6. Lastly, Talk To Your Doctor About Your PMS Symptoms
Visit your doctor to talk about pros and cons of various medications and dosing schedules.
Consider the benefits of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Discuss with your doctor the possibility of taking SSRIs only during the premenstrual phase. Consider diuretics, which may have benefit for alleviating water-retention symptoms. Take a look at anxiety medications. The antianxiety agent Xanax (alprazolam) has been found to be effective for PMS when given only during premenstrual phase.
