The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning July 1 that two stop-smoking drugs can have serious side effects, namely suicide.
Chantix, made by Pfizer, and Zyban, made by GlaxoSmithKline, will now carry the FDA’s most serious black box caution, warning about the potential for suicidal thoughts and suicide while taking these drugs.
Zyban is another name for Wellbutrin, a psychiatric drug prescribed for “depression.”
Recognize that the real problem is that psychiatrists fraudulently diagnose life’s problems as an “illness”, and stigmatize unwanted behavior like smoking as a “disease.” Psychiatry’s stigmatizing labels, programs and treatments are harmful junk science; their diagnoses of “mental disorders” are a hoax – unscientific, fraudulent and harmful. All psychiatric treatments, not just psychiatric drugs, are dangerous.
