VA Will Warn Vet about Chantix

The Veterans Affairs Department will mail out notices to nearly 33,000 veterans who are taking the anti-smoking drug Chantix, warning them about possible side effects, including thoughts of suicide.

VA Secretary James Peake said VA doctors will continue to prescribe the drug because they are seeing no serious problems or trends with its use.
