What is Zyban?

Zyban is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. Zyban sustained release tablets are an aminoketone agent used as a smoking cessation treatment. Zyban helps to reduce cravings and other withdrawal effects when you stop smoking.

What doses of Zyban are available?

Zyban is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 150mg.

You may have nicotine withdrawal symptoms when you stop smoking. Symptoms include increased appetite, weight gain, trouble sleeping, difficulty concentrating, slower heart rate, urge to smoke, anxiety, restlessness, depression, anger, frustration, or irritation. Smoking cessation may also cause new or worsening mental health problems. If necessary, you may take Zyban with nicotine replacement therapy such as nicotine patches or gum to help you quit smoking.

Stopping Zyban treatment suddenly can cause unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
