Sarafem for PMDD

Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is more than just "PMS." Symptoms of PMDD can affect a woman's life to the point that they interfere with school, work, and relationships. Common symptoms include:
 
  • Mood changes, especially depression or mood swings
  • Anxiety or tension
  • Anger or irritability
  • Lack of energy.
  •  
In clinical studies, Sarafem® (fluoxetine hydrochloride) was shown to be effective at treating PMDD. In these studies, up to 38 percent of women taking it showed moderate improvement in their symptoms, compared to just 11 percent of women not taking it. Studies have also shown that Sarafem is effective when taken every day or when taken just during the last two weeks of the menstrual cycle.
