Smoking and Tobacco

Regarding Wellbutrin

05/17/2007

Question:

I currently smoke black and mild cigars. Would medicines such as Wellbutrin have any effect?

Answer:

Thank you for your question.

Wellbutrin and Zyban are both brand names for a single drug called bupropion.  Bupropion has been shown to be an effective antidepressant. It is also used to help patients quit smoking. 

Bupropion may be able to help you quit smoking. Talk with your doctor to see if it would be a good fit for you.

Good Luck !
