Smoking and Tobacco
Length of time I should take Wellbutrin?
I am 27 and have been taking Wellbutrin for 5 weeks, and smoke free for 4. How long should I continue taking the medication for optimal benefits. I quit one other time without medication and started smoking after 6 months.
Zyban is usually prescribed for 7-12 weeks; however, some patients require longer durations such as 6 months. Please contact your health professional for advice.
