Hey min min,
The side effects from Wellbutrin include headache and irritability. The headache should subside within the first couple weeks. The irritability needs to be discussed with the doctor. It takes upwards of a month to get the full benefits from this medication.
In general, it will take several weeks for the side effects to subside completely. If they become intolerable please contact your doctor as soon as possible.
Good luck, and keep in touch,

When you say moody, could you be nervous as well? And are headaches of migraine variety? Do you have visual problems such as sparkles, or an aura before the headache hits? If you answer these questions, I may be able to offer an opinion, just need a bit more info.
Hope it all clears up, as Laurie said.
