Recognizing your symptoms yourself and letting friends and family know how you feel at this time helps to improve communication and avoid some of the conflicts that result from changes in your mood.

In brief: Medications

Ssri antidepressants like zoloft (sertraline) and Prozac are fda approved to treat premenstrual symptoms.
Often women only take these medications during the end of the monthly cycle. Hormone replacement can also be utilized, but that may have more risks.
