Is Oxyelite pro with Zyban contraindicated?

Hello, 'I'm a 41 yr old female, 160 lbs , 5'4" and in fairly good health (no illness that require meds, work out 3-4 X's a week and run approx 10miles a week) I'm currently taking Zyban to quit smoking. Is it ok to take Oxy Elite Pro while taking Zyban. Thanks

Oxyelite was supposed to be removed because it was associated with a few deaths. So.... its contraindicated with everything (air/water/food) Zyban might increase the action of stress hormones, but not very much and not as much as many other things.
The oxyelite might, theoretically, increase the seizure risk of the zyban but, this is purely a conjecture on my part without direct evidence.
