To the Editor: Dr Schroeder1 discusses bupropion as an aid to smoking cessation, since it decreases the craving for cigarettes and the symptoms of withdrawal. Noting the high prevalence of psychiatric disorders among smokers, he comments that bupropion “has the added advantage of treating both conditions [craving/withdrawal and depression] simultaneously.”
