I considered taking Chantix but my Dr did not recommend it for me due to my family history of suicide. I have never been suicidal but others in my family have.
It has been proven that Chantix is responsible for the deaths for many people who did not know this about this drug. I am grateful to my doctor to be in-tune with this awful side effect.
I personally know 5 people who have had relatives kill themselves while taking Chantix...not good.
I have also heard that a lot of people have great success with it. Please be aware of this side effect and if mental illness runs in your family, I would for sure not take Chantix.
