Psychology of Addictive Behaviors 2009 American Psychological Association 2009, Vol. 23, No. 2, 373–379 DOI: 10.1037/a0015695 Beliefs and Attitudes About Bupropion: Implications for Medication Adherence and Smoking Cessation Treatment Lisa M. Fucito and Benjamin A. Toll Yale University School of Medicine Stephanie S. O'Malley Yale University School of Medicine Beliefs about medication are associated with treatment adherence and outcome. This is a secondaryanalysis of the role of beliefs and attitudes about bupropion in treatment adherence and smoking cessationoutcomes using data from a smoking cessation trial of open-label sustained-release (SR) bupropiontherapy reported previously (Toll et al., 2007). Positive beliefs and attitudes were positively correlatedwith intentions, desire, confidence, and motivation to quit smoking; expectation of quitting success;perceived benefits of quitting; and perceived disadvantages of smoking. Positive beliefs were alsoassociated with greater medication adherence, an increased likelihood of completing treatment and beingcontinuously abstinent, and a delayed latency to smoking lapse. These findings provide preliminarysupport that positive beliefs and attitudes about bupropion are associated with positive attitudes towardquitting, better treatment adherence, and potentially better treatment response.
