Just to add, my brother had horrible side effects with Chantix and drinking. He blacked out twice, once at the table during dinner at a fancy establishment – once while driving. Be safe and watch the people carefully that you love and are taking Chantix.

Dear Anonymous,

Passing out is such a vague term. Syncope (= loss of postural tone ), seizures, disorientation or transient ischemic attack (=TIA) are all possibilities. All of these are rare on Chantix.

Did you brother have too much to drink maybe? Alcohol use and Chantix is not recommended because Chantix can also cause temporary drowsiness, dizziness and vision changes especially when combined with alcohol use.
