Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hi there ,
Welcome to Just answer !
Well , whether your symptoms are a direct implication of depression or if they are due to post menopausal syndrome , will dictate whether you should start on prozac or HRT , because prozac being an SSRI anti dperessant needs to be started if you are suffering from depression or anxiety or both , but if it is the PMS ( post menopausal syndrome ) , then HRT , DIFFERENT FROM WHAT YOU TRIED PREVIOUSLY WOULD BE the remedy .
So, i suggest that you ask your doctor to evaluate your symptoms and based on your symptoms come up with a definitive diagnosis of depression or PMS , AND based on this , he should start you on either anti depressant like prozac or on HRT , AS THE TREATMENT should be diagnose related , only then it will work.
I hope this helps...
I wish you all the best and rapid recovery to the best of health.
