      Hi does anyone know anything about the link between ADHD and PMDD? I’ve found that my ADHD medication (lisdexamphetamine) stops having any effect a week before my period and during my period. I also get severely severely depressed (even suicidal) during this period, despite taking antidepressants and the pill. Has anyone else experienced this and had any success treating it? I keep getting fobbed off by doctors.

      Thanks!

      I know what you’re talking about. I take Celexa and it’s made a world of difference for me. I also take Vyvanse. I started taking Magnesium for all my mental health issues. It also has made a huge difference! I 500mg every other day. It helps with so many issues. Physical and mental. Look it up. I hope you get some relief soon.

      The two have been linked scientifically:
