You need more: The pill is quite helpful for pmdd(moodiness around your period) but it may not completely fix it. You should talk to your doctor about your symptoms. An ssri like Prozac (fluoxetine) could be helpful but you need tone checked out to make sure nothing else is going on. ...Read more

Con't BP II vs PMDD? Can I still have PMDD symptoms w/out period? BFing for 14mths but 14 days of stability followed by 14 days mood swings ea mth

Unclear: PMDD is not usually confused with Bipolar II. If you are breastfeeding and not having periods then it is not PMDD. PMDD is very specific in its relationship to the menstrual cycle. I would schedule a visit with your primary care doctor or psychiatrist and ask for an evaluation. Post partum depression and bipolar screening can be done to help you sort this out. ...Read more

Im 40 years old im sweating really bad always hot...It can be super cold and, im still hot and sweating....Also with mood swings...Is this, menopause?

Not sure...: Go to your gynecologist . Are you still getting your period? They can do blood tests to help know if you are menopausal. If so, you might be a candidate for hormone replacement, but that requires discussion with your doctor. There are some other medical problems that could cause you to feel so hot and have increased sweating--let your doctor check you out. Good luck to you! ...Read more

Taking nexito 20,qutipin 100 for 6 months with addition of d-veniz 50 for last 10 days .still having depression and mood swings too often .what to do?

Depression: Your post shows that you're in India so it's best that you follow up w/your Family Doc or Psychiatrist there. Nexito is Peruvian brand of escitalopram (http://goo.gl/Eb1OTt). Qutipin is Chilean or South Korean brand of quetiapine (http://goo.gl/HMU23t). Veniz is Myanmarian brand of venlafaxine (http://goo.gl/K8t9wq). There are many other options besides these three. Also ask about counseling, too. ...Read more

I have long periods but had a short one & been pukey, tired, mood swings, & spotting a week off & on with a negative test. Possibly pregnant still?

Get help: You sound like you need some support. Home pregnancy tests are very reliable. Do you really want to be pregnant? You list that you have been pregnant 2x but no births. It is emotionally very difficult to be trying and not getting pregnant. Talk to your ob/gyn and ask where you can get additional emotional support. Best wishes. ...Read more

Valerian: You could try valerian. However, if you have been on celexa (citalopram) for a while, you might ask your doctor about switching antidepressants. Sometimes a different one, even in the same class, could be more effective for any given person. ...Read more

I worry all the time and have really bad anxiety. I take celexa 40 mg a day and topamax (topiramate) for mood swings but still worrying like crazy. I can't sleep. What should I do?

Talk therapy: It sounds like someone is prescribing medications for you, but in severe anxiety psychotherapy is a very important part of treatment. The worrying can be helped through tools you can learn in therapy. You can ask your prescribing doctor for a referral. Also there are usefull books to read such as stop obsessing and the mindful way through anxiety -- many exercises there that can help also. ...Read more

Been on the pill for almost a year. Why do I still get PMS? Not every month bt sometimes I get horrible mood swings a few days before my placebo pills

Evals needed: Someper-period symptoms - esp mood ones - can be unrelated to hormones. Consider a clinical psych eval for mood and maybe therapy. Also, a OBGYN eval may be useful. BC is not the only help out there. Hope this helps. ...Read more
