I have a 17 year old daughter who has stress issues. During "that time of the month" she gets really bad. I would take her to the doctor, but I don’t want her on Zoloft, Paxil, etc. Does anyone know of anything that would be good to give her? I don’t really want a muscle relaxer, just something to help her cope. Thanks.
Try talking to your doctor about St John’s wort for stress. Its herbal, but herbal remedies usually have a lot of side-effects. The meds that you are afraid of have less side-effects. For that time of the month, birth control pills actually reduce PMS symptoms. Talk to your dr.
