Chantix & stroke
Skirty35 posted:
My uncle is 51 years old & has suffered a stroke while on Chantix. He had been previously given the all clear from a vascular specialist prior to starting Chantix. He never experienced any weird dreams while on the drug but began to lose function of his left hand. We took him to the ER & they confirmed the stroke after doing a CT scan. After reading everyone's posts, I think an attorney needs to be brought in to review these cases. People are taking the drug to decrease their risk of stroke from smoking but it looks like this drug is causing them!
