    I have been taking this for 7 months. At first it worked great in reducing hot flashes and night sweats. But they have been getting worse again. Since I have been on it I had many days of feeling lethargic and tired, unmotivated, etc. Since hot flashes are returning I am stopping it. Hopefully will not experience bad withdrawal symptoms as some have described here. First day off of it I have felt ... Show Full Comment

    When I first stated using Brisdelle I thought it was the greatest thing ever. However, I immediately started gaining weight. I use this medication for 3 months and gain 12 pounds. I stopped taking it primarily because of the weight gain but also because it gave me a terrible "hangover" every morning. It would take me until noon some days to fully wake up. I felt disconnected. After ... Show Full Comment

    I had terrible night sweats, having to change 2-3 times per night and averaging 4 hours sleep per night. After taking Brisdelle for 6 weeks my night sweats improved significantly. Now having taken it for 6 months they have dramatically improved. As have my moods, much more even and not so many swings or intense emotions. I highly recommend this drug.

    Update- I am at month 8 now, taking brisdelle every other night. At month 7 I started having mild hot flashes(maybe 1or 2 a day). At month 8 the weight came, and it came fast. I exercise intensively, and eat healthy. the weight came anyway. It was almost seamed like my brain somehow signaled by body to bulk up. I also noted at month 8, my resting heartbeat went down by about 8 points, which means ... Show Full Comment

    Brisdelle was effective for 2-3 months; after that, the hot flashed came back. Furthermore, I had moderate to severe side effect while taking Brisdelle; sweeting, nausea, weight gain. I switched to Lexapro 5mg and all the side effect are gone, plus the hot flashed. I am paying a copayment ofis 2.5 $ now; when I was taking Brisdelle, I was paying 60$ copayment. Do the math.
