hi Elizabeth,
Yes, I have tried SSRI's to help with the pms. I mentioned prozac in my
earlier post. I have also tried paxil. Both have helped to a certain
extent, but they also aggravated other things. The SSRI's enabled me
to function a lot easier and more productive during the pms phase, but
they pushed me too much during the non-pms time. SSRI's, in general,
are like playing with fire for me. They rev me up too much- even with
the most minescule of dosages. It's like they make me cross this line
between just feeling good and feeling good and not caring about anything
else. There are times when I have felt GREAT on prozac, but actually
behaved more horribly towards my husband bcuz I had lost all capacity to
feel for him. I think I'm going to have to look into the estrogen thing.
I don't remember ever going through this when I was on the pill bcuz it
evened everything out. I can't take birth control pills now bcuz of the
carbamazapine. Anyway, thanks for responding.
