Bupropion for tobacco addiction.
Hello everyone. K so here's my situation: I've been a heavy smoker for nearly 10 years now. I've regretted that first cigarette ever since I dropped the self-destructive attitude that led me to it, and I'm regretting it more every passing day since it's began to affect my health, and from experience I know it gets real ugly by the end. I brought it up with my psychiatrist and she recommended this Bupropion drug. I read a bit about it and some of the contraindications and side-effects kinda scared the crap out of me (for example increase of suicidal ideation which I've lived with for many years; there are other worrisome ones). It ain't cheap either, so that's another thing, don't wanna spend on something that might bring more bad than good. On the other hand it being used as antidepressant means it's possible it could get me out of the funks I dive into from time to time.
In short, has anyone tried this one, either for depression or to quit smoking? What's been your experience, be it positive or negative?
