Menopause Dr. Stratton Douglas

MENOPAUSE - can affect women for years, sometimes decades, often causing disabling symptoms.

For women with aggravating symptoms, I recommend prescription medications such as gabapentin and those that target serotonin levels (for example, citalopram) and/or clonidine at bedtime.

The OTC remedies worth researching are black cohosh, soy phytoestrogens, licorice root, dong quai, melatonin, pycnogenolan, and DHEA.

I have found that even very low doses of clonidine reduce hot flashes, night sweats, and other symptoms
