Hi, all. Mel here with more questions! Just had my 5th chemo out of 6 on Thursday and when I saw my onco told her about these hot flashes and night sweats I've been experiencing. I am 46 and haven't had a period since my 2nd chemo. Anyway, she perscribed Megestrol 20 mg. daily. I am on my 4th day . Does anyone out there know anything about this drug and if it helps at all? I haven't slept the last 2 nights. I am constantly flashing hot to cold throughout the day and night. Also, if anyone has any ideas for relief it would be greatly appreciated!!
