My husband who is newly diagnosed came home today asking me to google chantix and MS. A costumer mentioned to him that a friend of his wife's (it's always a friend of a friend of a cousin's friend, isnt it? lol) said they "caught" MS from Chantix, that her DOCTOR told her she caught it from chantix. Well, my husband took chantix about 4 years ago in an attempt to stop smoking. I don't believe there is any correlation, but, does anyone have any thoughts on this? He was thinking of using it again as he started smoking again about a year after and of course now wants to stop for good and embrace the OMS lifestyle since diagnosis in march, but it is difficult for him. Thoughts??
I'd say that the smoking itself played a role in the development of your husbands MS. All the more reason to stop and adopt a healthy lifestyle.
