Re: Zoloft for menopause?
I was reluctant to take an anti-depressant for meno symptoms also, but my moods were out of control. I had to do something. Lexapro has worked wonders on the mood swings and I have not gained weight from it. I had my meno pouch before Lexapro... if anything I've lost since being on Lexapro because when my moods lifted I was able to get/stay on an exercise routine.
I know everybody is different when it comes to anti-depressants, but honestly ladies I have heard the most positive reports from people using Lexapro, it seems to have the least amount of side effects (I don't have any) and also seems to be the anti-depressant that really helps with anxiety. Before the lexapro I was taking xanax, but now I only take it once every blue moon... so the lexapro is really working.
Now if I could get rid of these hot flashes and sweats.
