Tips, success stories, and coping strategies for Hot flashes

What tip would you give someone like me who was just diagnosed?
  • I HAVE BEEN TAKING EFFEXOR FOR OVER 5 YEARS I WENT THROUGH A 14 MONTH STUDY WITH CLOSE MONITORING EVERY MONTH WITH PROFESSIONAL DR.'S AND NURSES AND THE DRUG STUDY PERSON. IT IS VERY MUCH WORTH THE TIME AND EFFORTS I WENT THROUGH FOR THE RESULTS. DO NOT JUST STOP TAKING THE MEDICATION ON YOUR OWN!!!!! YOU MUST BE EASED OFF THE EFFEXOR GENTLY AND NOT ALL AT ONCE. I CAN'T STRESS THIS ENOUGH IT WOULD BE KINDA LIKE DT'S FROM ALCOHOL ABUSE. I HAVE VERY FEW HOT FLASHES AND A MUCH BETTER ATTITUDE ON EVERYTHING. AS HOT FLASHES WORSEN WITH AGE THE MEDACINE MAY NEED TO BE INCREASED. YES IT IS COVERED BY MOST INSURANCE.
What’s your best coping strategy?
  • ALSO BE SURE TO TAKE MED. ABOUT THE SAME TIME EACH DAY IF YOU MISS YOUR TIME DO NOT JUST TAKE ANY TIME. SKIP THAT DAY AND GET BACK ON YOUR REGIMENT THE NEXT DAY. YOU WILL SEE A DIFFERENCE, DO NOT GO OVER 1 HOUR OR 1 1/2 HOURS OVER IF SO SKIP TO NEXT DAY.
Besides medications, what else has worked for you?
