    My dr. just put me on some hopeing to illiminate my hot flashes/night sweats. After my last period which was in May they have been coming fast and furious. I wasn't getting any sleep. She didn't do any blood tests or saliva tests. She ordered the cream from a compounding pharmacy and I just got it last night. She told me that she was giving me low doses or estrodial, estriol and progesterone to try to straighten me out.

    Anyone on the same thing for hot flashes and does it work. What are the side effects, good and bad? P

    I tried otc remedys to no avail and no, my Dr. didn't test my DHEA. She didn't test anything. I have read alot of good stuff about it in "The Wisdom of Menopause" though. P
