SARAFEM: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder “My Dr told me to take this to ease premenstrual syndrome – one week before my period – the second time I used it I felt very strange – I couldn’t stop crying I called my Dr and broke down in her office. Before this I had not spoken more then a few sentences to her, she got upset with me and told me to see a shrink who put me on Prozac 3 weeks of use and I had a manic episode and was informed I had become chemically bi polar and that SSRIs can cause this to happen. It took 2 years to feel ok again”

For Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder “I have suffered from PMDD for many years. Exactly two weeks prior to my period I would notice a change in the way I felt. I would become very depressed and anxious. I would cry for no reason and have little patience with everyone around me. After suffering for many years and trying two antidepressants that gave me bad side effects my doctor recommended serafem. This is only my second month and I only take it 14 days prior to menses but I feel a big difference. I don’t feel as anxious and I’m not crying at every little thing. This pill has limited my PMDD symptoms drastically. I highly recommend for PMDD sufferers.”

For Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder “I am totally shocked, but it actually worked. Extremely well. If only I had discovered this sooner I might still have a boyfriend….”

For Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder “I have suffered from Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder for most of my life but wasn’t aware that’s what I was going through. Just last month got diagnosed FINALLY and I am a totally new person on the Sarafem. Not different in terms of my personality. Just who I am without all the rage and mood swings. My relationships with my husband and kids is drastically improved. I did have some sleeplessness in the first week but other than that, no side effects. It has changed my life. I look forward to actually living now. I don’t like resorting to medicine right away. But I really wish I would have considered this sooner.”

For Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder “I have been on medication for over 20 years to help with my mood and anxiety. Some I stayed on for a few years and then I would change. Some even less because of side effects. I went on Sarafem after doing my own research and asked the Dr to prescribe it 2 months ago. Thank goodness he did because this is the first time in as far back as I can remember that I actually feel happy every day. Less mood swings. I don%u2019t let things bother me as much as I did before. I am honestly a happier person now. This stuff honestly has changed my life.”

For Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder “I have been suffering from PMDD for years now. As I am getting older, symptoms like tender breasts, bloating, crazy cravings, fatigue, moodiness, crying, anger, have become stronger. I finally decided to talk to my obgyn about this and see if that’s normal PMS or is it more serious.. She prescribed Sarafem and now I have been taking it for 2 months. I, the person that’s against all drugs, am a changed person. Every day of the month my mood is the same.. I don’t have any side effects most people above me stated. If you think at all that you might be suffering from PMDD, talk to your physician. It really helped me get myself back.”
