In brief: Yes

Alternative to hormones? Soy products have been shown to help with some of the symptoms of menopause.
Anti-depressants and Clonidine can help. Prevention of bone loss includes adequate calcium, vitamin d and weight bearing exercises. Compounded estriol creams can help with dryness. Really depends on what symptoms you are trying to treat.
