chantix side effects

my husband has been taking the chantix for a couple of weeks, and experiences his body jolting every few minutes. involuntary movements, while he is sleeping. is that something to do with the withdrawls?

The FDA is starting to relook at all the side effects of Chantix. Call a doctor.

I heard on TV a few months ago that the number of side effects some very serious is being looked at by the FDA.
I also have seen on TV a commercial by a lawyer who says if you have a loved one ill or dead and they were taking Chantix please call this ####.
I have no idea if this drug is dangerious or not but when I was offered it when it first came out I said no after reading the side effects.
