Champix is a very effective smoking cessation treatment option. However, in some patients panic/anxiety were worsened by the used of this medicine and its use should best be discussed with your husband's doctor. Similarly, although it is uncommon for champix to have an effect on blood pressure, the doctor should still give the use of Champix a "thumbs-up" first.

All the best!
