Wellbutrin + Drinking

 My doc put me Wellbutrin as an aid to stop smoking.  I know that he said to not do any heavy drinking when on the medication, but, can I have a few beers tonight?  (No more than 2)?

I didn't know wellbutrin was used to quit smoking.  I used to take it and it didn't make me want to quit.  I'm sure I had a couple/few drinks while I was on it...

 Eeek!  I'm so nervous my beer is getting warm-- Has anyone else drank a beer on the meds?  (I'm not aiming to get drunk just to grab a beer with husband) :)  And its a new thing that if you take it for 2 weeks then stop it should make you quit pretty easy :)  Well, thats what they say so here's to hoping!

I have had a few drinks now and then on Paxil.  But I couldn't say about Welbutrin

I hope it works for you, because I sure have seen no evidence of it working for anyone else.

 Eeeekkkk!  Don't tell me that!  I really wanna stop!!  (Maybe it will just make me less bitchy when I quit lol!) 

I had a friend whose doc prescribed a combination of Wel.  & Chantex.  He quit but I'm not sure which one it was due to.  I can't take Chantex.

Dh, his good friend and I have all used it to quit smoking. I am not a drinker so I never drank on it. Dh drinks but he never drank while on the mess. Dhs good friend got drunk on it so I wouldn't see why two would hurt.

It worked for Dh, a friend of ours and myself. Our friend quit back in November and suggested the meds to dh who then quit on it and then I took it for two weeks and quit on it.
