A major issue is that depression can be part of Cocaine withdrawal and severe enough that suicidal ideation is common. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) can act the same way but is less severe. Have your doctor manage any withdrawal plan. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Really none: Have been reported that persist after the drug is stopped. There is a great deal of controversy over whether suicidal thoughts or actions are truly increased with chantix, since such thoughts/actions occur in people stopping smoking in general, and not all studies have shown this.
