Let us talk about Premenstrual Syndrome
Every woman in this world has a different menstrual pattern. This difference in the pattern is because of some conditions. Today I am here to discuss one of those conditions. Many women in this world suffer through Premenstrual Syndrome. Let's discuss it briefly.
Premenstrual syndrome is a condition that has a variety of symptoms and signs in it. The actual cause of this PMS is still unknown. This usually occurs 3-4 days before the new menstrual cycle occurs, and ends with the start of the cycle. Many women have not experienced its effects many times, but most of them observe it before every menstrual cycle.
The signs and symptoms are divided into two categories. The emotional symptoms that mood swings, depression, anxiety, aggression, food cravings, fatigue. The physical one has abdominal bloating, headache, breast tenderness, joint or muscular pain, constipation or diarrhea, and many others too.
Is Premenstrual Syndrome Is Dangerous?
Well, physically, it does not shows any such serious effects. Still, emotionally it becomes so difficult to cope up with its impact, and especially it becomes so difficult to manage them with your normal lifestyle. So it is better to seek a physician for that. The physician will then observe the menstrual pattern and diagnose the actual dominant reason for the PMS. So in this way, it will become easy for you to keep things set. But remember, there are many other factors too which mimic the effect of PMS. In this case, it is better to avoid over the counter drug practice.

First of all, always remember that certain chemicals naturally conduct all the metabolic or hormonal functions of the body. So, if you are looking for any medicine which can relieve you from different problems, always seek professional help first.
Use of SSRI:
As we have mentioned above, the significant effect of this PMS is on the emotional health of an individual, which results in a disturbing level of serotonin in the brain (a neurotransmitter). So, in this case, Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors are helpful. These groups of drugs primarily work to reduce the level of serotonin. It may include fluoxetine, paroxetine, and sertraline. Also referred to as antidepressants. It is successful in the reduction of mood disorders. But the use is limited to certain specific women.
USE OF NSAIDs:
The non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are the one which has a strong effect in treating the cramping pain of menstrual cycle. It includes ibuprofen or naproxen sodium. It may cause abdominal problems.
USE OF DIURETICS:
Some diuretics like Spironolactone is helpful to reduce the fluid pressure from your kidneys during the PMS.
USE OF CONTRACEPTIVES:
PMS is also treated by stopping ovulation (the process of producing ovum during the menstrual cycle). This practice may be harmful, but many women go for it as they are getting a breath of relief from having hormonal contraceptives (medicines that stop fertilization). Yaz is the only FDA approved drug for PMS.
