Re: Any advice for Hot Flashes after chemo?

V-ness, thank you for the information on Ditropan. I can not open the link to the study but I will look into it. For now, I have been on the Pine Bark ~ 7 weeks, increased to 200mg daily ~ 3 weeks ago. I think I'm seeing some minor improvement but I'm still hopeful that it will continue to improve. I had 3 "fair" nights in a row twice since being on the pine bark, I get all excited, then a horrendous night like last night... for ~ 3 hours I broke into sweats about every 20 min.
I'm planing on sticking with the pine bark for now, daytime flashes seem a bit less intense as well. I will explore ditropan just in case.
