Bupropion is a med you take to reduce your craving for tobacco.it does not contain nicotine and does not help you quit smoking in the same way that nicotine replacement therapy does. But like other meds, it decreases cravings and withdrawal symptoms.it is approved for use in people who smoke 10 or more cigarettes a day and are at least 18 years.
How to use: 1 to 2 weeks before you quit smoking. This builds up the level of medicine in your body. You take bupropion for 7 to 12 weeks after you stop using tobacco. You can take it for as long as 6 months to a year
Using bupropion with nicotine replacement therapy (such as nicotine patches, gum, or inhaler) may increase your chances of success.
