    I began taking 20 mg. a.m. and p.m. about 3 months ago. Got relief within a couple of weeks and plan to continue- no adverse side effects. I'll have an occasional warm flash/ night sweat but much less than before. I'm 73 and this began after my doctor advised me to discontinue estrogen patches-which I'd used for years to help prevent osteoporosis. Very thankful I tried this.

    Started taking this for intense hot flashes, night sweats and sleeplessness. It worked for all of those BUT after about a month I have the heaviest period of my life, with extreme bleeding and clottingnwhich lasted 18 days. Became very anemic, almost needing a blood transfusion heart racing, headache and exhaustion. I will not risk throwing my hormones into chaos and will just deal with the hot fl ... Show Full Comment

    Hot flashes, night sweats and sleep disturbances have increased in frequency and strength. What has been unnerving though, is the pounding heart rate even while resting.
