Veozah: For Fewer Hot Flashes
Veozah is a new FDA-approved, hormone-free prescription drug that treats moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms (VMS) associated with menopause. VMS are the most common symptoms of menopause and include hot flashes, night sweats, and flushing.
Veozah is a neurokinin 3 (NK3) receptor antagonist. NK3 receptors are found in the hypothalamus, which is the part of the brain that regulates body temperature. By blocking NK3 receptors, Veozah helps to reduce the frequency and intensity of VMS.
Veozah is taken once daily as a tablet. It is generally well-tolerated and has been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials. The most common side effects of Veozah are headache, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, insomnia, and hot flashes. In order to take Veozah, patients are required to share a blood test to check liver function.
Benefits of Veozah
Veozah offers a number of benefits over other treatments for menopause VMS, including:
- It is hormone-free. This means that it does not carry the same risks as hormone-based therapies, such as increased risk of breast cancer and blood clots.
- It is effective. Veozah has been shown to be effective in reducing the frequency and intensity of VMS in clinical trials.
- It is generally well-tolerated. The side effects of Veozah are generally mild and transient.
Who Should Consider Veozah?
Veozah is a good option for women who are experiencing moderate to severe VMS associated with menopause and who are looking for a hormone-free treatment option. It is also a good option for women who cannot tolerate other treatments for VMS, such as hormone-based therapies.
