Newbie here. I started taking Bupropion HCL XL 150 mg once a day. Started 1/8/13. Taken it for 3 weeks did not work. Went back to doctor 4/24/13 he increased to 2 times a day.Dry mouth I exexperience but still smoking BUT not as much SOMETIMES. One day I can smoke a pack and next day I don't desire it light up 2 puffs throw it out. I felt a decreased of appetite is this normal? When will be the effective period it should take full affect? So anxious to quit before Mother's Day 2013.
Hello ChaCha64. A son of ours used Bupropion just over 12 years ago to stop smoking and it worked for him. (his dose was 300mg). In his case it took close to 4 months. He was not a heavy smoker per say. Less than a pack on any give day. As to its effectiveness that will vary from one individual to another. Best of health to you, pledge
