Depression, Anxiety, Sleep & Menopause

Feeling sad or blue is a common symptom of menopause affecting 19-29% of women. However, studies have shown that clinical depression is not more common during menopause, except for those women who have long-standing depression or anxiety. Knowing this and discussing a plan with your physician for your mental fitness, medication and sleep options can help you manage your life through menopause and beyond.
