Uncertain: Despite my review of studies, i can not seem to locate any information about the ocp gildess and use for menstrual related mood disorders like premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Premenstrual dysphoric disorder can be treated with fluoxetine (sarafem).

Exercise: I know: it sounds trite but exercise (full aerobic) is probably the one best thing you can do. Pmdd presents with many different symptoms so it really depends what you suffer from. A very healthy diet, good sleep and dealing with stress are all important. Natural supplements like a b-complex, magnesium and 5-htp may help. Talk to your doctor about trying an ssri if mood shifts are a problem.

Any birth control: Pill can help with ppmd. You have to try it and see if it does help you. I typically have my patients with pms or ppmd who are trying birth control pills take the pill continuously (start a new pack every 3 weeks) so there is no period. That sometimes does better to help diminish ppmd.
