I have read a few articles on problems with the smoking cessation drug Chantix causing suicidal thoughts, today I did a bit more research and found this site: Chantix Side Effects and was amazed to see it can also cause Jekyll and Hyde like behavior. Interesting - my husband is taking Chantix (2 weeks without a cig now) and Friday night my husband was acting like a raving lunatic which is out of character even for him, and now he is acting like a lovesick puppy which is also out of character.
I have to wonder - is it the Chantix? Maybe he doesn't need a higher dose of his mood altering drug? Maybe he just needs to get off the Chantix Crazy Train?
I think I'll keep a close eye on him for more crazy personality swings before I say anything. I definitely don't think he's acting at all suicidal BUT he has been acting somewhat strange for sure.
