Can Hormone Replacement Therapy Treat Insomnia?

A dad and his daughter stay up after bedtime reading.

Feeling exhausted during the day can sometimes be blamed on staying up late or experiencing stress at work or in a relationship. But chronic sleeplessness is a symptom associated with menopause and andropause and can be treated with hormone replacement therapy at our clinics in Baton Rouge and near New Orleans.

Before recommending hormone replacement therapy, it’s important first to rule out potential underlying conditions that could be causing chronic feelings of fatigue and listlessness. Effectively treating insomnia involves zeroing in on a specific cause or causes. If insomnia is a primary reason for fatigue—along with brain fog and other fatigue-related symptoms—then low-dose hormone replacement therapy can improve the quality of your sleep.

Low testosterone levels in men can cause insomnia and sleep apnea, and combining a customized testosterone replacement therapy plan with lifestyle changes can improve sleep. Balanced estrogen levels can help women fall asleep faster, boost REM sleep, and minimize nighttime awakenings.

If you’re feeling tired much of the time and believe it’s related to hormonal imbalances, request a consultation with one of our hormone specialists using the online form or call us at one of our 3 locations: (225) 960-1580 (Baton Rouge), (225) 900-7009 (Denham Springs), or (504) 252-9579 (Metairie).
