Fluoxetine (Prozac) for PMDD

I'm 20 years old and I've just been prescribed Prozac for my pmdd. I had an inclination that I was developing it and now that I know I have it, I am concerned about taking the medication. Has anyone else been prescribed this and how has it affected you?

Prozac for PMDD NEW
by: Anonymous

I am 35 and was diagnosed about 3 years ago with PMDD. I have been prescribed several other antidepressants but have been on Prozac the longest. It seems to be the most effective,although I still have a terrible time every month. My poor, sweet husband thinks I hate him every month and every month I have to reassure him that I love him but cannot control my emotions 2 weeks before my period. I would say the Prozac takes the edge off but is definitely not a fix. One sugestion I would make is that Vyvanse helps the extreme fatigue. I am on vyvanse 50 mg for ADD but it also helps with my depression and fatigue. Hope this helps.
