Ways to Quit Smoking - Medications (Prescription Drugs)

Medications in the form of prescription drugs offer a nicotine-free way to quit smoking. Typical drugs available include Zyban (also referred to as Wellbutrin) and Chantix, both of which require a doctor's prescription.



How Do They Work?

These products are designed to stimulate the same nerve centers in the brain as nicotine. They work in a similar way to nicotine replacement products by gradually reducing the dosage until the physical addiction is cured.


Are They Successful?

Like the nicotine patch you need to take these medications anywhere from 7 to 12 weeks for them to be effective. At this point you should be cured of the nicotine craving, and you won't feel the desire for a cigarette. However the smoking 'habit' will still be there and many people experience the mental need for a smoke in certain situations.


Are There Any Side Effects?

Some people may experience one or more of the following side effects:

  • nausea

  • sleep disturbance

  • constipation

  • vomiting

  • Dry Mouth (In the case of Zyban)
