Study: Pain Med Could Help Treat Hot Flashes In PMS

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — An old drug may become a new treatment for menopause.

A new study found Gabapentin, a drug used to treat seizures and pain, may help cool hot flashes in post-menopausal women.

Researchers found an extended release version of the drug decreased the frequency and severity of the flashes.

The drug could become the first approved non-hormonal treatment for menopause.
