There are some OTC remedies claiming to assist in treatment of PMS, but none have been clinically proven.

A better option may be discussing the prescribing of a low-dose Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) to treat mood-related and physical symptoms. Fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline, fluvoxamine, or citalopram (such as Prozac, Sarafem, Paxil, Zoloft, Luvox, or Celexa). These medicines improve the brain's use of the neurotransmitter serotonin, relieving depression, anxiety, irritability, aggression, and physical symptoms in many women with PMS and PMDD. They are effective either when taken during the premenstrual weeks only or when taken continuously.
