At the appropriate dosages, it is ok to take Effexor and Zyban. Bupropion is prescribed with Effexor for depression.

I would contact my doctor before discontinuing the Effexor. Did the same doctor prescribe both? You are going to have withdrawal effects from stopping the Effexor which is not going to be corrected by taking the Zyban. They are both antidepressants so eventually you may experience some help with your mood from the Zyban, but takes a few weeks to build in your system.
