Newsclip®: [Health] EU lifts suicide warning on Champix | SBS News

"Europe's main drug regulator has lifted a seven-year-old warning about possible suicidal risks from Champix, Pfizer's smoking-cessation pill. The European Medicines Agency's ruling could boost sales of Champix, also known as Chantix, by reassuring doctors and would-be ex-smokers that the prescription medicine doesn't have dangerous psychiatric side effects. The EMA's decision, announced on Monday by New York-based Pfizer, comes after an 8144-patient, 16-country study found users had no elevated risk of suicides, suicide attempts or suicidal thoughts.",
