Chronic PMS: Many women experience pain with menses, and sometimes reactive diarrhea, related to the irritation of the peritoneum in the abdominal cavity. For PMS depressive mood symptoms, we have used Prozac (fluoxetine) 10 mg for 2 weeks a month with good results. Make a consultation with your doctor, and see if a trial of this medication would help.
