Depression is one of 66 symptoms associated with perimenopause. I would even say that this is one of the more common things that the periods suffer. By reaching or entering the Middle Ages, many people may be reminded and unresolved issues of our past. This means that hormones that are linked to haywire can lead to depression and anxiety.
We all know that antidepressants are most medicines for the treatment of depressed patients. This is no exception if the woman is perimenopausal. And what's wrong. Antidepressants and perimenopause are rarely a good combination.
Why is this?
Because prescription drugs do not deal with the occult octal of what causes the woman's depression.
Not all of us suffer from depression for the same reason. Some women are depressed because they suffer from vitamin deficiency. Vitamin B has a special effect on man's mood. Others are depressed simply because they have a balanced hormone.
Of course, some women may be depressed because of their living conditions: deceased parents, ailing child or hard work or marriage. Of course, antidepressants can help them pass through difficult times. But unless they change their condition or wound healing, they will probably not go through depression.
So you see that treating each of these women with the same tablet does not make much sense. They try to remedy depression while they can not cut the case, never lead to real healing. Therefore, antidepressants often simply do not work.
I'm not telling you to drop antidepressants down the drain. But I'm telling you to have a happy, healthy life if you decide to be free of prescription medication. And you can do this even if you are struggling with the worst depression.
The cause and treatment of depression is not as difficult as you would think. For some women it's as simple as adding a Vitamin B complex to your daily routine. Surprisingly, how many people successfully deal with depression with this simple thing. So, if you feel that vitamin deficiency can cause a low mood, try to find good quality.
The absence of the three major sex hormones, estrogen, progesterone and testosterone can also cause depression. Check with your doctor to test your levels and find out why your mood may be the cause of the deficiency.
Fortunately, you do not have to use synthetic HRT to compensate for hormones. Nutrition, exercise and certain supplements can be effective methods for promoting healthy hormone production and blues removal.
So antidepressants and perimenopause are not always inevitable combinations. There are several options available to treat your symptoms.
