Never take Paxil or Prozac and NyQuil as these two drugs triple the dose of NyQuil in your system and can hurt your heart and you. Bupropion only has a mild interaction in a very, very small percentage of people and is safe to mix. If you are really worried, take the NyQuil but use one-third less than the dose suggested on the NyQuil bottle.
