Reviews about Zyban.
Today in the Internet appeared a lot of articles and entire websites devoted to this drug. After all, “tablets from Smoking” sold out very readily. And for the sake of this industry, some are even ready to distort the information or, say, to keep back. For example, in many descriptions of Zyban does not even mention that it’s an antidepressant. Other authors claim that this drug is something vaguely different from its counterpart Wellbutrin, so only helps when quitting Smoking. Apparently, the purpose of these articles is to reassure the consumer that more caution applies to antidepressants.
Against this background, a lot of posts about how wonderful people have stopped Smoking, taking Zyban, cause a strong suspicion. By the way, there are a lot of disappointed reviews:
– Had heard, had read. Bought this Zyban on the full rate cut… As smoked and smoke.
I wonder how attitudes and expectations affect one’s feelings:
– After drinking the first pill Zyban, could no longer Smoking. The taste and smell of tobacco caused terrible retching. Two weeks taking the tablets and did not smoke.
It is clear that such effects do not involve medication and are fully within the field of psychosomatic medicine.
But the reviews for the medicine patients who had the treatment of depression:
– Very sleepy and hard to Wake up in the morning. Eyes hurt. As the antidepressant has worked in a complex scheme with other drugs.
– Zyban did not help, but Wellbutrin went very well. Generally, doctors say that we should not invent, and it is necessary to drink Wellbutrin.
Indeed, if you are going to quit Smoking and already know (or suspect) that this process will be painful for your nervous system – contact your physician (therapist), who will select supporting course. But do not grasp to take Zyban or any other antidepressant, relying on persuasion of people, those who simply want to sell you the drug for the course.
