I feel different, I've gone from a confident, funny-loving and gained self-esteemed person to a moody, irritable and depressed person. I did seek therapy...the end result, I have PMDD. But before that diagnosis I was taking Wellbutrin XL which I loved, it felt like it helped. Then in changing medical insurance, I've been force to change to Bupropion HCL SR, which I felt very "iffy" about. While taking Bupropion, I began to bruise, so I've weened myself off. I do not want to take any other SSRIs due to the sexually side effects but I do know that SSRIs help with PMDD. But Wellbutrin is not a SSRIs, it's a NDRI which I did not like the severe side effect...liver damage but it's the only one that helps keep your libido. Now, I've decided to take birth control pills which also helps with PMDD but again I do not like the side effects with those...cancer, liver damage and weight gain. So, my question is does Wellbutrin help with PMDD?
