I have COPD and Emphysema I would like to quit smoking this time so I ordered TBX-FREE but the box says not to use if you have depression or asthma. When I asked my Pulmonologist, he wouldn't even look at the box. Just asked if it was prescribed by a Doctor. I have taken Chantix twice both time quitting within 2 wks, first time for 1 year and the next time for a few short months, with no ill effects. I have used wellbutrin and nicotine patch that didn't help at all. ## I tried chantix twice, the first time had bad headaches and stomach aches so I stopped and got a refund. The second time was earlier this year (2016). I took it for the first 2 weeks and had slight side effects but no difference in my smoking urges! I'm not a "cold turkey" kind of person and I'm wi...

Has anybody used Cytisine to give up smoking, is it an anti depressent, doesn't sound as 'natural' as it was made out to be.

Where can I buy Cytisine? ## Cytisine is a nicotinic acetylcholine receptor agonist, and as a pharmaceutical preparation, it is available for the treatment of nicotinism. It has been available in former socialist economy (FSE) countries for more than 40 years as an aid to smoking cessation under the brand name Tabex produced by the Bulgarian pharmaceutical company Sopharma AD. Since it is a pharmaceutical preparation, this is something you would need to ask your doctor about writing a prescription for. I wouldn't know however if it is available in your area, but any local pharmacy will be able to tell you if they have it or can-have-it ready for you, provided you have a valid prescription. ## how effective has this been? what is the cost? where can it be purchased? not available at ...
