Re: Anyone else have trouble finding effective treatment for Meno Anxiety/Depression?
I so understand your post! I am having a hard time with anxiety and depression, and haven't found anything that really helps.
I am 50 years old, and started having peri symptoms around 40, with the symptoms really picking up steam around 46. For the past year I have been on HRT, Vivelle-Dot and Prometrium. I wish I could say it was the answer, but for me, it only helped the hot flashes/night sweats.
I am also on Lexapro, and don't find it does much of anything anymore. I gave Cymbalta a try, and it made me want to sleep all day. I have been on nearly every AD there is in the last 10 years, and haven't found any to really help my anxiety. The depression seems to come and go. Right now I am in a pretty bad phase with it.
I just don't know what the answer is, I just wanted to let you know you are not alone. This is such a hard time in life.
