For the past 2 months I've been reducing my low dose HRT. The first month I reduced by two/three tablets a week and the second month I reduced to one tablet every other day. Since reducing I've noticed my low mood returning and my mood swings have been horrendous. Teary, angry, upset, bad tempered etc. I was on antidepressants before I went on HRT 3 years ago but because I have fibroids my doctor wants me to come of the HRT. My doctor has suggested I try SSRI's (a class of antidepressant) but I'm reluctant to go back on them. My low mood must be connected to my hormones as since weaning off the HRT I (and my hubby) can definitely notice a change in my mood. It's like having permanent PMT
Can anybody suggest an alternative to these SSRI's? Has anyone tried the SSRI's and had some benefit? I could really do with some advice please.....or maybe the nearest gas oven!!
