Took Black Cohosh for 1 week- i pill/day and ended up with Jaundice and on LFTs were thru the roof. Ended up on the liver transplant unit in London. No transplant need but liver failure was very close. Now I have autoimmune hepatitis due to the side effects of Black Cohosh.

How sad. Sad indeed to spend SO much for this Black Cohosh product and for it to be totally worthless. TOTALLY WORTHLESS.

EVEN THO IT HELPED WITH THE HOT FLASHED AFTER ONLY TWO DAYS. I STARTED GETTING ARM PAINS THAT WENT AWAY WHEN I DISCONTINUED USE. I HAVE HAD BREAST CANCER AND A HEART ATTACK IN THE PAST AND HOT FLASHES FOR 10 YEARS.

I started having hot flashes every 20 min. with embarrassing sweat running down my face. Also my clothes would be drenched especially in the middle of the night. I started taking Black Cohosh and after 2 weeks everything is back to normal. Please just stick with it and don't give up, everyone is different but it takes a week or two,you can have your life without hot flashes-it works!
