Hello Storm 1975, No, they are different. Zyban is bupropion hydrochloride, which is a medicine used to help people who are addicted to nicotine to give up smoking, but is not the same as nicotine replacement therapy; however, it also helps with depression and anxiety. Celexa is an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) which also helps with depression and anxiety, but doesn't help to quit smoking. If your doctor gives you a script for zyban it may cost more, so it's better to get bupropion as it's cheaper and does the same thing. I hope this has helped you better understand?
