Hot tip about hot flashes & hot flash medication

Did you hear the medical information published in April 2015 about menopause? The results of this national, multi-centered study showed that the majority of women had hot flashes that lasted for over 7 years.*


If your hot flashes are bothering you, talk with your doctor about getting relief with Brisdelle.


Brisdelle is the only FDA-approved non-hormonal for moderate to severe hot flashes associated with menopause.


WHY CHOOSE A NON-HORMONAL MEDICINE THAT'S FDA APPROVED?

Until Brisdelle was available, the only FDA-approved treatment options for hot flashes were hormone therapies. That limited your choices.


With Brisdelle, you can do something different. Brisdelle is the only non-hormonal prescription medication proven to reduce moderate to severe hot flashes during menopause — so they are less frequent and less intense. And the nightly dose provides 24-hour relief.


WHAT MAKES BRISDELLE® DIFFERENT FROM OVER-THE-COUNTER, HERBAL SUPPLEMENTS FOR HOT FLASHES?

For starters, the FDA has not approved any over-the-counter products as being safe and effective to treat hot flashes. So, herbal supplements — such as black cohosh or soy — are not FDA-approved as safe and effective medicines; nor do the medical experts of the North American Menopause Society recommend them. Matter of fact, up until 2013, the only FDA-approved treatment options for hot flashes were prescription hormone therapies.


But with Brisdelle, you have a choice of treatment options since Brisdelle is the only non-hormonal prescription medicine that was both specifically designed and proven to reduce moderate to severe hot flashes due to menopause.


HOT FLASHES: HOW BAD ARE THEY?

Hot flashes — that feeling when you’re suddenly overheating and sweating — are annoying and uncomfortable. Yet each of us deals with hot flashes differently. So, it’s important to talk to your doctor about hot flashes.


Hot flashes are sudden feelings of intense heat in the body, that are experienced by 3 out of 4 women during menopause*.


Moderate hot flashes cause a sensation of heat with sweating, but you are able to continue activity.


Severe hot flashes cause a sensation of heat with sweating, and cause you to stop activity.


Brisdelle® is proven to reduce hot flashes — both the number and their severity — during menopause.

What is Brisdelle?


  • Non-hormonal: The only non-hormonal prescription treatment proven to reduce moderate to severe hot flashes during menopause — so they are less frequent and less intense.
  • FDA-approved: Brisdelle was proven safe and effective when used as directed, in well-controlled clinical trials with more than 1,100 menopausal women suffering from moderate to severe hot flashes.
  • Taken once each night: Just one 7.5 mg capsule taken at bedtime with or without food provides 24-hour relief.


HOW SOON WILL BRISDELLE® WORK?

It’s important to give Brisdelle a full 4-week trial period to determine whether or not it may be right for you. In clinical trials, Brisdelle was first evaluated at week 4 and was shown to provide relief from moderate to severe hot flashes so they are less frequent and less intense.


Everyone’s body is different and responds to medicine differently. So give prescription Brisdelle time and take it the way your doctor prescribed. If you have questions about when Brisdelle might start working, please talk with your doctor.


IS BRISDELLE® AN ANTIDEPRESSANT?

Brisdelle is in a class of medicines that are called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). FDA approved Brisdelle for one thing only: to treat moderate to severe hot flashes due to menopause. No other SSRI is approved to treat moderate to severe hot flashes. Other SSRIs, however, are approved by the FDA to treat depression and some psychiatric conditions. Brisdelle is not.


WILL BRISDELLE® GET RID OF MY HOT FLASHES COMPLETELY?

Brisdelle may not completely get rid of hot flashes, but it should reduce the frequency and severity of them. While some patients may start to have relief sooner, it is important to give Brisdelle a full 4-week trial. During clinical trials, women taking Brisdelle were first evaluated at the end of 4 weeks. That was when women taking Brisdelle had significant relief in reducing both the frequency and severity of moderate to severe hot flashes.
