In June 07 I started taking Chantix to quit smoking. In November 07 I was diagnosed with diabetes. There is no history of diabetes in my family, I don't fit the stereo typical profile of a diabetic (I'm 45, 5'5", 150 lbs., eat healthy & exercise) & I've been seeing the same physician for 12 years & the same OB/GYN for 12 years as well. In that time, neither physician has ever considered me even borderline diabetic. My primary physician was shocked as to how this could happen so rapidly & without any indication or warning signs. Then 2 days ago I learned that Chantix can cause diabetes, as well as a multitude of other problems. I've contacted 2 class action law firms, but since I haven't attempted suicide & been hospitalized, I presently have no recourse. Has anyone else experienced the same or other serious medical problems?
