Zyban - emotional!
I recently went off the pill and onto the 2 mnth injection and I am busy taking Zyban - could this change my emotions?
I have stopped smoking! Zyban has really worked like a dream in that regard, but I am feeling so emotional and sad etc.

This is only my 3rd week of taking Zyban - and a month on the injection. Should I just continue with all this? Wait to see if I stop feeling this way? Most of the day I feel fine.
Just a bit worried.

Tessa, I would hang in there. The emotions are probably due to a combination of stooping smoking, the high dose of hormone (injection) and (maybe) the Zyban®. You have to remember that Zyban® is an antidepressant in higher dosages and might even help for the sadness. Good luck.
