In past issues, we have reported on Chantix, a Pfizer drug, which is prescribed to help people stop smoking. The FDA first warned Chantix users in November of 2007 that an ongoing safety review was being conducted showing an increase in suicidal thoughts and suicidal behavior. Subsequently, the FDA required an additional update to the label in early 2008 involving serious neuropsychiatric symptoms. Since that time, the Federal Aviation Administration has banned pilots and flight controllers from using Chantix and the label now includes a medication guide warning users that they may have changes in behavior while taking Chantix. Nobody in my opinion should take Chantix, but many folks are still doing so in an attempt to stop smoking. We continue to investigate Chantix cases involving suicide or attempted suicide.
