It took almost 3 weeks for the hot flashes to subside, but is working great and can sleep throughout the night. Had a hard time at first locating pharmacy that carried/stocked Birsdelle and have had issues getting refills, even with advance notice of refills. Hate the packaging as well.

This medication started to work in one week. Hot flashes decreased 80% with less intensity. However, after two months, the hot flashes are back full force. I continue to take it but I will check back with my gyn to find another treatment. The packaging is impossible. Difficult to remove pill and they almost always get crushed.

Initially had complete relief from my hot flashes after one week! I was ecstatic! Six weeks later they are back! And getting progressively worse , also bad insomnia. I hate the packaging also. It's so excessive h and the pills are always crushing! Going to talk to my doc, but think I'll need to find an alternative :(

this medication made me behave in a strange and peculiar way. It's hard to explain, but I certainly wasn't myself and I couldn't wait to discontinue use.
