Operators of Semi Tractor Trailer Trucks as well as those that fly Planes and Air Traffic Controllers have been banned from using the prescription drug Chantix. 

The Federal Aviation Administration joined the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in banning the use of the prescription drug that helps break the habit of smoking. 

The nonprofit group concludes, “We have immediate safety concerns about the use of varenicline (Chantix) among persons operating aircraft, trains, buses and other vehicles, or in other settings where a lapse in alertness or motor control could lead to massive, serious injury.  Other examples include persons operating nuclear power reactors, high-rise construction cranes or life-sustaining medical devices.   Based on reports of sudden loss of consciousness, seizures, muscle spasms, vision disturbances, hallucinations, paranoia and psychosis, we believe varenicline may not be safe to use in these settings.”

Injuryboard and Daryl T. Dixon Law stands ready to assist any of those with claims against Drug Companies and those who are injured by Semi Tractor Trailer Trucks.
