  • From this study (10 months ago):

  • I already was diagnosed with high anxiety and PTSD my doctor and myself thought it would be safe due to me being on it short term. But it made these symptoms worse and gave me more symptoms, i.e. the hallucinations and confusion. I stopped the Chantix a year ago and still cannot pick up a book to read. Some of my other symptoms I did not put on here due to me already being diagnosed with menopause.
