    What are Climara and Prometrium? Are they hormone replacements? You seem young for that, without having a hsyterectomy.

    As far as the antidepressants go, have you tried Zoloft? As far as the other stuff, I don't know what Climara and Prometrium do so I don't know what to say except I know how you feel.

    Hi Julie...sorry you are suffering. I had pretty bad PMS/PMDD until my hysterectomy in January. I also have anxiety problems and occasional panic attacks. After I had no success with antidepressants (didn't help anxiety or PMS), I realized that I could take my Xanax (anxiety med) when my PMS got to the point when my son would say, "Mom, you're using your angry voice." I never acted like that any other time of the month. The Xanax really helped a lot. I hope you can find some relief.

    Re: PERI-meno & PMDD anyone.. HELP!!!!!

    You are just starting! I began the peri-menopause phase at 39 1/2. I will be 49 next month. I had almost 10 years of periods just starting to get wacky. I was so good before that that I could tell you the day and time of day that I would start my period or ovulate. Then this January I started a light period on Jan. 1st. I wasn't really due until Jan. 10th or thereabout. But what happened next was a surprise. I had light bleeding/heavy spotting Jan 1-7 or 8, then a period type of flow, then back to light bleeding/heavy spotting. I went to my gyn who put me on birth control pills on Jan. 26. I hadn't been on them since 1982. My first period after being on Levlen was the worst in recent years. Ok, so back to your question--eat as good as you can -- all the fruits veggies, etc. and try to watch your salt and sugar. And exercise--I belong to Curves and I love it. But keep in mind even doing those things still you will have changes. I have been standing in the back of church for almost 10 yrs. Why? Because the Sunday before my brother got married I had Hot Flashes & my period at the Same Time!! I almost passed out. I was hot, it was July and I felt stuffy. I have had incidents where going into a department store or driving was overwhelming. IT was as if all the information tried to get into my head all at once and I couldn't process it. This happened twice. Once about age 40 where all the sudden it was like I could see cars come towards me, one on one side coming up and I couldn't handle the process of taking it all in. With going into the department store it was like I stood there and everything came at me all at once. This is hormones doing their chemical changes. Nothing is really wrong, it's just strange.

    Re: PERI-meno & PMDD anyone.. HELP!!!!!

    Read up on natural progesterone creme and PMDD. It should help but you have to understand why and how to use it.

    Good luck!
