I went to my PCP yesterday and she prescribed me Wellbutrin for depression as well as to help me stop smoking.  I was reading about it online last night and it said not to take pain killers like morphin and such while on them.  Im wondering how its going to work when I have my resection surgery in November?  Will I be able to have pain killers after the surgery...I mean obviously I will have to have them, but will I need to stop taking the Wellbutrin before the surgery?  I read that it can have bad withdrawl symtoms.  I will have only been taking them for 2 months before my surgery....Just wondering if anyone has had any problems with this before?
