Exercise Recommendation with SSRI Not Just for Hot Flash or Psychological Benefit

Exercise for women with both hot flashes and
depression has been known to have many positive benefits. Improving bone health is one of those benefits, that is particularly important if you are on a SSRI therapy. A new study by Sheu ( SSRI use and risk of fractures among perimenopausal women without mental disorders. Inj Prev. 2015 Jun 25) showed their risk of having bone fractures was significantly increased. Although women in perimenopause, when having hot flashes, are known to increase their bone loss, they are typically osteopenic, and not yet at a significant risk for fractures of their bones. For those women considering SSRI medication instead of hormone therapy, this new finding shouldn't stop them from hormone use, but make sure you get enough exercise and calcium intake.
