Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is a cluster of severe affective symptoms recurring during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, and it affects up to 8% of menstruating women. In Denmark, this disorder is often overlooked. Unlike in the treatment of anxiety and depression, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors need not be given continuously but can be effective when used only in the luteal phase. This review provides an overview of the current knowledge on the diagnosis and treatment of PMDD in Denmark.
