menopause symptoms
jayhawk posted:
I have been for the last 9 years-treated for major depressive disorder with reccurent symptoms. I am 58 years old and I had a partial hysterectomy when I was 35 years old-no periods since then. Now for the past 5 months I have been experiencing night sweats, increased weight, and my depression has gotten a lot worse even though I have been taking anitdepressants for 9 years. Would this be menopause? My depression is much worse-I eat more, I have lost all interest in everything, I have a terrible time getting out of bed, even then if I do manage to get up and get dressed I spend most of my day laying on my bed. I am fed up. Can anyone help me?
Anon_6061 responded:
Some women become depressed (or more depressed) as their estrogen levels fall around menopause. With your other symptoms, that sounds like what's going on. I quickly became suicidal after my hysterectomy with ovary removal. I had never suffered from depression before that. I never took an anti-depressant because estrogen "cured" my depression. It sounds like you could use an increase in AD dose or some estrogen. Hope you get some relief soon.
