Sarafem (Fluoxetine) is an antidepressant. This medicine affects chemicals in the brain that may be unbalanced in people with depression, panic, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive symptoms.
I found that this drug helps significantly with my level of depression and monthly irritability that occurs around my menstrual cycles.
Sarafem is used to treat major depressive disorder, bulimia nervosa (an eating disorder) obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder.
You should see some improvement in 1 to 2 weeks. It may take 4 to 5 weeks before you feel the full benefit.
I take 10mg for just 14 days before I get my period. It definitely helps with my mood and uncontrollable anger. Before taking this, the silliest things would make me want to scream!
It is important to continue taking this medication as prescribed even if you feel well. Do not stop taking this medication without first consulting your doctor.
