The health risks associated with smoking are well known, and have been for many years. It is thought that those with a regular habit may see their chances of getting heart disease rise by around 24 per cent; while as many as 90 percent of lung cancer cases are thought to be the result of cigarette smoke.
There are also the other effects which smoking has on the body to consider, such as premature aging of the skin, and gum disease.
Roughly 1 in 6 adults in the UK smoke. Despite the health risks, there are various reasons why someone might find it difficult to quit. Those who live a stressful lifestyle may feel like they rely on smoking to help them get through the day.
Someone who has smoked for a long time may consider it a part of their routine, and find it tough adjusting to being a non-smoker.
Others may feel social pressure to smoke, because most of their friends and colleagues do so. Another reason why someone may finding quitting hard is because of the physical withdrawal it induces. When a person smokes and inhales nicotine, this arouses certain receptors in the brain, triggering feelings of pleasure.
In cases where someone continues to smoke, however, these receptors become used to constant stimulation, and come to depend on it. Once they are deprived of this stimulation, symptoms of withdrawal can result. These can manifest in feelings of irritability, difficulty sleeping, an increased appetite, or in a range of other ways; which can make smoking a difficult habit to stop. There are several different methods someone can employ to help them quit, such as nicotine replacement therapy gum or lozenges and e-cigarettes.
For people struggling to give up, prescription treatments can be helpful. These are designed to be used in conjunction with a programme of motivational support, and work by increasing the activity of certain chemicals in the brain. Zyban GlaxoSmithKline is one such medication. It contains the agent bupropion hydrochloride. This constituent inhibits the reuptake of two chemicals, noradrenaline and dopamine, which act as mood regulators. This enables them to work without restriction in the brain, and thereby reduces feelings of withdrawal.
Zyban tablets are prolonged release, which means they distribute their contents slowly when ingested. It reduces nicotine withdrawal symptoms and needs to be taken for a duration of several weeks. Superdrug Online Doctor does not currently offer this medication. We offer the smoking cessation treatment Champix instead, which has been proven to be more effective while causing less side effects.
View smoking cessation treatments How does Zyban work? Originally developed as an antidepressant, the active substance in Zyban was found to help smokers quit. Most smokers struggle with withdrawal symptoms when they stop smoking.
Bupropion, the medicine in Zyban, reduces withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, irritability, headaches and cravings. Why is Superdrug Online Doctor not offering Zyban? Superdrug online doctor does not currently prescribe any medication containing bupropion, as this type of medication has been found to be less effective than the alternative treatment Champix.
According to a study conducted by the pharmaceutical manufacturer Pfizer, quit smoking tablets containing bupropion are no more effective than a placebo a pill which does not contain any medication. Bupropion only increases your chances of quitting smoking as much as a placebo would but it is associated with a range of side effects, some of which can be serious.
Champix, however, has been found to significantly increase your chances of quitting smoking permanently and is less likely to cause side effects. How is Zyban taken? If you do decide to take Zyban, you need to start taking it one week before your set date for stopping smoking.
