Question: Wellbutrin and menstrual changes

 orcadragon17 - Sun Apr 05, 2009 1:48 am

Dear Dr. Seigle,
Here I am posting again... and sorry it took so long.
I was posting about Wellbutrin and menstrual changes. I did have my period soon after posting my question so of course my worries decreased, but that does not make the problem go away. I do not not really want periods, but I am sure it is not good for my bones. Of course other problems enter have entered my mind, but they tend to be about another medication.'
Thanks for any answer you have,
P.S. For your memory here is your response before.

Hi orcadragon17,

I am not aware of Wellbutrin causing menstrual changes, but will be glad to search the medical literature to see if there is any research about this. Please write another posting in a few days for me to respond to.

Hi orcadragon,

I did find only 1 case report in the past 10 years of a single patient with a change in periods that appeared to come from being treated with bupropion. So, this appears to be very rare. I appreciate your feedback and followup. Good luck!

-E. Seigle MD
