Donâ??t sweat it; new hot flash pill

Brisdelle is the first non-hormonal treatment for hot flashes.

Women who are going through menopause can have hot flashes for years. Some do not want to take the FDA approved treatments for hot flashes that contain estrogen, but now, the FDA has approved a new treatment that does not contain estrogen.

â??Brisdelle is the first non-hormonal treatment for hot flashes,â?? said Dr. Randy Tobler, Chief Medical Officer at Scotland County Hospital. â??It's really just slightly lower than the lowest dose of a popular antidepressant called Paxil. It's the generic for Paxil and it's just a slightly lower dose. Most gynecologists and primary care doctors have been using it for patients who canâ??t or wonâ??t take estrogen for some time but now the FDA has given its blessing.â??

Doctor Tobler said like all medicines, there are side effects and itâ??s best to talk it over with your doctor.
