How long before you feel the effects of herbal remedies

elizabeth_craigJune 8, 2007

My doctor took me off HRT, way too many problems. About a week after stopping, the sweats came back. I started taking black cohosh and evening primrose oil. I know everyone is different, but does anyone know how long it takes for this stuff to work.

Also, is there anyone that this stuff does not work for,and if so, what are you taking for particulary the night sweats which keep us awake.

Thanks ladies, for any information.

I don't know herbst to work for anybody. I take lorazepam every third night to get a good night's sleep. I'm just toughing it out for now. I use a fan and I drink a ton of water.

Just bought Estroven yesterday. Will let you know. If hot flashes were my only symptom, I'd be happy!
