How do I take Zyban?
Zyban comes in a tablet form and a tablet is taken once a day for 6 days, increasing on day seven to one tablet twice a day. With Zyban people continue to smoke for the first week until the medication starts to work. By the second week the nicotine dependency should have eased and you should be able to stop smoking.
The most common side effects that occur are stomach pains, indigestion, changes in taste and constipation. Some people on zyban treatment may also suffer headaches, heart palpitations or unusual dreams. However, these side effects are rare and if patients experience any such symptoms they should immediately report these to their doctor. Other possible side effects include;
- Rashes or itchiness
- Loss or incress of appetite
- Chest pains
Buying Zyban online
If you are serious about changing over to a smoke free life, you will need to complete a short free consultation online with our doctor when you buy zyban. This is a confidential process that replaces the face-to-face appointment that you would usually undergo to receive a prescription medication. The medication can be sent from our pharmacy to you once our online doctor has approved you for the treatment.
I smoked for 35 years. Pack a day. I never though I could quit. I joined a smoking cessation workshop run by a doctor and social work from the HMO I belong to. They offered an 8-week workshop and 6-month prescription of Zyban at 20% the over-the-counter cost for the drug. The first week of taking Zyban was accompanied by some side effects which I hated. (waking up early, nervous). I spoke to the workshop leaders and said I felt like quitting the drug due to the side effects. They told me to “hang on a few more days” and the side effects would disappear. They were 100% correct!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy!!!!!!!! I took Zyban for 5 months and then weaned off of it. I never have the urge for cigarettes.

The first time I took Zyban was around 2004. I was on it for a week and I was amazed how it stopped the urge to smoke BUT the side effects were awful. I experienced anxiety and what felt like deep lows. I would wake up sobbing for no reason but at least I didn’t feel like a cigarette! I’m in Australia and pretty sure that we take the same levels of 150mg twice a day.

I’m taking contrave which contains zyban. Immediately my cravings were dramatically reduced. I was completely shocked because I’ve been trying to quit for 30 years without success. I’d always get the most unbearable tension headaches and give up. Finally I asked my doctor for help and she prescribed this. It’s been almost a month now and I’ve only smoked a few times. It tastes horrible now and I’m not craving them at all now unless I get really stressed out. But when I do, I don’t enjoy it anymore. I encourage you to try it. If you get side effects reduce the dosage til your body adjusts. Increase very gradually. Hope this helps! Good luck!

I started taking Zyban 4 weeks ago. I’m on the 12 week course of treatment. I’ve been smoking 17 years (started smoking at age 11) I’m now 28. I’ve tried quitting many times with patches and the gum and even tried the vape cigs. My quit date was March 16th and I have cravings but they don’t bother me. It’s weird but it’s just like a quick thought that pops up and then you are like nope not today and its over with. The main side effect I’ve had is drowsiness. I’ve slept a lot. After I take my dose, I literally pass out and wake up hours later. Also, I feel drained, but I’m thinking these side effects may be my body going through withdrawal. I have felt a little nervousness here and there. Overall, it’s been good.

I’m taking Zyban SR 150mg twice a day. I started with once a day for 7 days on May 10 2017. So I’ve been on on it for 12 days. I have stopped smoking which is the goal for 3 days. Should I stop taking this medication soon? The side effects are overwhelming. I am flush, chest pain, bad taste in my mouth, sweats, nausea, head feels foggy, ears are pain with fullness feeling, constipated, and more. Will the side effects go away?

Hosey O’Grady –
Smoked 30 years. Took Zyban while smoking for a couple weeks and kind of just forgot that I ever smoked. Mentally it made me nauseous to even think of a cigarette. Never looked back. It’s been 20 years and the funny thing is that while I could never smoke a cigarette, ( I’ve tried a couple times just for fun and YUK ) I can occasionally smoke a cigar. Not sure why but I will say, Zyban will kill cigarette addiction. Of course you can find reasons to start again but it will be very difficult after Zyban. Worked the same for my wife. Do It !!

Here it is the 11th day and I am not interested in a cig. Even after I ate. It’s really weird because I don’t have that anxious feeling I would get if I even went for an hour without. I lit one up today just to see if the nicotine would make me feel different. You know how it does after you’ve gone a long time without a cig, at a movie or or eating etc… I felt nothing. I can’t explain how it’s working but it makes me feel like I never was a smoker. I’ve been smoking for 30 years a pack and half a day! This medicine is freaking amazing!!

Ok, so I started taking Zyban about 2 weeks before my quit date. It helped me with cravings and also the anxiety, associated with not-smoking was gone. No side effects experienced.

I had my first cigarette when I was seven years old, by the time I was 51 it had grown 35 a day . I tried patches, hypnotherapy and cold turkey, none worked. Cold turkey was the worse, it gave me pains in the stomach for 9 days in a row. I eventually went to my doctor for help and he recommended Zyban. Almost immediately it worked. Day 1 wasn’t the best, but by day 4 I had the smoking habit licked. For me it is a miracle because I always thought that I would never beat it. But Zyban saved me. That was 12 years ago, I now know that under no circumstances will I ever smoke cigarettes again. I can’ t thank the manufacturers or my doctor enough for my release of this evil addiction.
