After 3 weeks, no effect on hot flashes. It may have calmed down my fussy bladder but I also seem to be dropping things. The packaging is a complete pain in the neck, as you can squash capsules wrestling them out of all that packaging.

Comment:
I was prescribed this medicine to help with Hot Flashes and Night Sweats as a replacement to low dose Estrogen. I have taken it for 30 days and it has diminished only slightly the hot flashes and night sweats. It does not work for me and it is expensive. So I am discontinuing. I also feel the packaging is overboard and difficult...it's not made of gold.

After 6 years I have been on Premarin and my GYN decided to switch me to this medication and it's been a nightmare. I have been on it for a month and that's a month to long. The all day hot flashes and night sweats are horrible and my pharmacist said it's an anti depressant medication which I have never needed. I am going back on Premarin and taking my chances

Comment:
Can't get the packaging open without mauling the capsule, and I have a terrible time getting the pill down. I'm guessing because its such a small lightweight capsule. It is helping with the hot flashes and night sweats. so I guess I will continue to fight with the ridiculous amount of packaging and the swallowing problem.Any suggestions out there ??

I have gained a ton of weight. I'm so mad. I love this medication because my hot flashes are gone. I may stop taking it and see how it goes.
