Zyban (bupropion) question. Has anyone prescribed zyban (bupropion) to quit smoking?

Yes. Sure, it is (was) a very common medication. If you are in il, call me. Most of the times, however, I use wellbutrin (bupropion) - less side effects, additional benefits and the same likelihood to quit. By the way, it is better to be used as a part of a "cocktail" and with a couch-like person.

Can I take zyban (bupropion) and sertraline together? I have md and want to quit smoking. I am going off sertraline as I don't feel it is working. I'm in the uk

Yes, the two are. Often prescribed together in doses not to exceed 300 mg per day. Do not stop her zoloft (sertraline) without contacting your treating physician. You may find that the zoloft (sertraline) suddenly starts working when the wellbutrin is added in. This is a common combination in which two antidepressants are used together to achieve remission from depression. In your case, you are using bupropion for a different purpose but you may be able to kill two birds with one stone by staying on both.Best wishes and congratulations on your decision to quit smoking.
