I take wellbutrin (bupropion) and i'm on a vitamin cleanse advocare 24 day challenge. can the herbal and vitamin supplements stop my wellbutrin (bupropion) from working?

Not likely: The herbal parts of this regimen seem to include milk thistle, echinacea, and astragalus -- none of which should cause a problem with wellbutrin (bupropion). If you're also taking the fiber part of this plan, i suggest taking that separately from your medication so that absorption is as good as possible.
