Venlafaxine and smoking cessation

Recommended Posts

I am on NRT and have been for about 2 months, taking the lozenges. Also been on 150 mg of venlafaxine for over 2 weeks, but in the last few days I have lost all nicotine cravings. The lozenges make me feel sick and I have thrown them away, not the slightest bit of interest in taking them. Could venlafaxine be responsible for this? I know it effects norepinephrine at 150 mg and zyban also effects this, so could there be a link or is my body just fed up with nicotine? I find that unlikely as I heard nicotine was one the most addictive drugs known and I have been smoking for over 15 years, heavily at times.

Surely there is some, maybe tenuous link?
