Discussions that mention bupropion

Smoking Cessation board


I've been using the 21mg patch for almost 5 weeks. One day I tried a 14mg patch and - wow - it was like PMS from hell. I was extremely moody. Another day I forgot my patch, and yelled at my daughter, made her cry. I’ll stick to my 21mg patch for another week, then step down to the 14mg.

Maybe you should talk to your doctor. Wellbutrin (generic – bupropion) is another one of the stop smoking meds. It is also an antidepressant. Something along that line might help with your moodiness.

Every one is different, and what works for one person might not work for another. The best thing you can do is discuss it with your doctor. Tell him about your moodiness. He’ll know what might be best for you.

Good luck, and hang in there.
