Hi After keeping a journal I have found that my depression seems a 100 times worse before my period! Does anyone else find this too?
Any hints or tips except chocolate of course :LOL:

I personally was prescribed SERTRALINE by my doc for regular depression, one thing I did find though, was that it helped with the pre menstrual depression as well. I always knew when I was due because I used to get more depressed a week before.

Setraline aparently is prescribed for pmt depression.

I can honstly say that I wish I had told my doc about my pre period depression years ago, maybe then I wouldn't have been such a wench.

My lack of sleep was as a result of the depression rather than the tablets, I take a different one now and still have a lousy sleep pattern.

worst easin off now. thank goodness. could do without pmt on top of depression. i find documenting the ups and downs of day to day gives me focus and helps me recognise the patterns and hopefully recover.
