    Different drugs effect people differently,

    HRT (it has to be the right one FOR YOU)

    The anxiety is dreadful, I have it tooeek

    I really hope the HRT works, give it atleast 3 weeks

    However, I recommend an antidepressant, SERTRALINe excellent

    Hi Sarah

    i too started with Anxiety out of nowhere apparently it's normal, the ladies on here have told me to try flax seed capsules, just been to Holland and Barrett to get some, and the lady in there said it is great for menopause, so from now I am giving it a go, I personally don't really want to go on tablets if I don't after to, I am going to try the herbal route first, best of luck, if the hrt doesn't work give the flax capsules a go xx

    It depends on your body. When i took HRTs it made my anxiety worse plus it raised my blood pressure and my heart rate. There are side effects to where it can make a person have anxieties but you may ba one of the lucky ones it could help cam you down like it does with some people. 

    Give the HRT a try and if you are still having anxieties in a few weeks to a month then ask your doctor for and antidepressant and an antianxiety medication

    I have had my share of anxieties and even on meds i still get anxious i have to do my coping skills and my relaxation and learn some yoga to help stay calm 

    Even if you are on HRT you will still have anxieties at times because medication will lessen it it won't take it away completely you have to learn coping skills for your anxieties
