I have been taking this medication for 7 months now. It has honestly changed my life. I wish I would have started taking it a lot sooner. I have suffered from, what my doctors called,PMDD. I was depressed, anxious and easily frustrated at some points of the month which seemed to center around my menstrual period. I would cry for no reason, get upset or mad for no reason, I was super sensative ... Show Full Comment

I tried Sarafem for the first time to help with PMS. I only took 10 mg for 14 days. Yes, it does take the edge off, however I had a very difficult time sleeping.

I had an option to cut the 10mg in half but I decided against it. I will try a more natural route ... Show Full Comment

I am more stable in mood, my breasts weren't tender with my period, I have less symptoms of PMDD (my hubby noticed a difference!) and I just feel more like myself. I take it at night b/c it tends to make me a little tired if I take it in the morning. I have also lost weight which has been ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I asked my Dr if there was anything I could take for that anxious and "short-fuse" feeling I had each month, before my cycle. She told me about Sarafem. I told her I didn't want to really take anti-depressants. She told me about taking it for 14 days, before my cycle. I've been taking it for over a year now and it has been a blessing. I haven't experienced any negative s ... Show Full Comment
