I would suggest you try it before your talk to see if there are any ill effects. It is hard to predict.
It depends on the dose. Bupropion increases blood levels of Propranolol. Be mindful that this combination may cause hypotension and bradycardia.
Yes, I suggest taking 10 mg. of propranolol (Inderal) about 2 hours before your presentation. If that dose proves too low you can double it the next time.

There is no problem taking a Beta-blocker and bupropion.
Yes, you can. However, consulting with your doctor is advisable before you add any medication.
