hot flashes

T-Baby Member Posts: 1


I have been cancer free for almost 4 years, my cancer was estrogen positive and I have had Chemo and an Oophorectomy.  I have been on Effexor XR 225mg nightly the whole time.  I have spoken with my doctor and we weened me off of the med. but immediately the hot flashes began.  I have started back on 75mg but I was wondering if anyone had tried anything else that worked?

    Just wanting to welcome you

    Just wanting to welcome you T-Baby.  I don't have hot flashes, but, am hoping you can find something that will help you.  Didn't your oncologist have any other medications to help?

    Good luck,
