Chantix Lawsuit

There are times I'm leery of taking prescription medication. You just never know how your body will react to taking them. That's why it didn't surprise me to learn that in July 2009, the FDA issued a black box warning for Chantix. This is the agencies strongest warning. It was added due to public reports of side effects including depression, suicidal thoughts and suicidal actions. It's scary to think and read about this Chantix lawsuit, but at least they have warnings out there for people to be aware of. I know I'll be looking twice when it comes to medications...just to make sure there aren't any warnings.
