Both People Who Use Chantix and Zyban Successfully Quit Smoking – But Who has it Better?
It is a fact that many people choose to stop smoking at the start of a new year, along with other resolutions. Others choose to star the quitting process on a day that is memorable for some reason, but I say start right now. There are a lot of products available today that can help you with your addiction, but you can be sure that these will help a large percentage of people, but not all. Two of the most popular are Zyban and Chantix, and like any other pharmaceutical products they do have some side effects, but they are renowned for having helped many a smokers onto the road to recovery and health. Why do people choose this route to help with smoking cessation? Well there can be many reasons and some of them are to prevent the side effects and withdrawal symptoms created when there is a deficit of nicotine in the system. The body cries out for nicotine and can create havoc in the bodily systems, including, palpitations, sweats, nausea to name but a few. That does not include the gnawing, aching feeling in the pit of your stomach that the cravings produce as your seratonin levels change. So now you know some of the bad points lets look at which product can help the best.
Zyban, made by Glaxo, has been on the market and used for over 40 years. It is considered to be safe and reliable and is used regularly to help people stop smoking, although it was originally formulated to help with depression. There were some complications about 20 years ago attributed to it but the formula has been changed and it is safer to use than ever before. Zyban is effective to help stop smoking for about 3 months. However, that is a long time and time enough for a smoker to become an ex smoker.
Another renowned pharmaceutical drug, Chantix was specifically designed to stop smoking addiction. It reduces the pleasure principle in smoking and people using Chantix find that stopping smoking using this and willpower and motivation are a successful combination with an average of one fifth of people achieving their aims.
Many who do stop smoking notice they face another problem – weight gain. In fact some have connected this weight gain with the drugs Zyban and Chantix but that is not true. Weight gain can be experienced by people giving up smoking, and that is purely because their eating habits change as they increase their food intake. In some people Chantix can cause some level of depression, which is not ideal, so think carefully and weigh up the benefits before going on this course of action. As Zyban was initially made to combat depression, this is not a cause for concern with this drug. Always seek a doctors advice and read as much information as possible before exposing your body to drugs as there is little point changing one habit for a different one. Stopping smoking needn’t be a hardship but you can make it harder on yourself if you do not heed advice. Give yourself the best chance of kicking the habit for good and make sure you check out all options. This will encourage your success.
