Can Menopause Cause Anxiety?

Hormonal changes, life stress, hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, infertility, and aging can all cause emotional distress that may lead to mood swings or, in more severe cases, anxiety or depression. These fluctuations can also worsen already existing anxiety and depression.

Possible treatments for menopause-related anxiety include hormone therapy, antidepressants, psychotherapy, or supplements for better mood.

Although these symptoms may go away on their own after several months to years, women should talk to their doctor if they are experiencing ongoing panic, anxiety, and depression.
