    has anyone heard of black cohosh? I just talked to my sister, and she just started using this, she says it has worked tremendously for her. She does not have FM, but does have the night sweats and day sweats and says that she may get 1 -2 episodes every other day now compared to 20. It is a natural pill that you can buy over the counter. I think I am going to try it. Any advise?

    I tried the Black Cohash tincture for a year when I started having horrible hot flashes and night sweats. My system can only handle tinctures. It never did a thing for me. :(

    I read a lot of posts by women with meno probs, some have FMS, some have Lyme, most are well other than major hormone issues and I've noticed that for some Black Cohash works great and for others it makes them sick (probably the pills) and for others it does nothing.

    The only way to know if it will work for you is to try it. I hope it does work for you. I know how miserable sweating is.
