Bioidenticals – When Things Go Wrong

It is important to know that Hormone Replacement Therapy may throw the hormonal system out of balance.  Many women do not know this is possible.  In many women this does not happen.  What you want to look for is after 3 months of being on these substances, do you start to feel worse. 

Did hormonal symptoms appear from the 3 to  5 month period?  Did anxiety or depression occur after 3 months of taking these substances? 

Psychiatric Medications for Hormonal Imbalances

The number one caution in this situation is to medicate a women with SSRI’s or anti-anxiety medications from hormonal imbalances caused by bioidentical hormones or hormone therapy. This makes the clinical picture much more complex.  Though these medications may help with the anxiety and depression, it does not correct the cause of the biology or physiology of the body.

Dysregulation of Bioidenticals Hormones:

Too much estrogen or other hormones in the body may have a negative effect on the cells causing symptoms too much and also too little of the hormone.  This can be confusing to the patient and the doctor.  The clinic encourages patients to read about the possible effects of hormonal therapies.
