Stopping smoking: Even with the help of Wellbutrin, stopping smoking can be difficult in terms of feeling emotional and irritable. Put that together with a sudden discontinuation of Effexor (venlafaxine) and you have double the emotional stress. Antidepressants, especially Effexor (venlafaxine), should not be stopped suddenly. Speak with your doctor about weaning off while starting Wellbutrin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it safe to take setraline (zoloft) and buproprion (wellbutrin) together? I have been on Zoloft (50mg) but also would like to quit smoking and heard that wellbutrin is an excellent quit-smoking aid. Is this true and are the two safe together?

In theory, zoloft, which is a moderate inhibitor of the main elimination pathway for wellbutrin (bupropion) (2b6), could increase wellbutrin (bupropion) concentration in the blood. This may lower a seizure threshold and increase your seizure risk. The final decision requires consideration of a variety of factors such as your age, sex, presence or absence of liver or heart disease, other health factors and is for your physician to make. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
