background

I have been having heavy, frequent periods for a while that have now changed to light, and few and far between. I also have just started having night sweats and hot flashes, coupled with neck ache and waking up at night. I guessed I was starting menopause, although partly in denial. However, I've recently been suffering with acute anxiety for no apparent reason. Yes, my life is a little stressful at times but no more than usual. In fact, life has never been better and yet I'm very tense and anxious. Is this another symptom? My doctor has prescribed Citalopram, but I'm wondering, if it's menopause ,should I be looking at something other than antidepressants? I'm 52 by the way and don’t feel at all depressed.
