In brief: Possible interaction

Combining these 2 meds could cause v blood pressure.
If that occurred you could have lightheadeness, dizziness or headache. This doesn't mean that they can't be combined - but you would need to monitor for side effects.

The drugs do not interact directly. However, potential sides for Wellbutrin include palpitations, rapid HR and arrhythmias, which appear to represent your current indication for the atenolol, so it might exacerbate the preexisting condition which prompted use of atenolol in the first place.
