How does VEOZAH work?

Unlike anything else, VEOZAH directly blocks a source of hot flashes and night sweats. It works in your hypothalamus—the area of your brain that controls body temperature.

Science has revealed that VMS—also known as Vasomotor Symptoms—the medical name for hot flashes and night sweats—due to menopause isn’t caused by declining estrogen alone.


In fact, we know that a brain chemical called neurokinin B, or NKB for short, is a trigger of VMS. NKB is found in the temperature control center of your brain, the hypothalamus.


When NKB binds to the receptor in the hypothalamus during menopause it triggers hot flashes and night sweats.


VEOZAH is the first prescription treatment of its kind for moderate to severe Vasomotor Symptom (VMS) due to menopause. 


VEOZAH is designed to directly block NKB from binding to the receptor. This reduces hot flashes and night sweats due to menopause.

VEOZAH is the first and only prescription treatment designed to specifically block neurokinin B (NKB). NKB is a chemical that binds to a receptor in your brain, triggering hot flashes and night sweats due to menopause.
