    I took Brisdelle for 3 weeks and experienced fewer hot flashes, however, the muscle stiffness, pain and fatigue are not worth it. Within 2days of starting it I began experiencing sore and stiff muscles. It steadily got worse, now to the point I am stiff when I sit for 20 minutes. I cannot risk it getting any worse. I am getting off it today! Not worth it.

    Update- after a few months on this medication I stopped taking it, so far so good as the hot flashes and night sweats have not returned. I stopped taking Brisdelle because I couldn't stand the weight gain, headaches, and I hated that it killed my libido. There ARE side effects.

    Comment:
    I have been taking Brisdelle for 8 months. My hot flashes reduced by maybe 10 %. The severity by about the same. As I felt the expense was not worth the small amount of gain, I decided to stop taking it. My health care professional said I would not need to taper off but after checking online I decided I should. It's been 5 weeks and my symptoms of withdrawal are pretty severe. Terrible ... Show Full Comment
