Veterans Chantix Information

            On June 17, 2008, ABC News reported on a story wherein veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder are being recruited for government testing on the prescription drug Chantix.  In some cases, those who were recruited were paid $30 per month. 

            The United States Food and Drug Administration issued an Early Communication to the public and health care providers on November 20, 2007 that they were evaluating “…adverse event reports on Chantix related to changes in behavior, agitation, depressed mood, suicidal ideation, and actual suicidal behavior…”  Tragically, the Veterans’ Administration did not issue a letter to the veterans involved until February 29, 2008.    

            This comes mere months after news that some of  our veterans are receiving care in facilities which are dirty and animal infested.  Surely, they deserve much better than they are getting. 

            If you or someone you love has been a victim of the neglect from the Veterans Administration, you don’t need to go through this alone.  I would like to invite you to visit my website at  Feel free to fill out an online consultation form or engage in a live chat.  Once again, the website is  Don’t wait.
