Comment:
I have had severe hot flashes for years, and I was on HRT for a while with good results, but had to go off after developing serious side effects. I was very excited to try Brisdelle. Sadly, after 6 weeks, it has had absolutely no effect - no reduction in the number or severity of hot flashes. Nothing. And, It's expensive. I registered online and have a savings card that says "pay no more ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have taking Brisdelle now for 3 weeks. Before I started, I was having horrible hot flashes every single hour of the day. I was miserable. But most of all, I was not sleeping at all, which made me depressed and moody and ruined my day for months on end. It was absolutely terrible to be talking with patients at the hospital and break out into a drenching sweat. I can honestly say that since the 2n ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I would never recommend this medication to anyone - my GYN decided to try to wean me off of Premarin after 22 years due to the risk of breast cancer.

I promised to have 2 mammograms a year if he would. I s ... Show Full Comment
