Menopause Conventional Treatments

Menopause Conventional Treatments

In a conventional sense menopause is viewed as actually not needing treatment unless the symptoms a woman goes through are quite severe. Being a natural process, treatments are required in case of artificially induced menopause.

  • However, hormonal replacement agents including estrogen with progesterone are often administered for patients with a uterus in order to prevent endometrial cancer. In case the patient doesn't have a uterus, this isn't necessary at all.
  • There are other patients who may want medications to help them deal with symptoms like mood swings and hot flashes, associated with menopause. Most of these medications such as fluoxetine, clonidine, venlafaxine, paroxetine, are mostly low doses of antidepressants that are effective in keeping blood pressure at normal levels too.

Some common advice by doctors for dealing with menopause are;

  • Intake of anti anxiety and anti depressant drugs, in order to calm the nerves.
  • Trying out Progestin/Estrogen Replacement Therapies
  • Use of Premarin - a form of ERT.
  • Intake of 1500 mg calcium daily (for retarding the affects of low bone density levels)

Patients Medical uses an intergrative approach combining conventional and holistic.

Most important, even though menopause is not an illness, you shouldn't hesitate to get treatment if you're having severe symptoms. There are conventional treatments and holistic treatments for menopause available; from lifestyle adjustments to menopause hormone therapy from Patients Medical.
