Dr. Sharon Orrange - February 13, 2014

Is there anything new for menopause?

Well, yes there is. 2014 brought some new guidelines by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists for the treatment of symptoms of menopause: hot flashes and vaginal dryness/atrophy.

No new risks or dangers.

The good news is the guidelines didn’t raise any risks or dangers that we didn’t already know, for the medications or treatments we have been using. See More

Brisdelle: The First Non-Hormone Treatment for Menopause Symptoms

The GoodRx Pharmacist - July 03, 2013

Brisdelle (paroxetine 7.5mg) was just approved by the FDA as the first non-hormonal treatment for hot flashes associated with menopause. It is a low dose formulation of the antidepressant Paxil (paroxetine).

Traditionally menopause symptoms have been treated using conventional hormone-replacement therapy (HRT). This can mean an estrogen-only treatment, or estrogen combined with progesterone. There are oral options (Premarin, estradiol), topical options (Estrace, Vagifem), transdermal patches (Climara, Vivelle-Dot), and compounded products, amongst others. See More
