I am having the hot flashes as well and my dr tells me it's premenopausal even though my Gyn tells me my hormone levels are good and I should not be experiencing hot flashes yet. I am wondering if they will subside after I have been on the Meds a few months?

When I was 40.  I had hot flashes. They checked my hormone levels & told me I was premenopausal.  The hot flashes eventually subsided for many years until I went into menopause at 47. I never understood why it worked that way.

I have just been put on this medication. And I usually have a bad time with side affects. It has caused me large hot flashes. Am going to stop.
