I want to take Claritin for allergies. I’m on Zoloft, Wellbutrin, vistaril (spelling), and trazodone. Any major drug interactions?
I take Prozac 20mg and wellbutrin (bupropion) XR 150mg once a day. Is it safe to take claritin-d for my allergies while on these meds?

2. There are other potential interactions between Prozac and welbutrin, especially with any seizures or head injury.
Discuss all with your doctor to be sure you are being safely monitored. ...Read more
