A New Treatment for Menopause May Be on the Way

There’s good news for women going through menopause, if you can wait three years or so.

Researchers say they’ve discovered that an experimental class of drugs that blocks a key receptor in the brain might be a new, effective treatment for common menopause symptoms.

However, the drug apparently causes health problems with the liver, so the drug’s manufacturer is reformulating the medication.

The manufacturer is scheduled to launch new clinical trials soon in the United States and Europe. It expects to bring the modified drug to market in about three years.

Menopause typically begins in women between 45 and 55 years of age, when estrogen levels naturally decline.
