I have been taking this now for 5 days. So far I like it. I sleep like a normal person. No Sweating like crazy. Also the hot flashes have been reduced greatly.

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.
