Isabel,

If you go to PUBMED and type in PMS or Peri-Menopause, you will see many different studies done on the topic. Just about any SSRI or SNRI, will help minimize the symptoms of PMS. From experience, I can say that Celexa got rid of all my PMS problems. What I thought was strange is it even got rid of the sore breasts and water retention. But it definitely didn't get rid of the fatigue, I think it made it worse. I tried every natural remedy there was and nothing worked like Celexa for PMS. I was scared shitless to try an Anti-depressant, but once you get through the first 2 weeks of some really "funky" side-effects, it is no big deal. Now I am willing to try any one of them.

I am now taking Manerix, and I like the energy I get from it, but it doesn't get rid of the PMS, even though they have done some studies on it, and they said manerix helps PMS, but it doesn't help mine. So now I am looking to try maybe some other AD, but what is the million dollar question.

If I was you I would research a bit more, and don't be afraid to try an anti-depressant, especially if you are very stressed right now.

Good Luck.
