Homeopathy and menopausal depression

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study carried out in Mexico City and published on Mar. 13 compared the effects of treatment of post-menopausal depression with fluoxetine and individualized homeopathic medicines.

The women, all diagnosed with moderate to severe depression, were treated for six weeks and then their progress was measured on three different depression scales.

Conclusions: “Homeopathy and fluoxetine are effective and safe antidepressants for climacteric women. Homeopathy and fluoxetine were significantly different from placebo in response definition only. Homeopathy, but not fluoxetine, improves menopausal symptoms scored by Greene Climacteric Scale.”
