    Abstract

    Several approaches to alleviating the symptoms of premenstrual disorders are available to women and can be tailored according to individual needs and preferences. This article discusses methods that entail changes to lifestyle and diet and managing life stresses without relying on drug therapy, as well as a variety of medications that may be necessary in addition to or in place of recommended lifestyle modifications. New pharmacologic research is promising and is discussed along with the need to provide empathetic counseling for patients to determine the approach that will work best for each individual.
