    They are two totally different drugs.

     

    Chantix is available by prescription only. It is different from other products on the market because it works to specifically stop nicotine addiction in the brain. Like other products, though, counseling or some form of support is recommended in addition to taking this medication. Any drug regardless of how good it is will produce some withdrawal symptoms and this is where support from friends, family and co-workers comes in. find a support group before you start taking the drug and watch out for any side effects.

     

    Wellbutrin is a prescription medication licensed for several uses, including treating depression, treating seasonal affective disorder, and helping with smoking cessation. However, not all forms of the medicine are approved for smoking cessation.

     

     

    Note on Wellbutrin

     

    Replacement Therapies Are Not So Effective

    There have been replacement therapies accessible for many years along with the prescription drug bupropion, sold under the brand of Wellbutrin and originally marketed as an anti-depressant. After showing positive benefits to help people stop smoking it was remarketed under the name of Zyban as a quit-smoking drug. While many are interested about this stop smoking drug there is no assurance that it will help everyone.
