New research shows that peimenopausal and menopausal women may experience depression, due to moderate to severe hot flashes. More than 2,000 women were studied. Their age, body mass index and marital status were taken into account. The study showed that women with more intense hot flashes were more likely to get depressed than women with mild hot flashes. Dr. Susan G. Kornstein, executive director of the Women's Health Institute at the University of Virginia Commonwealth, stated: “The results of this study shed more light on the therapeutic findings, since both antidepressant medication and therapy with estrogens have the potential to improve hot flashes and mood.
