The use of drugs that reduce cravings for cigarettes, thereby helping the smoker to gain willpower and quit smoking.
Popular among such drugs:
Varenicline (Champix, Chantix) - this substance binds to the neural nicotinic acetylcholine receptors α4β2, which are involved in the enjoyment of smoking. It is on α4β2 that nicotine acts, but varenicline intercepts this connection, replacing it, the only thing is not addictive and does not give you the pleasure of puffing.
Cytisin (Cytisinum - "Tabex", "Tsiperkuten", "Desmoxan" ) Is another nicotinic receptor agonist, similar to varenicline, which, due to its stimulating effect on the ganglia of the autonomic nervous system and the adrenal glands, reduces the craving for smoking a cigarette. Available in the form of tablets and patches.
Bupropion (Bupropion - "Wellbutrin" (Wellbutrin), "Zyban" (Zyban) - an atypical antidepressant, included in the TOP-5 drugs for the treatment of nicotine addiction in the United States and many other countries (not licensed in the Russian Federation as of 2020) It has the property of reducing symptoms when quitting cigarettes and minimizing smoking cessation syndrome. / p>
