BOCA RATON, Fla. — TherapeuticsMD, an innovative women’s healthcare company, announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Imvexxy (estradiol vaginal inserts) for the treatment of moderate-to-severe dyspareunia (vaginal pain associated with sexual activity), a symptom of vulvar and vaginal atrophy (VVA), due to menopause. Imvexxy is the only product in its therapeutic class to offer a 4 mcg and 10 mcg dose, the 4 mcg representing the lowest approved dose of vaginal estradiol available.
“Imvexxy is a bio-identical vaginal estrogen product that offers a fraction of the estrogen contained in the average doses of many existing products currently on the market,” said Brian Bernick, chief clinical officer of TherapeuticsMD. “Imvexxy is the only product specifically designed to be applicator-free. It dissolves completely without mess or additional clean-up, and can be used anytime of day. It allows women the freedom to immediately return to their normal daily activities. Studies showed that, in patients who used Imvexxy, systemic absorption of estradiol remained within postmenopausal range.”
“We are excited to bring Imvexxy to market as TherapeuticsMD’s first FDA-approved drug as we strive to be the premier Women’s Health Company,” said Robert Finizio, chief executive officer of TherapeuticsMD. “Imvexxy reflects our long-standing corporate mission and commitment to health solutions that women want, based on the concepts of medical need, efficacy, safety, simplicity, and affordability. Imvexxy will be offered at a price in parity with other products that have been on the market for 10 to 30 years. By ensuring patients can access Imvexxy at an affordable price, TherapeuticsMD is doing the right thing for women.”
