Abstract

Over the past 5 years, since a previous review was published, major advances have occurred in the pharmacotherapy of the more severe types of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). The selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors have emerged unequivocally as the drugs of choice for the treatment of severe PMS. Unlike when used in depression, it is becoming increasingly apparent that these antidepressants have a rapid onset of action in PMS, allowing them to be used in intermittent dosage regimes. It has also become clear that most PMS sufferers have normal menstrual cycles in terms of their hormonal levelsand rates of change. The use of hormonal treatments must be viewed with increasing circumspection. Non-biological treatments, including cognitive behavioural approaches, have also strengthened their position as effective therapies. The advent of these effective therapies has placed greater onus on primary care physicians to perform a thorough assessment in order to distinguish PMS carefully from other (or co-morbid) conditions. The physician is also now in a stronger position to present sufferers with evidence-based education regarding therapies which have been shown to be ineffectual.
