Black cohosh didn't work for me. Progesterone cream only works for my hot flashes. Get the book What Your Doctor Won't Tell You About Menopause written by an authority on menopause.

I took cohosh for years but decided to take a break for a year. My Nike fuel band was recording 125-150 steps each of my restless nights. (My husband gets 25'steps or less). I started black cohosh again and my steps are down to 50 nightly with cohosh. I believe I was having hot flashes, but mild enough not to be totally wet so I was not sure, now, no hot flashes and peaceful sleep.

Nothing has eliminated my hot flashes but Black Cohosh has at least lessened the amount and intensity of them. I have been taking it - one tablet- at night for over 5 years and until I read some things online today, never knew that they recommend taking only for one year. I plan to begin weaning myself off of them, but when I've tried before the hot flashes came back with a vengeance.
