I took it over 15 years ago, when they found it helps with smoking. After about 5-7 days of taking 150mg... when I would take a smoke, I got this weird taste in my mouth which encouraged me not to want to smoke, as the taste was soooooooo distastefull!!! Now I'm taking it and it doesn't have the same affect... 3wks later... and so far havent experienced any of the above mentioned symptoms. Would a higher dose acheive the previous anti- smoking affects ?

Probably an increase in dosage to 300mg would help. It did for me. I was one of those "social" smokers, but with my depression and anxiety, I was beginning to smoke on a regular basis. Once I went up to 300mg of the Bupropion XL (generic for Wellbutrin XL), I quit smoking totally after about a week. It may take longer for some people though. Good luck!
