  • Hi. I am in a simular place right now. I have been on antidpresents since the 1990's. My recent doctor has tried me on various new ones but to no avail. We decided Monday to try not taking any. I felt elated. Since Friday and Saterday darkness appeared and i cannot function. Both my self and the doctor said it could be my menapause. I have tried HRT sometime ago but this aggrovated my condition. Not sure what the next step is, but remember you are not alone.

  • Thank you so much, I feel horrific and can't go on like this, I'm weaning myself from one antidressant to start another,I'm not good at all at the moment so the change I'm dreading, I'm not well at all, thank you x

  • Thank you sorretto, yes like me Iv been on them for twenty years and although this is not working I do need antidressant, but yes I strongly believe I'm going through the menapores because I v had bad spells at times but never as bad as this ?? I'm so afraid I can't get the right medication I need, and HRT was going to be my last hope ?? But then you say didn't work for you ??? I just want to stop feeling so bad, I couldn't even start to put it into words, thank you it helps knowning people understand

  • Hi. I tried HRT but it esculated my depression. Today i am finding it hard to cope to the point of beeing sick. The last 2 yrs we have lost our home lost an uncle we loved dearly and now on the brink of being homeless. Life can be a bitch .

    I have to keep fighting

  • I'm so very sorry to hear your terrible news I'm here if you need to talk xx

  • If the blood tests say you are not menopausal then I'd guess that taking HRT wouldn't help. Its not a good idea to take it unless really needed. There are lots of potential dangers. May I ask how old you are and donyou have any physical symptoms of menopause such as flushes and change in your periods ?

    There are lots of herbal remedies for premenopausal symptoms. You could ask at a health food shop or go online.

    Hope things improve

  • Thank you, yes that's the problem I can't go on anything for the menapores because the blood test are normal , no I can't go on HRT until my doctor puts on it, do there's NO chance of that, I just can't bare to go on like this, thank you for taking the time to help xx
