Menopause and antidepressants – Kim Goulding & Dr Louise Newson
Kim Goulding is one of Dr Newson’s patients here at Newson Health. In today’s episode, Kim talks about her own experience with the menopause how she was offered antidepressants. She has always been the driving force behind her family and became socially withdrawn and very low in her mood. She had no idea initially what was happening to her and her life had really changed. She talks to Dr Newson about how she tried to receive the right treatment and her experience taking HRT.
Kim’s Three Take Home Tips:
- It can be difficult when struggling with severe symptoms, but go and find the right help. If your GP can’t help you then go private if you can.
- Women should not have to pay for good quality menopause care, but getting the right treatment is priceless!
- Get informed and search for evidence-based resources, such as balance app.
