As a man, I cannot begin to imagine the changes in a woman as she goes through her premenstrual cycle. For sure, I've witnessed it and have never really quite understood the mood changes in a woman during that particular 'time of the month'.
One thing I do know however is by giving Seroxat to a patient because they are going through what every single woman on this planet goes through is ludicrous.
Once again, GP's are prescribing antidepressants for something other than severe depression.
Why not just give the patient a gun!
The MHRA should contact NAPS and offer some advice. They should also send out a 'Dear Doctor' letter to every GP in the UK advising them that drugs such as Seroxat should not be given to women with period problems.
I think we have more chance of Hell freezing over before Kent Woods and his posse act upon this.
