Hi Gunnar: I looked up interactions between wellbutrin and chantix:
Therapeutic duplication is the use of more than one medicine from the same drug category or therapeutic class to treat the same condition. This can be intentional in cases where drugs with similar actions are used together for demonstrated therapeutic benefit. It can also be unintentional in cases where a patient has been treated by more than one doctor, or had prescriptions filled at more than one pharmacy, and can have potentially adverse consequences.
Nicotine-craving reduction agents
The recommended maximum number of medicines in the 'nicotine-craving reduction agents' category to be taken concurrently is usually ONE. Your list includes TWO medicines belonging to the 'nicotine-craving reduction agents' category:
varenicline (active ingredient in Chantix (varenicline))
bupropion (active ingredient in Wellbutrin SR (bupropion))
Note: The benefits of taking this combination of medicines may outweigh any risks associated with therapeutic duplication. This information does not take the place of talking to your doctor. Always check with your healthcare provider to determine if any adjustments to your medications are needed. I would run this information by my doctor, if I were you. Hope this helps. "G"
