  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I am currently under the care of both a psychiatrist and a therapist due to aggresive thoughts and behaviors towards authority figures, nearly all work related. It has been approximately three years since taking chantix. The aggressive tendencies began while taking the drug. I was prescribed and quit smoking in one month, but relapsed and took chantix for five or six more months with a two month break after the first time. I have a family history of and personal history of serious emotional problems. Are there any other reports of long term aggresive behaviors?
