A neighbor has been prescribed Lexapro and Ativan for a depression/anxiety issue. So far she’s thinking that it’s working (and I think she seems much happier, to be honest.) She smokes about a pack a day and has decided that it’s time to quit. Has anyone else had experience quitting while on these medications? I’ve heard that Ativan may help reduce nicotine cravings because of the way it works in the brain. Her doctor said the only stop smoking medication he knows of is Chantix.
