Zyban - effects on your skin and sleeping problems?
Dear CyberDoc,

I am a smoker and my doctor gave me a prescription for Zyban. I want to know how Zyban works exactly and also if it will have any effect on my sleeping patterns and if it will effect my skin - I sometimes suffer with acne.

Kind regards,

Sarah, it works on the chemicals in your brain causing you not to have cravings when you stop smoking. It may cause a bit of insomnia, but it shouldn’t affect your brain. Good luck and please let me know if you have more questions.
