I was not sleeping at night, hot flashes would wake me up. First 40mg dose stopped flashes that I was having every 45 mins. to several hours in between and I had my first very good night sleep! It seems to work with my constitution. I am thrilled.

Comment:
I have been taking black cohosh for 1 week now. I take 40mg 3 times per day. I have noticed that the hot flashes are less intense now. I have been able to get a good night sleep for the past 3 days. Prior to taking black cohosh, the hot flashes were so intense that they would wake me throughout the night. Now I'm beginning to sleep longer throughout the night.

Hot flashes due to a female hormone shot of Lupron prior to radiation therapy for prostate cancer. After treatment I tried black cohosh for a few weeks but it had absolutely no effect.

Comment:
I'm in peri-menopause and was having hot flashes/sweats at night. Started taking this supplement, combined with soy in an Estroven product, and noticed improvements within two weeks. It's been 6 months and the hot flashes are gone.
