im planning on quitting smoking soon'ish and one method i know is quite effective is zyban. I got told however zyban is actually an antidepressant which showed some interesting results on the smoking behaviour of the patient and thus got released as an antismoking pill. He also said it didnt really work all that well as an antidepressant but i cant confirm that. Here's what i found online about zyban : DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Bupropion is an antidepressant medication that affects chemicals within the brain that nerves use to send messages to each other. These chemical messengers are called neurotransmitters. The neurotransmitters that are released by nerves are taken up again by the nerves that release them for reuse. (This is referred to as reuptake.) Many experts believe that [/i]depression is caused by an imbalance among the amounts of neurotransmitters that are released. Bupropion is unrelated to other antidepressants. It works by inhibiting the reuptake of dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine, an action which results in more dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine to transmit messages to other nerves. Bupropion is unique in that its major effect is on dopamine, an effect which is not shared by the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs (e.g. paroxetine, Paxil; fluoxetine, Prozac;sertraline, Zoloft) or the tricyclic antidepressants or TCAs (e.g. amitriptyline, Elavil; imipramine, Tofranil; desipramine, Norpramin). My guess is anyone taking these pills should really stay of MDMA as it seems to work in the same area of the brain . Ive read somewhere dopamine is what damages the serotone receptors after XTC has made you brain use up a far larger then usual release of seretone . Zyban increases the amount of dopamine in your brain so logicly it would increase the damage . So if anyone here is taking zyban or planning to take it , remember to not drop while your doing it. if my assumptions are incorrect please feel free to correct me . I'm still trying to understand the workings of XTC .
