User avatar Hi shemcd,
I looked it up and there is nothing that says that there is a drug interaction between both these drugs. Concurrent use of SSRI and phentermine can increase the risk of serotonin syndrome. However, the antidepressant effects of bupropion are not serotonergically mediated.

Best regards,
