Over-prescribed medications can have devastating consequences for women in many areas of our lives: sex, relationships, sleep, eating, focus, balance, and aging.

In psychiatrist, Julie Holland's book: Moody Bitches, she incorporates self-help, science, and women's health issues to deliver perspective and clinical information about naturally cycling moods in the female body. Dr. Holland wrote this book in response to an influx of women coming to her office, seeking out psychotropic medications to suppress their mood.

Harness the knowledge you garner when you’re more critical, write it down, and put it into action when you’re more genteel and diplomatic, as soon as your period ends. For severe PMS that affects functioning (missing work or school, being unable to perform household chores, having huge, regular blowups with everyone around you), there are prescription medication options. Psychiatrists will commonly prescribe SSRIs or SNRIs (serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors like venlafaxine, desvenlafaxine, and duloxetine; see the appendix for details).

Also by Julie Holland. Weekends at Bellevue. Moody Bitches will show you the way, giving you the tools you need to take care of yourself. Part One. Moody by Nature. Moody Bitches tells the truth about monogamy and desire, and why it is that your SSRI (anti-depressants like paroxetine or sertraline) is likely not doing you any favors in the bedroom. I also explain the physical and emotional consequences of pregnancy and child rearing; becoming a mother changes not just your body but your brain. Change is the constant in women’s lives, and never more so than in perimenopause, the transitional period before fertility ends that recalls the turmoil of pubescence.

You each have the blueprints for the other’s development Motherhood may be all about giving, but sex is often about taking what you need, and maybe even being a bit selfish

You each have the blueprints for the other’s development. Your children have valuable lessons to offer you as they push your buttons. Our demons surface when we’re reminded of their existence, and we lash out. That moody little bitch is your yoga, a trigger for self-reflection, not a reason for you to go on psych meds. First of all, Do Not Take the Bait. Motherhood may be all about giving, but sex is often about taking what you need, and maybe even being a bit selfish. You have a right to receive pleasure and release after all the caretaking you’ve been doing, but that’s a pretty big mind flip. I find that transitions require rituals.

I appreciate your pro natural attitudes! I felt to mention that the shaving of pubic hair by women in ancient China was a practice, a trick used to stimulate the hormones of longevity and youth in the female body. I've taken so many pages of notes, I feel like I'm transcribing the book from type to chicken scratch, but that's just how many "aha!" moments I've had while reading this.

You are entitled to your emotions. Holland begins the book by talking about how emotions can be advantageous, such as anxiety

You are entitled to your emotions. Holland begins the book by talking about how emotions can be advantageous, such as anxiety. Historically women have had to protect their young – and an increased anxiety gives an increased sense of the environment, thereby allowing the female to be more vigilant and to be able to protect her young better. It’s still advantageous now, as it helps you become more detail-oriented and focused when you really need to be. 2. It’s better to go to the root of what’s causing emotional outbreaks. Don’t blunt emotions by taking antidepressants.

Missing, The Sex You’re Not Having, and What’s Really Making You Crazy.

Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You’re Taking, The Sleep You’re Missing, The Sex You’re Not Having, and What’s Really Making You Crazy. A groundbreaking guide for women of all ages that shows women’s inherent moodiness is a strength, not a weaknessAs women, we learn from an early age that our moods are a problem. To succeed in life, we are told, we must have it all under control. We have to tamp down our inherent shifts in favor of a more static way of being. On Medium, smart voices and original ideas take center stage - with no ads in sight.

A groundbreaking guide for women of all ages that shows women’s inherent moodiness is a strength, not a weakness As women, we learn from an early age that our moods are a problem. Bitches are moody. To succeed in life, we are told, we must have it all under control. We have to tamp down our inherent shifts in favor of a more static way of being. But our bodies are wiser than we imagine. Moods are not an annoyance to be stuffed away. They are a finely-tuned feedback system that, if heeded, can tell us how best to manage our lives. Our changing moods let us know when our bodies are primed to tackle different challenges and when we should be alert to developing problems. They help us select the right tool for each of our many jobs. If we deny our emotionality, we deny the breadth of our talents. With the right care of our inherently dynamic bodies, we can master our moods to avail ourselves of this great natural strength.  Yet millions of American women are medicating away their emotions because our culture says that moodiness is a problem to be fixed. One in four of us takes a psychiatric drug. If you add sleeping pills to the mix, the statistics become considerably higher. Over-prescribed medications can have devastating consequences for women in many areas of our lives: sex, relationships, sleep, eating, focus, balance, and aging.  And even if we don’t pop a pill, women everywhere are numbing their emotions with food, alcohol, and a host of addictive behaviors that deny the wisdom of our bodies and keep us from addressing the real issues that we face. Dr. Julie Holland knows there is a better way. She’s been sharing her frank and funny wisdom with her patients for years, and in Moody Bitches Dr. Holland offers readers a guide to our bodies and our moodiness that includes insider information about the pros and cons of the drugs we’re being offered, the direct link between food and mood, an honest discussion about sex, practical exercise and sleep strategies, as well as some surprising and highly effective natural therapies that can help us press the reset button on our own bodies and minds. In the tradition of Our Bodies, Our Selves, this groundbreaking guide for women of all ages will forge a much needed new path in women’s health—and offer women invaluable information on how to live better, and be more balanced, at every stage of life.

