Vitex/Chasteberry for treating PMDD
Does anyone know about how safe Vitex (Chasteberry) is for treating PMDD and fibrocystic breast disease? I started taking Vitex pills about a month ago and my symptoms are totally gone. I wonder if it's something I can take safely long term?

Yes, agnus castus has been used for centuries to treat various hormonal-related imbalances. It is considered safe for long-term use. Glad you're seeing great results.

I don't know what PMDD is, but in general Vitex can be used on a long term basis safely.  Also, I've had good experiences with Vitex in regulating my hormones.  I will probably be using it long term again whenever I am not pregnant.

PMDD is pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder. It is basically just more severe version of PMS, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, etc.
