You may take cold medication including the CVS branded medications while you continue your extended release Bupropion. The one concern I would have is that to minimize any stimulant side effect of the cold medication, I would choose a formulation that does not containe phenylephrine or pseudophedrine. There is a small chance that taking a preparation which contains either of those two ingredients might cause you a jittery type feeling. CVS makes multiple formulations of multi-symptom cold relief cold medicine so be sure to read the label.

I hope I have given you some good information and an adequate response to your query. I am available for your followups.
