Comment:
I researched this drug. The FDA barely approved its use last year, and they were most likely right--it's probably just about as good as taking a placebo, except a placebo doesn't have side effects.

Started taking the medication and within 3 weeks hot flashes disappeared. After 6 weeks hot flashes are back full force. Didn't gain any weight. Packaging is awful, crushed too many of the little expensive pills trying to get them out.
