In brief: Drugs and menopause

You can certainly speak to your provider and discuss this issue.
You need to be able to define the problems menopause is challenging you with. Menopause cannot be treated, however, many of the uncomfortable effects can be managed. It appears that you are taking your medication to assist you with sleeping. There are drugs that may better target your depression and still help with sleep.
