Stay Alert for the New Endometriosis Med, Elagolix (Orilissa)

New Rx elagolix (Orilissa, or-ih-LIH-sah) may pop up on home med lists of women suffering from endometriosis.

These women have endometrial tissue that grows outside of the uterus...which can lead to dysmenorrhea, pelvic pain, painful intercourse and possibly infertility.

Expect most women to take NSAIDs for dysmenorrhea...plus a combined hormonal contraceptive to reduce endometrial tissue, which may ease menstrual and NON-menstrual pain.
