News Flash about HOT FLASHES!

A new research study in JAMA, using Citalopram (an inexpensive generic medication) shows promise in reducing hot flashes in approximately half the women in the study.
Taking 20-40mg of Citalopram was effective and safe. This medication is an ‘anti-depressant’, but is being used for broader indications.
If you are having problems with this issue or know someone who is, and who does not want any hormone therapy, this is a worthwhile consideration. That said, it is not as good as hormone therapy in preventing hot flashes.
