Zyban can be purchased still: General pharmacies cannot obtain Zyban (bupropion,)used not only for smoking cessation, but also being one of the world’s most widely used antidepressants. It is reported this medication will only be available again in March 2020, maybe. It can however be compounded by compounding pharmacies near you, so ring around and ask.

Alternatively, it can be purchased with a prescription, for less than the retail price many of my patients pay, from a NSW pharmacy Harrington Beach Pharmacy Telephone number 02 6556 1533. (Depression.com.au has no connection with this pharmacy)
