Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • I have been told by a pharmacist that I should not take any peri/menopausal supplements while on my anti-depressants. As my menopausal symptoms increased to the point of affecting my daily activites, I had decided to take Estroven OTC anyway (I had not talked to my doctor about my 'amendment'). My night sweats were surprisingly under control (that night), however, I find myself to be EXTREMELY tired during the day (constantly feeling the need to nap). I had only been on the Penicillin for a couple of days, so I'm not sure if the fatigue is from this or a combination of all of the drugs I am taking...still looking for answers.
