Chantix Side Effects Help It Top Ignominious List
By John Curran
Few patients who suffer from adverse side effects end up reporting it to the federal Food and Drug Administration. So it is news when the agency gets hundreds of reports about Chantix suicidal thoughts side effects and other related conditions. The sheer number of complaints has led to manufacturer Pfizer earning a less-than-desired award.
Along with the blood-thinner Pradaxa, Chantix violent thoughts side effects have represented more than one-third of the complaints over prescription drugs over the past four years. All drugs on the market have seen the number of complaints double over that same time period. It is unclear what the overall growth should be attributed to, but the share of adverse conditions held by Chantix suicidal thoughts side effects victims is pretty remarkable.
It comes as the company is fighting on numerous fronts against Chantix multi-district litigation (MDL) attorneys. Pfizer has already settled one case just this week. However, there are more than 2,000 plaintiffs facing off against Pfizer in Alabama courtrooms. Chantix class action lawsuit lawyers are dealing with company attorneys who argue that in the modern era, witnesses should not have to travel more than 100 miles to testify.
Yet the Pfizer legal team is still happy to provide testimony in some form, when it suits them. They recently asked for a stay in the case, arguing that a recent company-sponsored study on Chantix depression side effects should be reviewed by both sides. The judge denied that claim, and the case is moving forward over the next several days.
It is unclear whether or not the executives will be compelled to testify, but the judge, a European emigre, is likely to take a dim view of the hardships of traveling by corporate jet for testimony.
