The efficacy and tolerability of symptom-onset dosing with citalopram in the treatment of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) was evaluated in an open trial. Eight outpatients, aged 18-45 years and diagnosed with PMDD, were treated with 10-20 mg of citalopram from the start of premenstrual symptoms until the onset of menses. Primary efficacy variables were the premenstrual tension scale (PMTS-O) and the clinical global impression of improvement (CGI). Treatment was associated with significant improvement in PMDD symptoms (p < 0.001).
