This did work for us, but just for a very short time. As I'm sure you know this is a touchy thing and not all cures / preventions work all the time. We even tried Excedrin Migraine formula for a while, it too worked for a short while. Hope this helps.

Hello suz871. Wellbutrin is an antidepressant that has been prescribed as an antidepressant and also off label for reasons other than depression. Such as being prescribed to stop smoking. and SAD (seasonal effectve dosorder) as well as for ADHD. Nothing to suggest being prescribed as helping to prevent migraines/headaches. Regards, pledge
