Is wellbutrin (bupropion) and prozac a good combination in addressing depression and anxiety?

Use alternative. Unfortunately Prozac (while an awesome drug) can interact with quite a few medications. Usually the SSRI + Wellbutrin (bupropion) combo is a great and very commonly used therapeutic option for patients suffering with depression and anxiety. There are plenty of efficacious and safer alternatives. Hope that helps!
