Conclusions

Gabapentin represents a potentially beneficial treatment for VMS in postmenopausal women who are contraindicated to HT or who prefer alternatives. Future studies should investigate the lowest effective dose of gabapentin to minimize adverse effects. Management of menopausal symptoms should be individualized and address patients' aims and treatment preferences.
