Does Anyone Take Wellbutrin Or Something Like It With Metformin To Help With Depression?

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I suffer from huge ups and downs with depression and my mother wants me to take something for it and I used to take Wellbutrin but I felt it didn't work, i was hoping that maybe anyone might be taking something like it and wanted to know if it is helping you.

A myPCOSteam Member

I take 100mg sertraline tablets for my depression, but it was diagnosed before I was diagnosed with PCOS.
I'm also on 500mg metformin twice a day and simvastatins, 20mg.

Overall Treatment

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I've never treated my PCOS, until now I had never knew there was different types, I've tried everything to lose weight, I gain weight rapidly. I have issues with facial hair and thinning head hair, some bald spots starting. My periods are torture, I was considering a partial hysterectomy but my GYN talked me out of it, I already have two children and plan on no more. Where do I even begin for treatment, I was diagnosed well over 15yrs ago. I'm 40 but never, ever treated.

Metformin During Pregnancy

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Who has been on metformin while pregnant? My RE thinks my recent miscarriage is a result of stopping my metfromin, which my regular OB advised me to do when I went in for my 7 week ultrasound.

A myPCOSteam Member

I wasn’t on it during my pregnancy but I had to have the progestin shot in my hip to prevent preterm labor. From what I’ve seen most RE and gyn want you to continue metformin while pregnant

No Periods

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Anyone else NEVER get a period?

I only do when I take Provera.

I have already tried Metformin, Vitex, weight loss, exercise, clean eating. Still have never had a cycle on my own.

I just started taking inositol, so I'll give that a shot for a few months to see if that helps at all. Any other ideas? Is there anything you have been able to do to naturally get a period?

A myPCOSteam Member

I’m the same.,.I haven’t had a period in so long and I’m trying to regulate my hormones so I can get one..I know of a YouTuber who had pcos and she didn’t have her period for 6 years die to pcos

My Dr Tried Metformin And Progesterone And No Period, She Suggests Clomid. Should I Try It?

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Me and DH have been trying hard for 8 months now, I've had 2 periods this year, none since may. Our Dr tried to reboot my period hormones with progesterone but that was almost 2 months ago, no period. She had suggested clomid to me at that visit, but I hesitated. Now I'm reading many times over about women with my same issues conceiving on clomid. I'm wondering if it's a good idea just to try it and see what happens. I'll take any advice, I'm so sad thinking I can't bare a child.

A myPCOSteam Member

I've been back on it going on 3 months now and am still waiting for a period to come.

Does Anyone Here Take Metformin Or Glucose Meds Who Is NOT Insulin Resistant And Find Any Benefits?

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

So far my tests don’t show insulin resistance that I know of but the doctor was talking about putting me on metformin anyways. Anybody else benefitted from that? Did metformin regulate your cycle even if you didn’t have insulin problems?

A myPCOSteam Member

Totally agree with you, its always best to ask those who are dealing with these things on a daily basis, than health care professionals who may not be going through any of this themselves! I always… read more
