Bad Mixture: I am more concerned about mixing Cocaine and ketamine with your depression. In persons suffering from depression, recreational drug or alcohol use is not recommended. Bupropion and Cocaine lower a person's seizure threshold increasing one's risk of having a seizure. When using Cocaine and/or ketamine, one is less likely to make healthy lifestyle choices further worsening the depression.

Badly: Cocaine and ketamine are not "recreational drugs". These drugs should not be taken at all, especially when you are on other drugs with effects on the central nervous system, such as bupropion.

You could die: Wellbutrin (bupropion) and those drugs could cause a high blood pressure crisis that could cause a stroke, heart attack or death even in young people. Realize that ketamine and Cocaine are not recreational. They are dangerous and should not be played with.
