- Attempted Suicide
- Skin Reactions
- Accident or Injury
Chantix (varenicline tartrate) is sold by Pfizer as a smoking cessation drug to help ease the side effects of nicotine withdrawal and help people permanently stop smoking. It was approved by the FDA in May 2006, and it has quickly become a popular drug among individuals attempting to improve their overall health by kicking their nicotine addition.
Although the manufacturer introduced the medication with hopes that it would become a blockbuster prescription drug, Chantix problems began to surface at an alarming rate. Since it was first approved, Chantix has become one of the drugs most associated with severe adverse events according to the FDA’s Adverse Event reporting system.
The active ingredient in Chantix acts on the brain, which has led to a number of problems and psychological side effects, which the manufacturer initially failed to adequately research or warn about.
In 2009, the FDA required Pfizer to add stronger information to the warning label about a possible increased risk of suicide, suicidal thoughts and abnormal behavior from Chantix. However, lawsuits are also being reviewed for a number of other Chantix problems that have caused severe injury or death for a number of users.
In June 2011, the FDA required new warnings about an increased risk of heart attacks and other heart problems with Chantix. Although Pfizer had access to information that may have demonstrated this risk earlier, they failed to adequately research the medication or warn consumers and the medical community.
CHANTIX CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS
Individual cases and potential Chantix class action suits are being reviewed as a result of Pfizer’s failure to properly warn consumers and investigate problems associated with their medication. Pfizer’s actions seem to indicate that the company is primarily concerned with protecting the potential profits, even at the expense of the health of consumers who are trying to quit smoking to prolong their lives.
