Anger Management Message Board

Anger Management Board Index

All the symptons you guys (gals) are describing is known as PMDD (Pre Menstrual Dysphoric Disorder). It a very serious form of PMS. I was diagnosed a little over a month ago and prescribed medication to help control it. I strongly urge any woman who feels out of control; like a completely different person the two weeks before her period to seek help from her doctor. I was prescribed Paxil, and although I'm not completely thrilled with the medication itself, it worked wonders controling my "uncontrolable" irritability. Don't risk your relationships with your family and loved ones over something that can be fixed. Look up PMDD on the web and check out your options. Get help!!
I've suggested a topic to the moderator specifically for PMDD, since it is different than anxiety or depression. Those may be some of the symptoms, but hormonal changes and low seratonin levels are the cause of the problem. Hopefully we'll get that PMDD board!
[QUOTE=americandancer]Hollyday, may I ask what medication you're taking for pmdd?[/QUOTE]

I was prescribed Prozac. But instead of just taking it 2 weeks a month, I took it daily because I thought it would work better if it had a steady level in my body. It worked really well to muffle my anger spells. They still happened, but at a more controllable level and not nearly so wild.

However, 3 months ago I got off the Prozac (after 7 years of daily use) because I really really wanted to be able to live a normal life without a pill. At first things were ok but now I'm raving again. I have anger issues anyway, they were just exacerbated at certain times of the month. Now even my so-called "good days" are getting filled back up with rage.

I hate my mouth sometimes!!! I just have no control of some of the horrible things I say! I'm thinking about getting on St. John's Wort because it works like an anti-depressant. Isn't it funny that anti-depressants help with uncontrollable anger??? I'm not depressed, I just want to blast everyone I meet! ;)

I guess this really should have been a different thread because it's a whole other issue. Sorry for the hijack...
