I have really bad pmt every months but yesterday was the worst by far.. I was feeling horrendous, pulled a sickie, I have cried all day....Worst of all I tought about suicide, I have actually said to dh that I wanted to kill myself and really meant it (well on the moment), I have actually asked him to put me in an institution...Its unbearable. Today, I'm fine, my periods have arrived. I'm on citalopram for depression, I have tried evening primrose oil, is there anything else I can try ??
Can't help - but know where you are coming from. I find increasingly I will just burst into tears with PMT, which makes work interesting to say the least. I does help a little if I recognise it for what it is and tell myself that although I feel that the world is about to end it is only because of the time of the month.
i get like this. i was on prozac but came of it at the start of the summer. exercise helps a lot and diet. avoid alcohol and starchy foods in the second half of your cycle. also go back to your gp about your ads.
I had this for a while and it was horrendous completely ruined my life for a fortnight a month for about 3 years.
My Doctor prescribed prozac to combat it. I thought it was a bit extreme but it so worked! You take it permanently until the effects are felt then reduce it to just the 2 weeks a month where problems lie.
I also changed my diet to help too. After about 18 months I stopped the prozac and just stuck to avoiding certain foods and am fine!Still get a bit irritable for a day or 2 but know the warning signs and try to avoid any majorly stressful situations around then too.
Best bet is go see your GP, theres lots of ways to tackle it, please don't suffer any more you don't need to!
I second the healthy eating but also found for me that the only thing that stopped it altogether was taking the Combined Pill. For years I was fine and it was only when my periods returned 10 months post-birth that I remembered how bad it used to be.
