I'm Weatheme and I'm new to this forum. I am trying to seek other options when it comes to dealing with my PMDD. I tried Lexapro in October of this year and everything was okay until I gained 18lbs. up to this month. I stopped taking it and had a HUGE EPISODE and now things between me and my hubby are, not so good. It definitely feels like I'm all alone and no one can understand when these episodes happen. After the episode I'm left feeling ashamed because I'm acted like a monster and it is very hurtful and embarrassing.
