I was on the two separately, first Luvox then switched to Welbutrin. They have different effects. Welbutrin seemed to give me more energy and a bit more focus but didnt help the agitation..LOL The Luvox helps there I think. I am sorry about the horrible side effects for you. Good luck in searching for alternatives.

First of all, I just want to say that I'm sorry about all of the horrible side effects you have been experiencing over the years while taking Effexor. I really hope that the change in antidepressants from Effexor to Zyban will be successful for you. Unfortunately, I can't help in answering all of your questions, but hopefully someone on the forum will have experience of taking Effexor and Zyban together. I did want to let you know though that I am also in Australia, and at one point, I took Zyban (300mg) in combination with Cymbalta (90mg) for a period of about six months without any issues. So I guess I wanted to let you know that I was able to combine Zyban with a SNRI.
The other thing that you could consider which is used quite frequently by psychiatrist's to help ease patient's withdrawal symptoms when they are discontinuing from SNRI's such as Effexor and Cymbalta, is to temporarily take a low dose of Lovan (fluoxetine) for a short period as you come off the SNRI - with Lovan's long half life - it seems to help. This was what I had to do to get off Cymbalta because the withdrawal symptoms were really terrible.
Anyway, good luck with it all, and hopefully someone on the forum will be able to answer your specific questions,
