Description

What is Zyban?

Zyban is the brand name for the generic drug bupropion hydrochloride. It is a prescription drug for smoking cessation.

It was originally marketed as an antidepressant under the brand name Wellbutrin. Then it became clear that bupropion was an effective means of smoking cessation. Smokers who used it to treat depression found that they also lost interest in smoking. People who had no intention of quitting the cigarettes found that they could quit relatively easily.

Later, bupropion hydrochloride was branded Zyban, and in 1997, the US FDA approved it as a smoking cessation aid. In combination with nicotine substitutes, the chance of long-term success increases.

Although this medication was developed as an anti-depressant, you don't have to have depression to use it as a smoking cessation aid.

 

How does Zyban work?

It is not entirely clear how Zyban works. We do know that it changes brain chemistry in such a way that nicotine has less effect. The result is a decreased interest in smoking and nicotine withdrawal symptoms are minimized.

How should I take Zyban?

The recommended dose as an aid to smoking cessation is 150 mg per day for 3 days, followed by 150 mg twice a day. It is best that you start taking bupropion at least a week before you stop smoking. Bupropion treatment usually takes 7 to 12 weeks.

If you need multiple doses each day, make sure you leave at least 8 hours between doses. It is very important that bupropion tablets are swallowed whole and not chewed, broken or crushed. Bupropion can be taken with food or on an empty stomach.

What do I have to take into account?
