can i take wellbutrin and buspar (buspirone) together?

Yes: Yes. If you have an anxiety diagnosis (which is suggested by your interest in buspar), be aware that wellbutrin (bupropion) sometimes can aggravate anxiety. Wellbutrin (bupropion) is very handy to have around for many cases of depression, add, and smoking cessation, and is usually well-tolerated. But there is that potential for aggravating anxiety.

Yes: I agree with dr. Byars. They often make a very helpful combination therapy for the patient.
