Do you get PMS?

Just wondering how many other women get horrible PMS. There have been times that I thought it might even be PMDD. Last month I did some research on it and started taking a PMS cocktail of supplements and it's helped alot. Anyone else have things they've done to help?

  • I was waiting for this question...I get it horribly!!!!! I almost think it gets worse with age and WOW, it is pretty friggen is always 2 weeks prior so I kind of get a 1 week break of feeling like I won't kill someone!!! My husband gets the brunt. I was taking celexa and that seemed to take the edge off. I went off of it because I lost health coverage, now I am back to really screwed up with PMS!!! On top of alot of stress, and really bad PMS, my doctor prescribed Celexa and bingo, no weight gain, pimples went away and I was calmer than normal, not a miracle pill, but it did help....20mg. I am going back to get on it, oh yeah it takes a good month before you realize it is working...hope this helps :) Good Luck

  • I get it really bad sometimes, Its like my head starts spinning and i have been possessed by some, and of course my husband gets the brunt of it also. There have been times he said he was going to leave me because I turn into such a b**tch! Sometimes I wonder if I have PMDD because of how bad it is but I have never really taken anything for it just suffered through it, but your post has made me think of googling some rememdies....who knows it might save my marriage one of these days!

  • OP here - The supplements I take are Primrose oil, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin E, B multi, folic acid, and biotin (the biotin is for my hair though). Anyway this month I definately notice a difference. I've only been doing this for 1 month.

  • No I don't but I used to.

    A low fat diet is a good starting point.
