Depression at Menopause: Hot flushes at Menopause

Menopausal Depression

Introduction

It is one of the common symptoms which express in a bizarre form. Many women are confused about their symptoms. They are suffering the below symptoms but why they can not understand.

Depression exhibits in the following forms:

Sadness
Loneliness
Restlessness
Heaviness of head
Irritability
Loss of interest in surroundings and everyday life activities
Anxiety
Sexual aversion

Allopathy

1. Alprax, Calmposse, Larose, and other antidepressants such as Prozac - all of them have side-effects of causing dependency, habit-forming, gastric upset, and increase in weight.
2. Some other treatments that Allopaths give for menopausal depression such as  H.R.T which have their own side effects. Recent theories have established that stroke and breast cancer are more common in women who are taking hormones compared to those not taking them. It is like a U-turn of various allopathic theories.

Homeopathy (Expert Homeopathy: Dr. Anutosh Chakraborty)

1. Homeopathic medicines such as Pulsatilla N, Sepia, Ignatia Amara, and Kali Phosphoricum are of unquestionable value. Either singly or in combination, depending upon the symptom complex of the patient, especially har nature, are of unquestionable value in menopausal depression.

Reson for the above combination:

Changing mood and weeping tendency of pulsatilla.
Disgust at menopause and "a fish out of water" attitude, dysfunction, typical of sepia.
The main symptoms are Irritability, depression and disturbed sleep, confusion of Kali Phosphoricum.
The above combination has given me the best results in my patients than given individually.


Hot flushes at menopause

This is a common symptom in 90% of women at menopause. If the woman does not know it at the beginning, she will panic because something serious is going on. It is worst in highly stung women due to instability of the autonomic nervous system.

Allopathy

They do not have any treatment except to give her H.R.T, which have their own side effects. However, Alprax like other tranquilizers is habit-forming and in the long term may lead to parkinsonism.


Homeopathy the natural remedy (Expert Homeopathy: Dr. Anutosh Chakraborty)

1. Sanguinaria and Glonoin are my mainstays in this symptom. We should start with 30 potencies of Glonoin, then go to 200.

2. Those patients who did not respond to this, Lachesis which often controls the symptoms.

3. In very resistant cases and those who had migraines in the past, Sulphur 30, 200 at infrequent intervals, followed by Sanguinaria and Glonoin.

Reason for the above combination:

Sang. Can and Glonoin in combination have much better results owing to their synergistic action than given alone. Lachesis can have a negative effect in combination with other remedies.
