Date: 13th February 2008
According to a revelation by New York Magazine writer Derek de Koff, while using the anti-smoking drug Chantix to get rid of smoking addiction, discovered some Chantix side-effects that were reportedly vivid Chantix nightmares. The strange dreams experienced by Derek de Koff were like he was having a lucid dream and while he was asleep another part of him was on guard. He also reportedly experienced some "self-destructive fantasies" such as a willingness to jump down in front of a tour bus, a desire to put his head through a monitor et al after administering Chantix.
However, according to the details provided by the writer, it also became known that as soon as Chantix usage made him victim to a plethora of strange dreams, he stopped interacting with people and also avoided to venture out of his home. Altogether, according to the writer's revelation, depression induced by Chantix had overcome him to such an extent that he started drinking occasionally and also began contemplating suicide.
The writer, Derek de Koff revealed all these tragic Chantix experiences in a specific article titled "My Brain on Chantix," and altogether in the article, he also made it apparent that before his strange, personal Chantix experiences, he was not at all convinced about tales such as Chantix leading to the disastrous shooting death of the musician Carter Albrecht.
