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.

It definitely works for hot flashes. I was having anywhere from 10-20 hot flashes a day. They were debilitating, my glasses fogged up, sweat was pouring down in-between my bra, the crooks of my arm were sweating. Just an FYI, it did not work right away, it took 2-3 weeks to build up in my system to be effective. There are days that I have no hot flashes at all. It takes about 1-2 weeks to leave m ...
