Last appt my dr wanted me to start it, I know some posts have been written here already. Most mention hot flashes, heck I have been having them terrble on my own. so I am wondering, has everyone gotten them and has this med helped anyone much, and what side effects? I am so leary of new meds. Does it help the pain or mood the most? I go at the end of the mo and haven't decided to try it or not as I get tired of being a guinea pig so to speak.
