I had a surgical menopause (hysterectomy) and now take Estrace nightly to avoid all those symptoms.
The disease itself can cause me to be quite anxious and pissy for a lack of better words. I suffer with anxiety related to my Crohns and use Xanax myself, I only use it on those bad times. I only use it maybe 3-4 times a month. Hope that helps a little.
