Fluoxetine Hcl (Pmdd)

Drug Info for fluoxetine hcl (pmdd)

Fluoxetine is used to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (bothersome thoughts that won't go away and the need to perform certain actions over and over), some eating disorders, and panic attacks (sudden, unexpected attacks of extreme fear and worry about these attacks). Fluoxetine is also used to relieve the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder, including mood swings, irritability, bloating, and breast tenderness. It is also used along with olanzapine (Zyprexa) to treat depression that did not respond to other medications and episodes of depression in people with bipolar I disorder (manic-depressive disorder; a disease that causes episodes of depression, episodes of mania, and other abnormal moods). Fluoxetine is in a class of medications called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It works by increasing the amount of serotonin, a natural substance in the brain that helps maintain mental balance.

Sarafem is a prescription medication used to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder. This medication works to change the chemicals in the brain to improve your mood, open your appetite, and improve your energy level. It also treats depression and works to reduce unwanted thoughts, fear, panic attacks and anxiety. Sarafem may also be used in patients diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder and helps to reduce the urge to repeat tasks such as hand-washing and counting. Sarafem also reduces premenstrual symptoms such as irritability, increased appetite, and may also reduce binging and purge behaviors in bulimia.
