Results of our survey on nonhormonal treatment for menopause symptoms

by Margery Gass | May 14, 2013
Do women really need more nonhormonal options to treat hot flashes? Last February we asked you and the answer was a resounding yes. In addition, we learned that most of you had already tried to combat your symptoms without hormones. No wonder you said you need something more!

Here are the results of our poll, which we presented to the Food and Drug Administration Advisory Committee in April.

  • 88.6% of respondents experienced hot flashes
  • 49.4% of hot flashes were moderate, 34.2% were severe, and 16.3% were mild
  • 89.6% of respondents believed women need a nonhormonal prescription therapy for menopause symptoms
  • When asked why, 84.9% responded that it was because traditional hormone therapy (HT) was unsafe, 29.8% because they had experienced an adverse reaction to traditional HT, and 37.6% had a contraindication to HT
  • Women had previously tried lifestyle changes (71.5%), over-the-counter products (52.8%), HT (41.3%), compounded HT (12.9%), other prescription drugs (10.8%), or nothing (10.7%) to combat their symptoms
Thanks to all who responded to the survey!
