    Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) - Other Treatment

    Most of the following complementary therapies aren't considered standard treatment for PMS. But you may find that one or more of them helps to relieve some of your symptoms. In general, these treatments are safe and don't cause bothersome side effects.

    • Before you take any vitamin, herb, or mineral supplement, talk with your doctor or pharmacist. He or she can find out if it might interfere with other medicines you are taking.
    • Be sure to follow the directions on the label. Don't take more than the maximum dose.
