While reading an article about breaking an addiction to smoking (which was interest to me due to my dopamine shortage, even though I have never smoked), I came across the follow, amazing (at least to me) fact:
"One treatment for smoking addiction is bupropion, marketed as the antidepressant Wellbutrin, but also sold as Zyban for smoking cessation. Like nicotine, it increases dopamine transmission, but to a much lesser extent. It is thought to decrease the pleasurable effects of nicotine by pre-empting some of them.
Zyban seemed like a good option for Larry. But its cost, or the cost of any smoking-cessation treatment, for that matter, is generally not covered by health insurance. On the other hand, Larry's insurance would generously reimburse him if I wrote a prescription for Wellbutrin - same molecule, different name."
OK - so if you (or, more importantly, your wife/girl friend) aren't happy with the quality of your erection, increasing numbers of medical plans will cover one of many drugs for that - but when it comes to a drug that will stop you from killing yourself by smoking - according to the New York Times... most medical plans will not cover those drugs.
Is this correct? Can this be correct??
