I started having hot flashes several times during the day (nothing like talking with a male co-worker and having your face turn beet red and sweat trickle down your face) and was up constantly with night sweats and then needing to get up and get water because I was so thirsty after sweating every hour or so.

I've been taking a 450 mg capsule twice a day for over a week. Hot flashes have nearly disappeared! I get a little warm now and then but nothing like the former intensity. I have not experienced any negative side effects. I am a big fan of black cohosh!!

I have been taking for about two weeks now and didn't link the bad headaches to the black cohosh until I came online today. Helps a lot with hot flashes but like others who have posted I can't handle the headaches . I'm going to try something else like soy.
