How often should I take antidepressants for perimenopausal rage?

There are various types and doses of antidepressants available by prescription from medical health-care providers and psychiatrists. In some women with perimenopausal rage, these sorts of medications may be prescribed to use daily all month long, and in others, they are prescribed to use just two weeks of the month during the premenstrual syndrome (PMS) timeframe. The benefit of only taking the antidepressants part of the month may be that it minimizes unwanted side effects on sexual response or weight. All antidepressants have risks and benefits that you should review with your health-care provider and pharmacist so you can make an informed choice.
