Re: Nortriptyline question for a woman? sl

sl - I was talking to a psychiatrist about SSRIs and PMS. He felt that the serotonergic antidepressants really don't do much for PMS. I have heard some women on this board say that they have helped decrease the intensity of their PMS symptoms and have read some studies saying that Prozac, starting 5 days premenstrually did decrease symptoms. So, in essence, what I am trying to say is, I don't know.

Nortripyline is a tricyclic antidepressant with some serotonergic activity, but I haven't heard of it being used for PMS.
