Insomnia and depression are common problems among menopausal women. New research conducted by UTMB’s Sara Nowakowski found that cognitive behavioral therapy not only eases insomnia but also lead to clinically meaningful improvements in depressive symptoms. “It’s not that surprising that an insomnia intervention would reduce insomnia, but the strong effects on depressive symptoms was surprising,” said Nowakowski. Study findings were presented at the North American Menopause society annual meeting in Philadelphia.
