Estrogens treat schizophrenia

Estrogens treat schizophreniaExamination of the relationship between the level of female sex hormones and the occurrence of mental disorders in women began only in recent years. And although, according to Spanish researchers, the results of such studies still need to check, according to preliminary data, the estrogen can be helpful in the treatment of postpartum depression, as well as in the treatment of depression associated with menopause, especially developed after surgery. With regard to their use in schizophrenia, there have been several studies showing the possibility of using a similar hormonal therapy in women with schizophrenia during worsening of symptoms associated with fluctuating hormone levels during the menstrual cycle or when not curable disease. Moreover, it is possible the use of hormone replacement therapy in some women suffering from schizophrenia, in postmenopausal women. The study is published in the journal Actas Esp Psiquiatr, 2003..
