Injured by Chantix?
Tampa Personal Injury Lawyers Standing Up for Injured Victims
There is an overwhelming amount of information today warning consumers about the dangers of smoking. For this reason, there are a number of products on the market that are designed to help people quit smoking and return to a healthier lifestyle. Sadly, Chantix was one of those very products meant to help people break the habit for good. Unfortunately, the product did not live up to its expectations. Instead, consumers experienced serious and life-threatening side effects that were far worse than quitting smoking on their own.

Serious Side Effects Associated with Chantix
Chantix, manufactured by Pfizer was approved by the FDA in May 2006. The popular smoking cessation drug quickly became under fire as serious side effects began to appear at an alarming rate. Since the drug was released on the market, it has become one of the most well-known drugs associated with negative side effects per the FDA’s Adverse Event reporting system.
Chantix has been associated with adverse psychological side effects including:
- Suicidal thoughts
- Abnormal behavior
In fact, in 2009 the FDA required the manufacturer to add a stronger warning label, warning consumers about the increased risk of suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Two years later, in June 2011, the FDA required that new warning about the increased risk of heart attacks and other heart conditions that are associated with taking Chantix.

Although many medications are necessary, all too often, dangerous medications are released on the market before their life-threatening side effects are truly known. Other times they are released to the public, yet the manufacturers fail to accurately warn medical professionals and consumers of the true risks associated with the drug. When this happens, innocent children and adults can become severely injured or killed as a result of such negligence. If you have been injured as a result of a dangerous drug, we strongly suggest you contact a lawyer from our firm to discuss your personal injury claim.
