    I don't know what else to do. Tried everything other than prescription meds. The Amberan is amazing. Helps everything except my anxiety. Please help!

      Hi Mary Most menopausal women need loads of magnesium to help with symptoms such as anxiety so you may find adding a magnesium citrate capsule 200mg daily can help, otherwise you could look at calming herbs such as Ashwaganda or Valeriana. Acupuncture can often be really good for this so worth looking into.

      Hi Michelle Menopause Support is fine with Sertraline but we don't recommend it with Menopace as they both contain soya, sorry.

    Hello everyone - it's good to read here that other people seem to be experiencing the psychological effects of menopause. I am experiencing anxiety and depression for the third time in the last seven years. I am now 54 and two years without a period. The first couple of times antidepressants really helped, along with Talk Therapy. But this time the antidepressants don't seem to be quite as effective. I'm also having counselling. I'd like to try herbal supplements, but am unsure whether they're OK with my medication. I too find that my anxiety is at its peak first thing in the morning and gradually reduces as the day goes on, until I feel completely normal again by the evening. Weekends are the worst when I don't have to get up for work. I find it almost impossible to drag myself out of bed and then the anxiety lasts all day. I don't even know whether my mental health issues are caused by the menopause. My GP and counsellor keep telling me it isn't the cause. It just makes things worse for me, but I always used to be such a happy, optimistic person! Now I get an anxiety surge just thinking about feeding the family, food shopping or family outings!

      I feel the same way. I have never had anxiety and now it's been so bad. I also struggle to feed my family and do everyday things.

    Will this anxiety go away when my body adjusts to lower hormones? And how long does this take? I have had horrible anxiety and depression for nearly 2 years now. I am 50 years old. I had severe post partum depression with anxiety after each of my children were born that lasted 8 months for each.

      Hi Julie Most women find that their menopause symptoms start to ease off a few years after their periods have stopped but this can depend on a lot of things such as lifestyle, diet and general stress levels. The fact that you seem very sensitive to hormonal changes may mean that it could take a little longer for you, but... please don't despair, looking after yourself well, getting plenty of rest and relaxation and supporting your nervous system can often work well. You may find taking the herb Maca can help to ease the anxiety and reduce the depression, this should be OK even if you are on antidepressants. Go for a liquid one as this will work quicker, powders and tablets won't work as well. Acupuncture can often be effective in this situation so worth looking into and you could also check out EFT or NLP as these can reach you how to be more in control.

    Have been anxious for the last few months and depressed I am on anti depressants now. Every time I have a hot drink or meal I sweat. Torso feels like it's burning up sometimes at night. I am twelve days late for my period. I am coming up to 51 years of age.

      Hi Wendy It does sound as if your nervous system is really under pressure just now. Often flushes triggered by hot foods and drinks are associated with this too. You could try the sage tablets and remember to drink lots of plain water, flushes will dehydrate you very quickly and dehydration will put further pressure on your nervous system making everything worse! You could also add in a magnesium supplement 200mg twice a day to help calm the nervous system and this should be OK with your medication.
