Hi Betty...

Yes you can smoke while taking the Wellbutrin. It is recommended that you take the Wellbutrin and quit anywhere from 1 - 2 weeks after starting. You will know when you are ready. I stopped after 12 days. I wanted to stop at 10 but that was the middle of the work week and I didn't want to kill anyone..lol. The cigarettes won't taste the same and you won't be getting as much enjoyment out of them. I found that I was smoking out of habit and half the time I did not want to finish them. That's when I knew that it was time. I was feeling fairly confident by then. It's been three weeks now since I quit and the Zyban (same as Wellbutrin) has made all the difference in the world. Good Luck.

Willow

Talking Yes you can Betty

Yes Betty - you can smoke while on zyban or wellbutrin - trust me when the medicine starts to kick in - cigarettes will never taste the same again. You will have dry mouth as well so make sure you read your pamphlet, keep water on hand, limit caffeine, and get some cinnamin sticks to keep in your mouth or candy.