This book has been very enlightening for me. Learning exactly how my body as a woman works and all the different things that affect my mood and how sertain foods and supplements can improve my anxiety levels. I agree whole heartedly with the author that women are majorly underrepresented medically and made to contain our feelings. This book has inspired me to make some life style choices to improve my health. I strongly recommend this book to any woman. I have learned more from reading it then I ever learned in school. I also love how down to earth Judy holland is in her writing and how she uses her own personal experiences both as a woman and a therapist.

An excellent book with lots of candid information. As a woman who has been on several different forms of birth control and anti-depressants in the past, it is important to understand how these medications can affect your moods so that you don’t end up completely over medicated. It is also very surprising that doctors dispense these medications so often without considering the ramifications for the patient. A must-read for any woman taking regular medication, and a fascinating read for anyone who wants to understand the lives of women more.

I’m taking off one star because the author occasionally overdoes referring to women who are acting bitchy as bitches or bitchy. I realize that she is reclaiming the word “bitch” to make a point - that these women are behaving normally according to their justified and healthy biological processes. However I think she is too accepting of the social norm of labelling women or behavior “bitches” when it is actually just rational behavior and society should be more accepting of the biological experiences and normal behavior of women. She mentions that her husband should be praised for tolerating two “moody bitches” at once - herself at perimenopause and her daughter at puberty. This statement really threw me off because it sounds apologetic - not empowering. I feel it also assumes that men are immune from all hormone and self-control issues which we know is not true, and further they are not labeled bitches for their actions. The book proceeds very logically and then every once in a while an odd, frumpy comment about “a bitch” comes up and breaks the stride. Those moments come across a bit outdated, like a Cathy cartoon, which I found a bit bothersome.

I read this book to get a different view of my wife's emotional changes after delivering our son.
I Knew very little about what Doctor Holland shows on her book, it gave me an understanding and an idea of how to face situations when persons loose behavioral balance due to the chemical unbalance. I never realized I was vulnerable same as women are to all this complex topic.
I am glad I found this book because I know now more about what women go through, but also about recognizing when I am going through this emotional roller coaster that affects everybody in different scales.

I applaud this book. I am making it required reading for all of my new clients. PS- Dr. Julie Holland thank you for writing this book! Amazing on all levels! I felt to mention a peculiar tid bit that might interest you. I am a sacred sexuality teacher and have been researching and practicing sexuality as a healing modality for 20 years. I understand what you are getting at in your discourse on pubic hair. I appreciate your pro natural attitudes! I felt to mention that the shaving of pubic hair by women in ancient China was a practice, “a trick” used to stimulate the hormones of longevity and youth in the female body. I often wonder if the current fashion is related to a deeper unconscious need and wisdom to keep our mojo flowing in these times?! Make that a study!

This book is the be all end all guide for women, explaining many things in a few hundred pages, that you'd never hear from decades of visiting your OB-GYN! I am so grateful. I have it in print and audio. Ms. Holland has provided a much needed reference guide for women of all ages. I'm in my late 50s and I've bought a copy for my 30 yr.old daughter as well.

Some good information, but plenty of areas that should have been delved into further.

So insightful. I am in my 30's and I would recommend this to older teen girls...I wish I could have had that knowledge then. Even my mother loved how it helped her understand her peri menopausal stage.
Excellent book about the results of our modern society and its medicalization of the human experience especially with regards to women. Holland writes candidly about the hormonal fluctuations women experience and the repertoire of treatments both pharmacological and natural. She points out the downsides of hormonal contraceptives as they cause widespread physiologic and psychological effects beyond preventing pregnancy, but does so in a thoughtful, balanced way. She also shares her psychiatric expertise generously in discussing ssris and other commonly prescribed medications and their on and off label usage. She also touches upon herbal and vitamin treatments which are typically not as well publicized in the medical community and this was a welcome addition. Though a bit tangential at times, this is a well researched and empowering book about taking back control of our natural instincts and understanding the connections between our physiology and our psychological well being.
