Medications that lower blood pressure may lessen the frequency and severity of hot flashes. They change how the blood vessels respond to the brain’s command to give off heat quickly. These medications must be adjusted carefully by your doctor, so they are not used that frequently. However, they can be helpful if you have high blood pressure that requires treatment—the control of hot flashes can be a side benefit. Examples include:

  • Catapres-TTS (chemical name: clonidine)
  • Aldomet (chemical name: methyldopa)
