Sleep disorder: Can certainly be related to menopause, however, you should be examined and checked for other issues including anxiety, depression and/or mixed mood disorder. I suggest melatonin at bedtime until you are evaluated by your physican.

Menopause: Menopause can be relatively uneventful for some women, while others experience serious disruption! Inadequate sleep and resulting deprivation can be difficult to live with. Some women use hormone replacement therapy to help with bothersome symptoms of menopause, ideally for a short period of time. Herbal remedies may include Damiana, Black walnut and Black Cohosh (careful with Cohosh)
