Premenopause increases anxiety?

Hi to all ladies of a "certain age" - I'm 42

I definitely am in premenopause (the 10-or-so years before menopause) and I've found that anxiety (that's been with me seen pre-teens) seems worse. So does feeling depressed and irritable.

I've read that premenopause can increase anxiety/depression.

I've been seeing a naturopath for years and she's helped with a number of issues, but hasn't been able to lessen the anxiety or this hormonal roller coaster.

Can anyone relate?

I'm right there with you. I'm also that "certain age" (46) and was never bothered by anxiety until last August. I am almost positive it is related to the change in hormones and it's not fun. What I wouldn't give to be my old self again.

Re: Premenopause increases anxiety?

I have the same throat clearing problem and it is driving me crazy. It started when my Zoloft dose got up to 150mg. I have talked to my doctor about it and she told me to take Claritin for it. I have looked it up on the internet and it says to drink water to help it. I guess it is a drainage. My doctor said some meds that is a side effect. She never heard of Zoloft having that side effect but I know this clearing problem is really irritating for me. I also have this feeling like I have a lump in my throat. I plan on going back to a diffrent doctor next week to get checked to see if he can help. Hope this helps.
