I participated in a quit smoking program which began in August with nicotine patches; did pretty well, but eventually failed. Asked dr to try Wellbutrin, he put me on 100 mg - told me to stay on that for 1 month, then up it to 200 mg. It's been a little over 2 weeks and it seems like my smoking has increased. Did anyone else have this issue at first?
any advise; I have heard this with a few people the one that works the best for stop smoking deterrent is the Bupropion SR 150MG take one twice daily this is the same as the stop smoking one and have heard of many people find no relief except for this one. ASK your doctor even if they don't believe its something about the level of the drug that stays in your system..IT MUST BE THE SR AND nothing else Chuck1957
Hi, I'm on the Zyban (Wellbutrin) for giving up smoking.I don't know how your program works, but in mine, you are given a script that lasts 2 weeks. This is a stronger dosage and in that time you are meant to be down to zero cigarettes. I was then are given a maintenance pack that will last for six weeks, to take away the urge. This is my second time on the zyban and both have worked. First time I gave up for 18 months and now, I am currently 6 weeks yesterday without a cigarette. Over the hard part now. Determined due to health reasons, not to fall back. Maybe another chat to your doctor will help. A good GP, would have you in each week to chat and to motivate you to be strong. Hope this helps. Lisa
