Were you looking for information about Sarafem? Serafem is a common misspelling of Sarafem.
If you have premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), your healthcare provider may prescribe Sarafem® (fluoxetine hydrochloride). It is part of a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and works by allowing more serotonin (a chemical in the brain) to remain in the brain for a longer time. The medicine comes in the form of a capsule that is taken by mouth, usually once a day.
As with any medication, it is possible to take too much Sarafem, and you should seek immediate medical attention if you overdose on this drug. Overdose symptoms can include fainting, an irregular heart rhythm, or breathing problems.
In addition, Sarafem is not appropriate for everyone. For example, if you have bipolar disorder, heart disease, or certain allergies, you may not be able to take this medication safely. Tell your healthcare provider about all medical conditions you have before beginning treatment.
