Chantix and Heart Problems

The FDA issued a warning on June 16, 2011, regarding a potential link between the use of Chantix and heart problems in patients who have cardiovascular disease. According to the FDA's warning, a clinical trial involving 700 smokers with cardiovascular disease found that those treated with Chantix were at a higher risk of cardiovascular adverse events than patients who were treated with a placebo. Those cardiovascular events included a risk of heart attack, angina pectoris and peripheral vascular disease.

actoscase Although the FDA's warning concerned patients who already had cardiovascular disease, a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal found a link between the use of Chantix and an increased risk of cardiovascular events in patients with no history of cardiovascular disease. Those cardiovascular events include heart attack, stroke and congestive heart failure. According to the study, 52 of 4,908 patients who took Chantix suffered a serious cardiovascular event, while 27 of 3,308 patients who took a placebo suffered a serious cardiovascular event. That translates to a 72 percent increased risk for heart problems, according to researchers.

Chantix is known generically as varenicline.

Chantix and Suicide

Chantix has also been linked to an increased risk of violent outbursts and suicide attempts. Concerns about neuropsychiatric symptoms resulted in the FDA requiring a change to the Chantix label, to include a black box warning about Chantix side effects and the risk of depression, aggression and attempted suicide.

Took Chantix for a few years and had a heart attack at the age of 42. The suicide thoughts are crazy! I didn't even know why I was thinking the things I was thinking. Just nuts! This drug is horrible and people should beware of taking it.
