Discussions that mention prozac

Menopause board


Hi,

I am 39 and believe I am in early Perimenopause. My periods have gotten closer together (every 21 days now) and my PMS has gotten to be PMDD. The week before my period, I could not be more depressed, anxious, moody and irritable. IT usually passes when my period comes, but I still have on and off depressive symptoms.

I was just prescribed Prozac which is supposedly the "drug of choice" for PMDD. I'm not impressed after 2 months. It makes me feel numb vs. moody. Is this what they call relief?? I don't!

Has anyone had success with any medication or supplement to help with PMDD symptoms?

Thanks!

Chris
