Stopping Hormone Therapy Has More Potential Side Effects Than Resurgance of Hot Flashes

Many women are being under treated for hot flashes according to the North American Menopause Society. As a result of no treatment, inadequate treatment, and treatment discontinued earlier than it should be women are suffering from a variety of health effects, including depression. According to the May 27 JAMA Psychiatry online report depression can recur when postmenopausal women discontinue their estrogen therapy, according to results from a randomized clinical trial.
"Some women are at risk for developing depression after hormone therapy (HT) discontinuation, and the presence of a past depression during perimenopause increases that individual risk," Dr. Peter J. Schmidt, from the National Institute of Mental Health, Bethesda, Maryland,was quoted to say in a Medscape report. The numbers of women suffering just because of inadequate hormone therapy is not known. But if you are experiencing hot flashes or other menopausal symptoms in menopause, please see your health care provider to help decide if any treatment is indicated.
The risk of depression increases up to three-fold in women going through menopause, and it is very important to not let clinical depression go without treatment.
