Should You Use Anti-Depressants for PMS?

At a GYN meeting at Univ. of California at SF, Dr. Ellen Haller recommended calcium supplements for PMS, and anti-depressants if the natural approach does not work.  First of all, you want to include a healthy dose of magnesium and probiotics along with calcium.   Sometimes bio-identical hormonal replacement of natural progesterone is needed.  Homeopathic PMS drops can be very effective.  Anti-depressants are rarely needed to get good results.
