Welcome To HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
These medicines definitely have there side effects but it's not that everyone gets it.

2. Imovane: is a drug used mostly for sleeping issues and anxiety. It can cause dry mouth , impaired concentration as well as weight gain.

3. Femosten conti : A hormonal replacement therapy. A lot of side effects it has like weight gain, thrombosis, increase risk of heart attack, stroke.

4. Lexapro : SSRI group Anti depressant which causes weight gain, cardiac issues , increased sleepiness, impaired attention.

Brief Answer:
Supplements.

Detailed Answer:
Hi. See Menopausal symptoms are faced by each and every woman. Some feel them in a non troubling way and some get troubled.
So decision of taking hormonal replacement therapy (HRT) is based on you and your treating doctor. If you have any cardiac issues or you are overweight then you should avoid HRT as far as possible.
These symptoms are just transient and if you can cope that's the best.
I personally prefer to give my patients Soy isoflavones and multivitamin compositions. A very famous and commonly available one is Menopace ISO.
I get very good results with it.
You can discuss with your doctor to switch you on this.
If you have any further query, please ask me.
