Mood changes with PMS / antidepressants

I am interested to know how your time of the month affects your mood.

I am 10 weeks post partum and I feel like I'm about to get my period. I'm so crampy and very anxious.

I'm on a low dose of antidepressants for mild depression/ anxiety which usually help. But right now, I feel like I do when I'm not on antidepressants. Very up and down. Anxious. Depressed and sad. Which affects my appetite. And just in general crap. If I didn't have 3 kids I'd love to just get into bed and sleep!

Is anyone on antidepressants and still feel terribly anxious as part of their cycle? I am worried this isn't normal and I should up my dose of antidepressants. Or maybe it doesn't matter what dose you're on... pms will always affect your mood?
