Okay maybe it is too soon for me to comment. However, I have been taking this for my Hot Flashes for week in a half now and still no improvement. As a matter of fact, yesterday I had my first ever panic attack and another one today...since I have been on this medicine. I have never had panic attacks before, and after reading that this is one of the side affects I am pretty sure that is what I am h ... Show Full Comment

I went to see my Dr. Just so she could prescribe this. I have been having hot flashes for 10 years now. The last few years they have been pretty severe and frequent and I wasn't able to get a good night's sleep without waking about every hour to hour and a half with horrible sweats and discomfort. By the end of the work week I would end up with headaches and feeling worn out. I was hop ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Opting for a non-hormonal treatment I tried Brisdelle. I was horrified at the cost, particularly since the medication is actually Paxil. It was our family's most expensive medication (husband on lots!). Generic Paxil costs about $10/month; Brisdelle $140.
