I have not heard of this med helping monthly problems, but I have heard of them using Zoloft to help with the PMDD. Maybe the med you were prescribed helps in the same way.
Can you not use Birth Control Pills? I used those and they made life so much better for me. After I had my tubes tied, I stopped using BC pills and all that pain came back and worse.
