PMDD question

I think I have PMDD. The symptoms were getting worse before I had my second child ( 9/22/08) and now they are back and getting increasingly worse each month. What do the drs do about this? I have my annual in a couple of weeks, so I plan on talking to my OBGYN about it. I just want to know what meds they prescribe. With the stress of raising two kids, working from home and keeping up on the housework etc when this happens each month, I just can't cope.

  • They may put you on an that is an SSRI...because you may not be clinically depressed...but more just a hormone thing...and the SSRI anti-depressants really help with stuff like that. That's just my guess tho....maybe hormones? Sorry, I hope this helps. Good luck.

  • My daughter had the same thing and her OB prescribed YAZ, birth control pills. They are specifically prescribed for the treatment of PMDD and all the symptoms that come with it. Ask you OB about it.
