I have been struggling for some months with perimenopausal mood swings, crying a ridiculous amount, not sleeping or sleeping too much, craving carbohydrates, sometimes feeling very anxious and sometimes feeling so low that I don't want to go on. I have felt hopeless at times and ready to call it a day, but then my mood can suddenly lift and I will feel 'normal' again. When I return to normality, I am frightened that I felt so bad and live in fear of the feeling returning. I no longer have a regular menstrual cycle but can go several months without a period and then bleed for weeks on end. My hormones are all over the place. My GP has been brilliantly supportive and has just started me on Fluoxetine, 2 weeks ago. I am still very up and down and felt really low again this morning. Can Fluoxetine really overcome the effects of raging hormones or am I destined to feel this way until I pass through menopause?
