Truckers: Don't Take Chantix

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which regulates the trucking and bus industries, says that anyone taking Chantix shouldn't be allowed to drive. The Department of Transportation has alerted the heads of its myriad sub-agencies to the Chantix study and told them to take note of its findings and recommendations.set

The study found 988 cases of Chantix causing serious health problems, including seizures and heart trouble, in the last quarter of 2007 alone. It also found possible links to seizures, dizziness, heart irregularity, diabetes and more than 100 accidents.
