Can I take Welbutrin and Chantix at the same time. I take Welbutrin for depression, but am trying to stop smoking also. If they are compatible, I would like to ask my Dr. for the Chantix. Thanks.

There are no direct drug interactions between Wellbutrin (bupropion) and Chantix (varenicline). 

If you are considering using a nicotine patch also, and you have high blood pressure, please talk to the doctor before using a patch with the Wellbutrin (or Zyban). The two together can increase the blood pressure.
