Did Champix cause suicide?

21st January 2008

The widow of a man who committed suicide has said the drug Champix, prescribed to help smokers quit cigarettes, could have "played a part" in his death.

Wayne Marshall killed himself soon after he completed a 13-week course of the drug. Champix has been linked to depression. A spokesman for the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency said the drug, manufactured by Pfizer, was "being closely monitored".
