The purpose of this study was to determine whether psychological support associated with hormone replacement therapy (HRT) was more beneficial than replacement therapy alone. Our findings showed that HRT alone was more effective against vasomotor symptoms than HRT with psychological treatment (PT). While the combination of both treatment modalities (HRT + PT) was more effective against insomnia, nervousness, melancholy, fatigue, palpitations, and vertigo. Hormonal treatment alone and HRT with psychological treatment had little effect against paresthesia or tingling. Neither HRT alone nor HRT with psychological treatment was effective against joint and muscle pain or headache.
