I cut down from a pack a day for the last 28 years to 5-10 a day after my attempt to quit with hypnosis. The hypnosis worked for about 2 months then I started up again slowly. I just started on bupropion 100mg, the first 5 days only one pill. Now on day 7 and taking 2 pills. I seem to be smoking more because I don't seem to get the buzz or the satisfaction from it anymore. Has anyone else had this experience and did it change over time? I did notice m cigs don't taste very goon anymore. I've always loved the menthol hit but barely taste it anymore.
Hello Lisa508. My son tried it some years ago and it simply did not help him. He ended up as I did, nicorette chewing gum/lozenges. It worked. It has been over 3 years for me and almost 5 years for him. (not smoking) Best of wishes to you, pledge
I had the same thing happen to me when I first started on 75 mg. I didn't feel 'satisfied' after smoking so smoked more but the taste was different. I then increased to two pills a day and the desire to smoke was most definitely taken away... I am smoking about 5 cigarettes and was smoking over 20 a day... my doc is going to increase me to three pills a day next week so will post the results...
Bupropion didn't work well for me, before I took it I was smoking 1/2 pack a day, but the anxiety I had from the med, increased my smoking to almost 2 packs a day. I quit taking it
