Hi, just started HRT - ELLESTE Duet 1mg version. Had it orescribed nearly a year ago for mild depression (didnt want antidepressants) which i think was related to perimenopause but then, waiting for my cycle to start, i was given a SAD lamp which really helped my mood for a bit. I've always been a poor sleeper with regular bad nights and have been taking melatonin for a few years which has helped a bit. But a few month ago insomnia got really bad and melatonin seemed to stop working though i am still taking it. Not falling asleep until 4am or dawn night after night and then trying to function at work, and feeling rubbish all the time. So have now started the hrt because i read the worsening insomnia could be menopausal too. Does anyone know how long it takes to work for insomnia? AM 1 week in and the sleep hasn't really improved. Am i expecting too much too soon? Im 50 BTW. Thanks
