Dear Kasandra

Thank you for visiting

I suggest that you make an appointment with a Gynaecologist, to start with an oral contraceptive suitable for you, which will eleviate the bad symptoms you experience of PMS. I recommend that you use Laxette syrup, twice daily, for one week to assist with your bowel movements.

You can also take Ativan SL 1mg for your anxiousness. Your GP will have to give you a prescription for this.

Kind regards

Dr Anrich Burger
