Can you tell me if bellamine is useful for hot flashes?

Thanks for your question. The Mayo Clinic says because of its sedating qualities, bellamine isn't recommended as the first line of defense to treat hot flashes. For this reason, other drugs, such as estrogen, some serotonin reuptake inhibitors, gabapentin or clonidine — are often used first before Bellamine.

For more, visit the Mayo Clinic's Web site.
