What Is Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder and What Are the Treatment Options

Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) is a severe form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) that significantly affects a woman’s emotional and physical health. Characterized by extreme mood swings, sadness, irritability, and anxiety, PMDD symptoms typically occur during the week or two before the onset of menstruation and subside once menstruation begins. Unlike PMS, the symptoms of PMDD are debilitating, often interfering with daily activities and relationships.

Treatment options for PMDD are varied and aim to alleviate symptoms, improve quality of life, and restore normal functioning. These may include lifestyle changes, such as diet modification and regular exercise; psychological therapies, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT); medication, such as antidepressants or hormonal treatments; and supplements to address nutritional deficiencies. The choice of treatment is personalized, based on the severity of symptoms and the individual’s overall health and preferences.

The Struggle with PMDD: Emotional and Physical Impacts

Women with PMDD face significant challenges, both emotionally and physically. The extreme emotional fluctuations can lead to difficulties in maintaining stable relationships, affecting personal and professional life. Physical symptoms, such as fatigue, sleep disturbances, and pain, further exacerbate the situation, leading to a diminished quality of life.

The cyclical nature of PMDD means that these challenges reoccur monthly, creating a sense of dread as the symptomatic phase approaches. This predictability can lead to anxiety and depression, compounding the disorder’s impact. Additionally, the fluctuating symptoms can make it difficult for women to receive consistent support from those around them, who may not fully understand the severity of the condition.

Managing PMDD: The Treatment Process

Effective management of PMDD requires a comprehensive approach that addresses both the physical and emotional aspects of the disorder. The treatment process begins with a thorough assessment to confirm the diagnosis and rule out other conditions with similar symptoms. Following diagnosis, a tailored treatment plan is developed, often incorporating both pharmacological and non-pharmacological strategies.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) plays a crucial role in helping women develop coping strategies to manage the emotional symptoms of PMDD. Lifestyle modifications, including regular exercise, a healthy diet, and stress reduction techniques, are also recommended to mitigate symptoms. In some cases, medication such as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) or hormonal treatments may be prescribed to help regulate mood swings and alleviate physical discomfort.

I was recommended by a friend who said this place has helped her a lot. I was hesitant because of my experience with previous psychiatrists. But Janice is great. She really pays attention to my concerns, and I have been feeling such a sense of well being since having serviced with her. She is also extremely consistent. Sometimes our session lasts about 20 minutes or less because I hardly have any concerns regarding my medications. I appreciate her ability to really prescribe things that help long term. She also prescribed sleeping meds for my insomnia and I been sleeping earlier and better. I don’t wake up tired of weak. Thank you Janice 🙂

Dr. V. Rudoy is a wonderful doctor. Very professional and attentive. I have been seeing him for psychiatric care for a number of years and highly recommend him and this office in general. I’ve seen other psychiatric professionals who work with Dr. Rudoy here on occasion and they are all very competent and warm-hearted.

I have seen many many psychiatrists and Dr. Natalie Rimar is really as good as they come in this field. She is very well versed in the medical field and she gives you the time and attention every patient deserves as opposed to just going to any psychiatrist them giving just 5 minutes of their time and saying ok will RX you XYZ medication I sent it to your pharmacy goodbye. Dr. Rimar actually cares about her clients and takes her profession very seriously. Thank you Again!
