Hide the Knives

I'm having hip surgery next month, and my doctor insists I be smoke-free one month prior.

Since I cannot simply withdraw on my own, he has given me a prescription of Wellbutrin (Bupropion). Some of the possible side effects from the medication include dry mouth, rash, nausea, insomnia, tremor, excessive sweating and tinnitus.

From Wikipedia:

There is evidence of several neuropsychiatric symptoms associated with bupropion in patients with depression, including delusions, hallucinations, psychosis, concentration disturbance, paranoia, and confusion.
