The anti-seizure medication Neurontin (chemical name: gabapentin) has been used in the past to provide relief. Research has found that women taking Neurontin can experience a 50-60% reduction in hot flashes after the first 4 weeks. However, most women aren’t interested in it because of the risk of side effects, such as dizziness, tiredness, and swelling in the hands and feet.
