Re: Any advice for Hot Flashes after chemo?

I did not like the side effects with Effexor but my hot flashes caused me to vomit and I was a complete mess. Neurontin did nothing to help me, but Lexapro has been a godsend. Very minimal hot flashes and no side effects (boyfriend sees a very positive change). Most of us hate to take more meds, so keep us posted on how its working for you. Good luck!

First thing each morning, I try on my bathing suit. Then, nothing worse can happen the rest of the day.
