Q: I have had PMDD since I was 24. Now they have a drug out called Yasmin. What do you know about this drug?


Dr. Donnica:
I am sorry to hear that you suffer from PMDD. I hope that the information on our website was helpful to you. To get a complete list of articles discussing PMDD on DrDonnica.com, click here.

Yasmin is a birth control pill that may help reduce symptoms of PMS, particularly bloating, fluid retention, and irritability. If you suffer from true PMDD, I doubt that this would provide a resolution of your symptoms, but it may lessen them. You didn't say if you are currently on any therapy (psychologic or pharmacologic). The medicine you may want to consider/evaluate/ask your doctor about is Sarafem, which has helped many women with PMDD. If your doctor agrees, and you want oral contraception, you can take Sarafem and Yasmin concurrently. Click here for more information on Sarafem. For more information on Yasmin, please click here.
