    Update- I am at month 8 now, taking brisdelle every other night. At month 7 I started having mild hot flashes(maybe 1or 2 a day). At month 8 the weight came, and it came fast. I exercise intensively, and eat healthy. the weight came anyway. It was almost seamed like my brain somehow signaled by body to bulk up.

    Brisdelle was effective for 2-3 months; after that, the hot flashed came back. Furthermore, I had moderate to severe side effect while taking Brisdelle; sweeting, nausea, weight gain. I switched to Lexapro 5mg and all the side effect are gone, plus the hot flashed. I am paying a copayment ofis 2.5 $ now; when I was taking Brisdelle, I was paying 60$ copayment. Do the math.

    I had hot flashes so bad I thought I needed to go to the loony bin. It was horrific all day and worst at night. I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown. My dr asked me to try Brisdelle and I tell you that within two weeks I had absolutely NO hot flashes. No side effects and this was a God send for me. I was at my wits end and I have been on other HRT's but this is the only RX that CO ... Show Full Comment

    I was taken off my hormone meds for hot flashes and it was recommended to try Brisdelle for the hot flashes. When I started the meds my side effect was dizziness/vertigo then it eventually when away. The hot flashes were less frequent in the beginning a few times a day

    I took this for relief from frequent hot flashes. Within a week, I went from having 15-20 episodes a day to about five. I experienced no unpleasant side effects, UNTIL I decided to stop taking it after about 18 months. First I cut back to taking one pill every two days and after ten days I stopped taking it completely. I have not had a dose in six days and the vertigo is still terrible. There ha ...
