Has Effexor helped you with the hot flashes.....It does seem to be helping me as much as I thought It should. Basically other than effexor I use cool towel on the back of my neck or a cold pack. This seem to help, for me anyway, minimize the length of the hot flash and the intensity.
Effexor did decrease the number of hot flashes. I thought it had stopped working about 4 months ago, so I started weaning myself off it. The hot flashes worsened the first day, so I went back to the 150 mg per day. I take 2 75 mg extended release pills. I take 1 in the am and the other before bed. What dosage are you taking? How long have you taken it? I've been one Effexor for the hot flashes (I think) for 3 years now.
