  • Several studies show beneficial effects of estrogen treatment in women with anxiety and depressive symptoms. Recent data indicate that the estrogen receptor (ER) beta appears to be a major mediator of estrogenic effects in depression and anxiety.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A healthcare professional should be consulted before taking any drug, changing any diet or commencing or discontinuing any course of treatment.[webmd.com]
