I can't take HRT so this is what my Dr prescribed to me for my night sweats/hot flashes. I just started taking it last night, and it looks like in the studies I've found quickly searching online it is about as successful as HRT, but I was wondering if any of you took it and what you thought of it? Did it help? I am on a low dose of 37.5mg tapering up (if needed) every 4-7 days.
I have taken Effexor in the past and I’m now on the next generation, Vyvanse. I take it for depression, though. Interesting about the HRT aspect.
One thing to be careful with Effexor, you’ll need to take it at about the same time EVERY day. If you skip dosages, it can make you feel sick (I would vomit if I got off schedule). Also, weaning off of it can be hard, too.
Good luck!! I hope this works for you!! (And now I’m wondering if the Vyvanse will keep me from the dreaded night sweats and hot flashes when I hit menopause…)
