TREATMENT FOR VASOMOTOR SYMPTOMS

BIJUVA™ has been US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)–approved as the first oral treatment for moderate-to-severe vasomotor symptoms due to menopause in women with a uterus. BIJUVA offers a combination of bioidentical estradiol to reduce moderate-to-severe hot flashes and bioidentical progesterone to reduce the risk for endometrial hyperplasia.

TherapeuticsMD says that BIJUVA will be available Spring 2019 and is a proven treatment option for women who are experiencing bothersome symptoms of menopause, with clinical trial data demonstrating a statistically significant reduction in both the frequency and severity of moderate-to-severe vasomotor symptoms. The manufacturer also says that BIJUVA is developed to be identical in molecular structure to the hormones already produced by the body and is designed to help women restore what is lost during menopause.

BIJUVA estradiol and progesterone combination (1 mg/100 mg) will be available in capsule form.

LILETTA USE EXTENDED

The FDA has approved LILETTA® (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) 52 mg for 5-year use. This approval is based on efficacy and safety data from ACCESS IUS, the largest ongoing intrauterine device (IUD) Phase 3 clinical trial in the United States. Previously, LILETTA was indicated for use up to 4 years.

LILETTA continues to be greater than 99% effective in preventing pregnancy in a broad range of women, regardless of age, race, body mass index, or parity, according to Allergan and Medicines360. The extended duration and proven efficacy across a diverse population enables more women in the United States to obtain effective birth control, as the IUD is now available for a low cost at public health clinics.
