The success rate of Cytisine is comparable to treatment with nicotine patches and other anti-smoking drugs like Varenicline (Chantix) and Bupropion (Zyban). And yes, with nothing near the potentially adverse side effects as the top prescribed medications. Cytisine was first marketed all the way back in 1964 in Bulgaria of all places.
Now, Cytisine costs much less than the current medications mentioned above. That is awesome that it is not a budget buster. A month of Cytisine pills, sold in Central and Eastern Europe under the brand name Tabex, costs about $15 in Poland and $6 in Russia. Pfizer and GlaxoSmithKline don’t like that. But, to BIG PHARMA’s liking, the drug is not currently approved in the United States, Japan or Western Europe. Interesting huh…Though, I’m sure if you wanted to find it, that you could be resourceful enough to do so.
