Drug Information:
There is a lack of consensus regarding whether black cohosh is useful for managing some symptoms of menopause. Some official groups state black cohosh can be considered as an alternative nonhormonal Therapy for vasomotor symptoms, whereas others state there is a lack of consistent evidence of benefit. Black cohosh extract is generally standardized to 2.5% of triterpene glycosides (ie, 1 mg/dose). Based on clinical use of commercial products, the current recommended black cohosh dose for management of symptoms of menopause is 40 to 80 mg/day, often in divided doses. Therapeutic effects generally begin after 2 weeks of treatment, with maximum effects usually occurring within 8 weeks. Learn more
