Cooperativa d’Apotecaris pharmacies are offering Veoza, priced at €74.31. However, it requires a doctor’s prescription and isn’t covered by public health insurance yet.

Clinical trials have shown Veoza’s effectiveness in reducing moderate to severe hot flashes. Patients who choose Veoza, after a doctor’s prescription, will undergo initial blood tests to check for liver function and potential infections. Regular blood tests are recommended every three months for the first nine months of use. It’s crucial to report any symptoms of liver damage, like nausea, vomiting, or skin/eye yellowing, to the doctor.
