Menaupausal Women On Antidepressants May Be In Danger Of Having A Stroke

Menopausal Women On Antidepressants Are In Danger Of Having a Stroke

A study by researchers from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, sounded a warning for menopausal women who are subject to depression.
Depression is already a known risk factor for cardiovascular disease but it seems that taking antidepressants may significantly increase the risk of stroke for women who are postmenopausal.  The study is based on data from the Women’s Health Initiative which was responsible for proving that hormone replacement therapy significantly increased the risk of heart attack, stroke, cancer and death in postmenopausal women.
