Question: Zyban-Stopped Chewing Tobacco

 ScoCrp - Tue Aug 17, 2004 10:49 am

3 mos ago I started taking Zyban, 2 mos ago I stopped chewing and used 2mg nicotene gum for 2 wks, now I am eating alot of sunflower seeds and have pretty severe joint pain. So far, so good without nicotene, any ideas?

Zyban can cause joint pain. Sunflower seeds will help alleviate this pain after you discontinue your Zyban use.
