Watch for Intrarosa and Osphena for Menopausal Vaginal Symptoms
Intrarosa (prasterone) and Osphena (ospemifene) will be new Rx options to treat vaginal symptoms in menopausal patients.
Intrarosa is a vaginal ovule inserted nightly...and Osphena is a daily oral tab. Either one costs about $50/month.
Think of these as alternatives to low-dose vaginal estrogens (Estring, Premarin Cream, etc) to help reduce vaginal symptoms caused by menopause...such as vaginal dryness and pain during sex.
