Our expert says:
Congratulations, I know it is not easy to stop smoking! The side effects of Zyban can include migraine, high blood pressure, hearing loss and nose bleeds, so please discuss with your doctor - if possible I think you may need to stop the Zyban or reduce the dosage. It takes about 10 days to 2 weeks for the nicotine to wash out of your system so you should not get withdrawal symptoms anymore. Try to avoid too much coffee or chocolate (or other things containing caffeine like Coke and Redbull) for another week or so as this may increase your cravings for sigarettes. Rather drink decaf coffee, rooibos tea or other types of cooldrinks if possible.
