In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

  • Zyban Overview

    Zyban is used in combination with a stop-smoking program (such as a support group, counseling) to help you quit smoking. Bupropion can decrease your nicotine withdrawal symptoms (e.g., irritability, anxiety, restlessness) and your urge to smoke. Quitting smoking decreases your risk of heart and lung disease, as well as cancer. Zyban belongs to a class of medications known as antidepressants. It is not known exactly how bupropion works to reduce smoking urges. It may work by restoring the balance of certain natural chemicals (neurotransmitters) in the brain. Discuss the risks and benefits of Zyban, as well as other ways to quit smoking (such as nicotine replacement treatment), with your doctor.

  • Zyban Warnings

    Bupropion is an antidepressant used to treat a variety of conditions, including depression, other mental/mood disorders, and smoking cessation. Antidepressants can help prevent suicidal thoughts/attempts and provide other important benefits. However, studies have shown that a small number of people (especially people younger than 25) who take antidepressants for any condition may experience new or worsening depression, other mental/mood symptoms, or suicidal thoughts/attempts. Therefore, it is very important to talk with the doctor about the risks and benefits of antidepressant medication, even if treatment is not for a mental/mood condition. Tell the doctor right away if you notice new or worsening depression/other psychiatric conditions, unusual behavior changes (including possible suicidal thoughts/attempts), or other mental/mood changes (including new/worsening anxiety, panic attacks, trouble sleeping, irritability, hostile/angry feelings, impulsive actions, severe restlessness, very rapid speech). Be especially watchful for these symptoms when a new antidepressant is started or when the dose is changed. If you are using bupropion to quit smoking, stop taking bupropion and contact your doctor right away if you experience any of the symptoms listed above. Tell your doctor right away if you have any of these symptoms after stopping treatment.

  • How to Use Zyban

    Read the Medication Guide and, if available, the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using bupropion and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions regarding the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Take Zyban by mouth, usually twice daily with or without food. If stomach upset occurs, take with food. It is important to take your doses at least 8 hours apart or as directed by your doctor to decrease your risk of seizure. You may have trouble sleeping when you start taking Zyban. Do not take your evening dose too close to bedtime. Do not crush or chew Zyban. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects, including seizures. Also, do not split the tablets unless they have a score line and your doctor or pharmacist tells you to do so. Swallow the whole or split tablet without crushing or chewing. Your Dosage of Zyban is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Your dose may be slowly increased to limit side effects. Do not take more or less medication than prescribed. Do not take more than 150 milligrams in a single dose. Do not take more than 300 milligrams per day. Taking more than the recommended dose of Zyban may increase your risk of having a seizure. It is recommended that you do not try to quit smoking until you have been taking bupropion for 1 week so that the drug can reach a high enough level in your blood. Set a date for quitting, and stop smoking sometime in the second week of taking the drug. If necessary, Zyban may be combined with nicotine patches or gum to help you quit smoking. Ask your doctor for more information. The combination of nicotine and Zyban may increase your blood pressure. Your doctor may need to monitor your blood pressure closely. Do not smoke at any time if using any nicotine products with Zyban. Too much nicotine can cause serious side effects. Use Zyban regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. Tell your doctor if you are not able to stop smoking after 7 to 12 weeks on Zyban.

  • Zyban Precautions

    See also the How to Use and Warnings section. Before taking bupropion, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Zyban may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Zyban, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,seizures or conditions that increase your risk of seizures (including brain/head injury, brain tumors, arteriovenous malformation, eating disorders such as bulimia/anorexia nervosa), alcohol/drug dependence, diabetes, heart disease (e.g., congestive heart failure, recent heart attack), high blood pressure, kidney problems, liver problems (e.g., cirrhosis), mental/mood disorders (e.g., bipolar disorder, thoughts of suicide), personal or family history of glaucoma (angle-closure type). Zyban should not be used if you are suddenly stopping regular use of sedatives (including benzodiazepines such as lorazepam), drugs used to treat seizures, or alcohol. Doing so may increase your risk of seizures. Zyban may make you dizzy or drowsy or blur your vision. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness or clear vision until you can do it safely. Avoid alcoholic beverages. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis). Alcohol may also increase your risk of seizures. Do not take this medicine with any other product that contains bupropion (e.g., antidepressants) since large doses of bupropion are more likely to cause seizures. Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of Zyban, especially dizziness and memory loss. Dizziness can increase the risk of falling. During pregnancy, Zyban should be used only when clearly needed. Behavioral therapy and stop-smoking education is preferred for pregnant women who desire to stop smoking. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Zyban passes into breast milk and may have undesirable effects on a nursing infant. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

  • Zyban Misdose

    If you miss a dose of Zyban, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.

  • Zyban Interactions

    See also Precautions section. Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval.codeine, pimozide, tamoxifen. Taking MAO inhibitors with Zyban may cause a serious (possibly fatal) drug interaction. Avoid taking MAO inhibitors (isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue, moclobemide, phenelzine, procarbazine, rasagiline, safinamide, selegiline, tranylcypromine) during treatment with Zyban. Most MAO inhibitors should also not be taken for two weeks before and after treatment with Zyban. Ask your doctor when to start or stop taking Zyban. Zyban may interfere with certain medical/laboratory tests (including brain scan for Parkinson's disease, urine screening for amphetamines), possibly causing false results. Tell laboratory personnel and all your doctors you use Zyban.

  • Zyban Side Effects

    What are Zyban side effects?

    Side effects are physical, mental or emotional symptoms which occur in addition to or outside of the desired effect of a therapeutic treatment such as an over-the-counter or prescribed drug or medication. Side effects from Zyban may occur at the beginning or at the end of treatment and may also depend on the length of time an individual remains on the treatment. Side effects, also known as adverse effects, are generally more likely to occur when starting treatment. Individuals may also experience side effects from Zyban as a result of an interaction with other medications.

    Side Effects of Zyban

    The side effects of Zyban may vary in number and intensity for many different reasons. Factors such as age, weight, gender and ethnicity may influence the side effects of Zyban. Also, an individual’s state of general physical health and seriousness of the disease or illness as well as an increase or decrease in dosage may lead to side effects. Further, side effects from Zyban may also occur as a result of an interaction with certain herbal supplements, foods or drinks.

    Prescription drug side effects can be serious and may cause patients to stop the treatment. However, when side effects from the use of a prescription drug, such as Zyban, do occur a patient should consult their physician. A physician may prescribe an additional treatment in order to control the symptoms or an adjustment in the dosage may be made. In addition, changes to diet, exercise or other lifestyle activities may help to lessen the side effects of Zyban.

    By understanding side effects and the factors which may influence the occurrence of side effects patients are empowered to take an active role in their care. Patients who have specific questions about the side effects of Zyban, or any other medication, should contact their physician.
