heart rate and blood flow to the skeletal system. While the prescribing information for Zyban states a gradual taper is not necessary, 30% of patients have shown withdrawal symptoms do occur that include anxiety,
irritability, aggression, mania, uncontrolled movements and mania. Abruptly or rapidly stopping Zyban is not recommended due to the withdrawal syndrome. A gradual taper is advise.

Zyban history and info
Zyban was unsuccessfully marketed as an antidepressant but was found to be effective as a smoking cessation aid. By 2006 it was the fourth-most prescribed antidepressant in the United States.
Wellbutrin (Zyban) was released in 1986 with dosage recommendations of 400-600mg, however a significant incidence of seizures caused the drug to be removed the same year. Wellbutrin (Zyban) was reintroduced in 1989 with a maximum recommended dose of 450mg/day. The FDA approved the sustained-release formulation in 1996 called Wellbutrin SR that required twice a day dosing. In 2003 the FDA approved another sustained release formulation called Wellbutrin XL that called for once a day dosing. GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals advises that Wellubtin (Zyban) should not be prescribed to patients with epilepsy or other conditions that lower the seizure threshold.
There is evidence of neuropsychiatric symptoms associated with Zyban (Wellbutrin) in patients with depression, including hallucinations, psychosis, delusions, paranoia, confusion and disturbances in concentration. These side effects
are also common with stimulant medications. In addition, the prescribing information lists hypertension, sometimes severe, was observed in patients both with and without pre-existing hypertension. There have been reports of
a false-positive urine test for amphetamine use in persons taking Wellbutrin (Bupropion).
