Tricyclic Antidepressants for Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
How It Works
TCAs improve your mood by increasing the levels of certain chemicals in the brain (Reference neurotransmitters Opens New Window).
In low doses, these medicines may cause drowsiness and sleep. This can be helpful when sleep disorders are a symptom of PMS.
