Re: HRT treatment...what to do?
I am also on bio-identical hormones, since March. My doctor also prescribed Celexa, an anti-depressant. He also prescribed Ativan, an anti-aniety, and Ambien for sleep to use as necessary. I used both the Ativan and Ambien for just a little while until I was feeling better. Now I hardly ever need them, and thus don't take them The Celexa helps to keep the depression and anxiety in check very well for me. I hate taking pills, but the quality of my life was so yucky without them; I am very glad there was medication available when I needed it. I know I won't be on HRT or anti-depressants for the rest of my life. As much as I hate taking meds., I also hate that something as normal and natural as menopause can rob me of the quality of my life if I don't take medication. I feel pretty much my old self now. Good luck to you and hope to see you around this board with good news about your health!
