Volunteers for a new Hot Flash research study
Coastal Carolina Research Center is conducting a new clinical research study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an investigational non-hormonal, herbal medication for the treatment of hot flashes. Hot flashes vary at different times but may significantly effect a women’s quality of life. This study is testing a “botanical extract” derived from 22 traditional Chinese ingredients. It is in powder form and is mixed with at least 2 ounces of water to drink. Volunteers will be asked to assess whether is helps reduce the number and severity of hot flashes during the course of the study.
