new warnings about Chantix and an increased risk of heart troubles in patients with heart disease

Please see updated FDA safety information regarding the risk of cardiovascular events with Chantix (varenicline).

People will worry about new warnings about Chantix and an increased risk of heart troubles in patients with heart disease.

FDA says there MIGHT be a higher risk...but this is controversial. The increase in heart risk is likely to be small...if it exists at all.

Chantix (varenicline) is still a good smoking cessation option...and is FAR less dangerous than continuing to smoke.
