Not only medications: Treatment for gender identity disorder may include medications such as hormone therapy, but much more is involved. There needs to be extensive psychiatric evaluation first, as well as much discussion and talk therapy. Depression and anxiety are very common components too, and appropriate medications are used to help. Gender issues may persist despite hormones and even surgery. Support is needed.
