Housecall For Health: Relief For Hot Flashes
Most menopausal women suffer with hot flashes. Now there may be relief. In a surprise decision, the Food and Drug Administration has approved a new medicinal treatment for the bothersome symptom.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon has more in this edition of “Housecall For Health”:
The first non-hormonal drug to treat hot flashes has been approved by the FDA. The drug will be sold under the name Brisdelle, and is a low dose form of the antidepressant known as Paxil. Seventy five percent of menopausal women suffer from hot flashes, and other FDA approved products for the condition contain estrogen and progestin, which could increase the risk of breast cancer.
