There are a number of over the counter medications aimed at relieving symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, mood swings, or night sweats.
Most over the counter medications are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration which means they might not have undergone clinical testing and are not regulated for effectiveness.
Ask your pharmacist for advice. Choice a well known brand with positive feedback and check with your doctor before taking it.
