ABSTRACT

Introduction: Menopause is universal reproductive phenomenon. Inclusion of clinical pharmacist in the healthcare team plays a pivotal role in health related problems and educational interventions to postmenopausal women, thereby decreasing the disease progression and improving patient outcome. Materials and Methods: A prospective, observational study was conducted for a period of 6 months from January to June 2016 in a tertiary care hospital. Data was collected from post menopausal women at age of 45 to 60 years using menopausal health questionnaire and menopausal rating scale (MRS). Results: A total of 104 women were enrolled for the study. The mean age was found to be 54.4 years. The mean age at menopause was 46.2 years. Among the study population post-menopausal related symptoms reported were hair loss 57 (55%), anemia 56(54%), back pain 53(51%), blood pressure 43(41%), etc. According to menopause rating scale most reported symptoms were joint and muscular discomfort 89(86%), sleep problems 68(65%) followed by hot flashes and sweating 57 (55%) and other problems. Conclusion: Patients were suffering from one or more number of menopausal symptoms which was misinterpreted as aging syndrome, so most of the symptoms were left unnoticed due to patient’s negligence.

Keywords: Menopause, Clinical Pharmacist, Symptoms, Aging syndrome.
