PMS,Peri-Menopause Effexor XR?

Posted by Isabel on October 19, 2003, at 16:32:58

I have my new prescription for Effexor XR which I have not filled yet and am contemplating it's use.
This drug is being recommended by OBGYN Dr. for the symptoms above. Feeling tired, sleeplessness, hard time concentrating, very emotional (sad)and some hot flashes for 2 weeks out of the month. My OBGYN said this drug is just becoming popularly prescribed for these female symptoms. Have never taken an anti-depressant before. My therapist said I should try it. Finally got the script from my regular M.D. for 37.5 mg once a day.
Had to come here to find out info on it and appreciate all the postings. Now I will look for an alternative. Anyone have natural remedies for depression and PMS symptoms? I cannot take anything that increases estrogen,since, I've recently had estrogen positive breast cancer.
Thanks for any advice.
