*Update: If you or a loved one has suffered a bad reaction to Champix and you are based in the U.K., you can report it to the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) here. The more people do that the clearer the true picture will become. Protect others! Report it.*

Several times I have been asked about the options for suing Pfizer - the manufacturer of Champix Chantix - for damages over the horrific side effects some smokers taking the drug have suffered. Such claims are already under way. Lawyers in the USA and Canada are offering advice on this and this is only the beginning.
I cannot give any kind of legal advice, and I will refrain from commenting on the matter too because that is not my area of expertise. I do believe that what we are now seeing is only the tip of the iceberg though, so if you have an interest in these matters you can expect the relevant facts to be changing as time progresses. Just a few links that you might find useful to begin with, after which I advise you to use the search engines to find out more:
