Novel Drug for Hot Flashes

Menopause is a natural change that occurs in a woman’s life when her ovaries stop producing estrogen and progesterone. Typically, this happens between the ages of 45 and 55. Menopause is generally defined as not having a period for 12 consecutive months. Hot flashes, which affect 80% of women, are one of the most common symptoms of menopause and can significantly disrupt a woman’s life.
