How much are you taking? I was told you need to take the extra strength - 1000mg? And you have to take it for a couple of months for it to have an effect. I get really bad pmt too and am yet to perservere with the ep to see if it works.
I doubt that this will be of any help, however I will post it!
Evening Primrose and Star Flower oil contain the same chemical, not sure what it is, however it must be quite 'powerful' as epileptics are warned not to take it and there is normally a warning on the package to that effect, so it must affect the brain in someway but how I do not know.
I am sure another Mnetter will know more.
I am sorry you are feeling bad and I do hope things get better for you soon,
