Non-Hormonal Drug Treatments

When it comes to the menopause, HRT is often the first thing that springs to mind. But did you know that there are other, non-hormonal medications which can also help?

These medications can help with hot flushes, sweating, and changes in sleep patterns and mood. As always, you should discuss the best options for you with your own doctor.

The medications listed here are not suitable for everybody and it is important that any treatment plan is tailored to your personal needs.

Non-hormonal medications may be useful for you if:

  • You want help with menopausal symptoms
  • You want to avoid taking hormones
  • You have a risk factor that makes HRT unsafe
  • You are already taking one of these medications for another reason (in which case a change in dose may be all you need)
