Since hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for treatment of hot flash has several complications and use of herbal drugs is a new way for treatment of this disorder the aim of this study was to survey the effect of Vitagnus( Vitex Agnus Castus) on treatment of hot flash. In a randomized controlled double blind clinical trial study the efficacy of Vitagus for reducing the hot flash was evaluate as compared to placebo among 46 menopause women who suffered from hot flash. Mean women's age was 51.4 and 52.3years in Vitagnus and plac2ebo groups, respectively. Reducing the severity, duration and frequency of hot flash regarding to Cooperman Index, was significant, before and in each stage (15 days & 30 days) after beginning of treatment in two groups (P < 0.05), but no significant difference was observed among the groups regarding their effects in every stage of treatment (P > 0.05) .We found that the Vitagnus is effective considerably in treatment of hot flash, but its effect is no more than the placebo.
