I have been taking 10 mg. of Prozac 14 days before my menstrual cycle for the past 5 months. The Prozac was working rather well and the milligrams seemed to be doing the trick. But this month I am noticing that the PMDD is bad again and I need to have my meds increased. I noticed yesterday that I was very depressed, angry, having severe hot flashes and sweats and all of the other extreme symptoms of PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder).
So I took an additional 10 mg. of Prozac and today I am feeling somewhat better. I still feel exhausted and drained, but that is one side effect that never seems to leave for me regardless of what I take.
Now I need to call the doctor and get another prescription so that I have the increased dosage for next month.
