What is Evamist?

Evamist is a prescription medication that comes in the form of a spray. Evamist is typically sprayed once a day onto the forearm area to help reduce the symptoms of menopause, particularly hot flashes. It is categorized as a transdermal spray because it is sprayed directly on the skin. Evamist contains estradiol, a type of estrogen, which is a female hormone that helps to control various body functions and reactions. During menopause, women's estrogen levels can drop, which can produce some unpleasant symptoms, including hot flashes, mood changes and sweating.
