Response from Dr. Pierone
Zyban is buproprion, which is also the same agent in Wellbutrin. Norvir should be expected to increase the levels of Zyban based on its impact on liver enzyme systems so they can cautiously be used together. We have many patients on this combination, we often go with a lower than usual starting dose of Zyban and then build up slowly from there.
