The NHS says: “If HRT isn’t suitable for you, or you would prefer not to have it, your GP may recommend other medicines that can help, such as clonidine (a high blood pressure medicine) or certain antidepressants.
“These medicines can cause unpleasant side effects, so it’s important to discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor before starting treatment.”
The Mayo Clinic says: “Keep up with regular visits with your doctor for preventive health care and any medical concerns. Continue getting these appointments during and after menopause.
Preventive health care as you age may include recommended health screening tests, such as colonoscopy, mammography and triglyceride screening. Your doctor might recommend other tests and exams, too, including thyroid testing if suggested by your history, and breast and pelvic exams.”
