Have you been offered antidepressants by your GP for your Menopausal symptoms?
An article in the Daily Express Newspaper states – “Hundreds of thousands of menopausal women are being prescribed antidepressants because poorly trained GPs are misdiagnosing their symptoms, campaigners warn. Women often suffer anxiety and mood swings as they reach the menopause but doctors are mistaking a hormonal imbalance for a mental health problem” – Here’s the link to the full article https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/health/1234751/health-news-menopause-antidepressants-medication-menopausal-women
As a Homeopath & Health Coach I work with women (and men) to get to the cause of the sadness, anxiety or depression.
Yes sadness, anxiety and depression are all common in the peri menopause years from the late 30's onwards, understanding your symptoms, talking them through and getting to the root cause of the issues is vital.
Often an emotional trigger alongside gut health and messed up hormones is to blame. I also have clients who have been on antidepressants for post-natal-depression, and they're still on the medication 15 years later! With help they can come off them gradually working alongside their GP and myself. For the men, yes the male menopause is real, I find men with anxiety, stress and depression often need someone to talk to outside of their family or work environment. Feeling understood and heard is the first step.
You can help yourself by looking at your diet and your lifestyle, and understanding the Peri menopause. Here's a link to some nutrients that can help with anxiety and depression 9 foods for Anxiety and Depression in Menopause
