Has anyone treated hot flashes effectively, especially the sweating portion?
Effexor and Neurontin are options my RO gave me. Didn't know if one was better than the other for sweating.
I take both. Effexor is the more effective, reducing the frequency, duration and intensity of hot flashes by half. Still get them though. Usually I'm good during the daytime, but they start up in the evening. That's when I supplement with the Nurontin.
My RO offered me Megastrol, but my GP did not want me taking hormones due to possible blood clots.
The Effexor has helped tremendously with mood swings from the HT. Previously I was a mess.
