Zyban - Quiting Smoking

Zyban is a drug called buproprian hydrochloride, also known as wellbutrin & wellbutrin sr. I am not an advocate to taking or recommending any drug treatment & only include it within the web site to provide a more thorough & complete picture. Also the drug may be beneficial to a few people who specifically suffer from depression during the smoking cessation period.

It has been found that people taking the drug simply lose interest in smoking & as a result find it easier to give up completely. Success is said to be twice that of a placebo.

As with most drugs it is not without side effects. These can include insomnia & dry mouth. Those people with a history of eating disorders, seizures or cirrhosis of the liver are advised to keep clear of the drug.

As with any drug treatment you should consult your GP before starting the procedure.
