Brief Answer:
Chantix adverse effects to consider.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

If it wasn't a seizure, it is probably that chantix use may have caused some adverse effects.

Some people may experience psychiatric symptoms such as behavioral changes, agitation, depressed mood, and suicidal behavior while using Chantix.

If the tests were negative about substance abuse and there was no seizure, the cause of the suspected dui is related probably to Chantix use adverse effects.

It is possible also that other drugs that you use to trigger a seizure.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Take care.
