I take Buspar and Pristiq for anxiety and depression, but during ovulation and my period, I feel it doesn’t work at all. I’m miserable during these times. Birth control is not an option... tried it many times and it makes me sick and even more miserable. Suggestions please!!
What can be done if ovulation and my period is making my anxiety and depression worse?

I have PMDD as well and I feel your pain! Prozac is recommended for PMDD and I’ve used it before. Taking birth control really helped my symptoms but it caused heavier, longer and more frequent periods. Plus, cramps, acne, backpain, and other things so I am off it now. I took it for 6months and it really stabilized my mood swings during my period. I would try Prozac or a mood stabilizer. Lamictal is frequently prescribed for stabilizing mood swings. I hope this helps. I heard about different holistic methods to help and I’ve tried some but the thing that worked the best for me was birth control or Prozac or lamictal. If you want me to talk more about other methods let me know. I hope this helps.
I don't really understand what's happening, as I'm trying to answer your question with my experience of the severe issues i have with the same thing, & what has helped me, but the answer keeps being deleted. I'm sorry they won't let me share what worked for me, with you. It's a real shame.
