I am currently taking chantix to stop smoking and i'm also on steroids for bronchitis. Are these two medications safe ?

I am currently taking chantix to stop smoking  and i'm also on steroids for bronchitis. Are these two medications safe ?

Oral steroids can also worsen depression in some people. I do not know if the effects are additive. If your doctor is aware you are on both meds, discuss with him/her. If you are feeling severe sadness, stop the chantix. ...Read more
