I have been taking sertraline weeks and I do feel

Resolved Question:

Hi I have been taking sertraline for 3 weeks and I do feel better today however I have read many many positive reviews about combining this drug with Zyban (Welbutrin) it is only prescibed for smoking cessation in the UK but as anti depressant in US would it be possible to find a private doctor to prescribe this ?
