have non-stop panic attacks. Even over a week after I stopped the meds they continue. The DR in the ER 'had never heard of such a thing'. I was suffering a non-stop panic attack, crying, a migraine (from crying) and wanted to die. I couldnt trust myself and ended up being baker acted ! I have f/u appts and my insurance expires at the end of the month! I felt 'disconnected' for about a week before going into the hospital, the few people I talked to said my words were just words, not real sentences. I am on xanax and anti-depressants now.

I have bi-polar disorder and was given chantix with my other meds. It was so bad I really wanted to kill myself. I had just been put into the hospital after jumping out of a third story burning building and breaking my back in several places. My mother left me at the hospital, alone, because of the way I acted. I was given chantix after release from the hospital and the same thing happened. No one wanted to help or be around me, I also lost rights to visit my son. Please help!!!

I could not function totally for a week and ended up in my doctor's office. I was weepy, erratic thoughts, couldn't focus, had about 2 hours sleep over the course of several days, very shakey and extremely anxious thought life was not worth living. My physician immediately confirmed that a few patients experience this when coming off Chantix. My doctor put me on an anit-depressant and I was able to return to work in a week.

I became suicidal, actually cutting my arm. I became incapable of taking care of day to day tasks due to depression and aggitation. I could not take care of my baby and I physically abused my husband. This all transpired after taking Chantix from day 4-9 and then I stopped taking it even after my doctor asked me to continue. I could have died.

I had been taking Chantix for about 4 months, I took it on and off , I started having mood swings. I was irritable, I would snap for no reason. I stopped taking the large dose and started taking one pill every other day. Everyday my mood would change. I got to the point where I didnt care anymore. I got to the point where I didnt feel like doing things around the house. I had the kind of mood if it was done it was done and if it wasnt it wasnt. As time went on I started having sucide thoughts. I wondered why I was having these thoughts. I had never had them before. My husband said all I did was holler at him. My mood swings was getting to much to bare. Many times he started to walk out. On Jan 2, 2008 I attempted suicide. I still have thoughts of it. I go see a psychiatrist today in Lynchburg Va. I suffer from depression and have for many years and have never had sucide thoughts. Chantix has really messed my life up. I have stopped taking it.

I am currently having to take 200mg of Zoloft a day, 2mg of Xanax 5 times a day and 300mg of Trazadone at night because of this.
I have missed almost all of 2007 from work. I have had several nervous breakdowns. I had a panic attack at work, in front of my bosses, employees and customers, that was a complete embarrassment.
I have come close to suicide so many times I can't even count. Before the battery of meds I am on now, I would have severe panic attacks several times a day, and I would shake so badly that I could not preform my job, or deal with customers.
I am currently under psychiatric care to help combat these conditions, and don't know whether or not I will have to be on these meds for the rest of my life or not.
I have a pretty detailed medical trail that started when taking the drug up until now. This includes my family doctor, emergency room visits and my psychiatrist. As well as many people who have witnessed what happened to me.

Now I feel that their trying to send me out for a rubber room! I am currently still taking the chantix along with a recent perscribed increase to 60 mg daily of Celexa to try and help with the depression. Prior to all this recent garbage, I have "No History" of "any" psychiatric problems or depression.

My life was going perfect. I was doing good in school, getting along with family and friends and then I started taking Chantix. At first I just felt sad all the time. I started having horrible nightmares. By the 5th day that I was taking Chantix I began to feel suicidal. I was not sure what was causing it. After taking Chantix for about 2 weeks I attempted suicide but luckily I had a friend there to stop me. I began to feel crazy and not like myself. I was pushing out friends and family. I cried all the time. I quit taking chantix about 2 months ago. I still feel not myself. I feel like there is nothing more for me and I am always sad. I know it had something to do with this medicine!

After taking Chantix, I started to feel severely unstable. I suffer from depression, but this was quite different.
I was in and out of the doctors office (psychiatrist). And then attempted suicide and went to an acute care psychiatrist unit. First attempt ever in my life. I was so distraught for such a period of time that I went to a short term facility for three months (New Horizons of Ft. Pierce FL) to help me regroup.
Since taking Chantix I have sold my Landscape business and now I am in jeopardy of losing my house.
I just was released from the SRT program Jan 3, 2008.

I have started having trouble falling to sleep at all, and if I do it's extremly light and not restorative.

Weird dreams about death as well as horrific nightmares. I'm left tired due to the trouble falling and staying asleep.

Complete memory loss from approx. 3 hours after I took the first dosage until week 2 day 4.

My anxiety has became dramatically worse as well as depression and thoughts of suicide.

Seeing Yellow or Blue lines and dots during the day and at night I can no longer safely drive. The road bounces and moves to the point where I have trouble staying on the road.

And my Urine has gone from Clear-pale yellow to brown-yellow in color.

Change in behavior to the point that I have alienated myself from my friends and family by doing uncharastic things such as unauthorized purchases while I have no memory of the transactions only the evidence of the purchase which leaves me wondering "where did that come from"

Short term memory Loss... losing everything constantly.

1 week after stopping the drug I became horribly depressed with almost constant thoughts of suicide. Seems to me if only 1 person has commited suicide as a result of taking this medication that it is 1 too many. The drug should be taken off the market. 6 women in my office took the medication, all of whom experienced some type of adverse effect and stopped the medication. Thankfully I did not kill myself, although I came close. After I reported this to my physician and figured out what the cause was and that I was not losing my mind the depression lessened, although to this day I still have flashbacks to the episodes of depression. I did email the FDA with a complaint in November of this year.
