Hi ladies! I’ve been doing tons of research to gear up for my next gyno appointment. I’ve been suffering badly for over a year. 41 and too young for this s**t! This next appointment, I am not taking no, or deal with the symptoms for an aswer! So, I am on an AD (ssri) for peri anxiety. To “boost my serotonin” as my primary dr put it. I know it is my hormones going haywire, but, needed to do something to get me by until I see my new gyno. I just learned that an AD’s job is to redistribute serotonin in our brains not produce it. Estrogen produces serotonin in a woman. Therefore, if you are estrogen deficient an AD is not going to be optimally effective. Eureeka!
Do you ladies know anything about this? I think inevitably I will ask about going back on a higher dose BCP and stay on the AD.
