Hot flashes are a common perimenopausal symptom, and
are frequently mentioned during office visits with women going
through menopause. This document presents a general overview of
hot flashes, as well as some options for treatment. The brochure
begins with an explanation of what hot flashes are, and then goes
into treatment options grouped by severity of symptoms. For mild
hot flashes, diet and lifestyle changes are recommended. For
moderate to severe hot flashes, women can try herbal remedies
(though scientific evidence proving efficacy is lacking), or may
talk to their doctor about prescription treatment options.
