Comment:
After smoking for 15 years I decided to use this drug to quit. I quit smoking 5 days after starting the regimen. The first 3 days were a little stressful. I had many cravings throughout the days but they weren't intense at all and were gone in a few seconds. I ate a lot of mints and kept busy. After the 3rd day I felt fine even being around other smokers. I had no side effects to the drug and ... Show Full Comment

I never write reviews but I thought this deserved one. I was reluctant to take this it treats depression and since I have never been depressed. Finally decided to take it to quit smoking and I had no side effects while taking this whatsoever. I'm on my 4th month. I quit smoking after a week of taking it. I didn't crave cigarettes anymore. It was just the habit that you really have to kick ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
After smoking for 30 years, my doctor gave me a Zyban kit. I started taking the Zyban - one a day for the first three days, then 2 a day after that. I set my quit date for 9pm on day 8. On day 8, at 8:30pm I lit my last cigarette. My first day not smoking was not too bad, although I couldn't stop thinking about it. Day two of my quit was a piece of cake. I even drove a 30 mile trip with ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I smoked for 25 years, and gave up with Zyban. I did have side effects but they are most likely nicotine withdrawals, which are awful themselves. After two weeks I had no side effects. Zyban takes away agitation, stress and the depression associated with giving up smoking. Cravings are short, fleeting and nowhere as intense as doing it cold turkey. I've read a lot of negative reviews on Zyban ... Show Full Comment
