  • The first few hours I think about it but never get the urge to, so I decide not to think about it-and hours turned to days turned weeks and before I knew it Summer was here-I decided to stay on the Wellbutrin XL just in case-Summer means vacation-barbeques

      I know how hard it is to stop smoking. I have done it so many times but never succeeded until I started taking Wellbutrin XL. I had tried countless times to quit but was never able to stick it out.

      I tried the gum, the patches and the lozenges, all without success. In March of 2003 I went to my family doctor and asked her to help me.

      She suggested I go on the anti-depressant Wellbutrin XL. Little know


      fact: Wellbutrin XL is the medication Bupropion HCI the same medication as Zyban (the prescription medication to stop smoking)Now I don’t know about other medical coverages other than my own, but mine would not cover a prescription for Zyban.

      So I started the Wellbutrin in the end of March 2003. You have to start it about 6 weeks before the actual stopping of smoking.

      So I’m taking the pills, I have no side effects, I maybe feel the slightest ...


      • less edgey which is a good thing. May 10 I have my last cigarette waiting in the car for my son to finish bowling with his league.

        I go home do my normal things and never have the urge to smoke. The first few hours I think about it but never get the urge to, so I decide not to think about it-and hours turned to days turned weeks and before I knew it Summer was here-I decided to

        stay on the Wellbutrin XL just in case-Summer means vacation-barbeques.

        I stay on until September when I go back to my dr and she weans me off the pills. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT-NEVER STOP TAKING ANTI-DEPRESSANTS ON YOUR OWN.

        YOU MUST BE UNDER A DR CARE AND YOU MUST GRADUALLY STOP TAKING THEM. I stop the WEllbutrin with no problems and here I am going on 4 years SMOKE FREE.

        I stopped smoking with minimal weight gain and no urges.
