  • 초록

    Recent Korean statistics show that a Korean woman can now expect to live until her mid-80s, which implies living at least one-third of her life after menopause. The menopausal transition is typically marked by intense hormonal fluctuations, accompanied by sleep disturbance, vasomotor symptoms(e.g., hot flashes, night sweats), increased risk for osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and developing depression as well as mood disturbances. These symptoms can affect a woman's quality of life negatively. Therefore, a comprehensive understanding of the accurate detection and appropriate treatment of various menopause-related symptoms including depression in the menopausal transitions and postmenopause is mandatory. This review primarily focused on the current knowledge about the treatment of menopause-related depression.
