In brief: Mood

Mood changes from menstrual cycles can be very distressing and frustrating.
Some doctors prefer to treat this with hormonal type supplement medications. Other medications such as Neurontin (gabapentin) have been found effective as well. There is treatment available so please be seen for this by your doctor and let them know your symptoms.
