Study Sees No Suicide Risk From Stop-Smoking Drugs

(HealthDay News) — People who take anti-smoking drugs have no higher risk of depression or suicide than those who use nicotine replacement therapies to help them quit smoking, according to a new study.

Health officials in the United States and some other countries have issued safety warnings that the drugs Chantix (varenicline) and Zyban (bupropion) — which work by reducing nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms — may increase the risk of suicide.
