In brief: Wellbutrin (bupropion) and HAs?

Wellbutrin (bupropion) XL is an antidepressant.
It is also marketed at zyban, and may be prescribed for smoking cessation. I'm glad to see you're getting treatment for your depression! Whenever you have a side effect you don't anticipate, it's always a good idea to give a call to your prescribing doc to discuss what exactly to do in your case, to have you feeling your best ASAP.
