changes in the meds used to treat menopausal symptoms (hot flashes, etc)

You may see changes in the meds used to treat menopausal symptoms (hot flashes, etc)...due to new guidelines.

Estrogen still works best to reduce menopausal symptoms. The key is to use the lowest dose and shortest duration.

Watch for mix-ups among dosage forms. Estrogen comes in an oral tablet (Estrace, etc)...topical gel (EstroGel, etc)...transdermal patch (Climara, etc)...vaginal cream (Estragyn, etc)...vaginal tablet (Vagifem, etc)...and vaginal ring (Estring, etc).
