  1. Is there any type of antidote for this Chantix nightmare? I am desperate. My list grows by the year, I never considered any side effects to be permanent. After Several years of a downhill spiral I have realized through frustrated research that it is all linked back to the Chantix I took in 2007. Chantix gave me severe ADD, I was diagnosed at 40 almost 2 years after taking Chantix, and incidently, I had been evaluated by a mental health professional before taking Chantix and was not diagnosed with ADD.

    Currently I have experienced or am experiencing about 30 ailments listed on a Chantix sheet I found online. Being suicidal is whats going to kill me though, I can’t shake it and I’m just getting too tired to fight it. I need a miracle to counteract the ‘miracle drug’.

  2. Hello Dana,

    I am not your doctor and you are not my patient but I am sorry you are having such a hard time. However, I do not believe you can really blame all these symptoms on one drug. Not even Chantix.
