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 have intractable hot flashes. After 2 weeks and absolutely NO improvement, my doctor added low dose prempro. I was on prempro for years and it worked like a charm. After 1 week taking both pills, still no improvement. I am thisclose to stopping. I am glad to see others are not finding this to be effective.

Comment:
I haven't taken this drug...I want to make that clear. I gave it 3 stars simply to fill in the required fields. But I have had a long haul with Zoloft, another SSRI, and have finally weaned myself from it. I saw this medication advertised and since I suffer from hot flashes looked it up.
