Hot flash help

Well, I'm not enjoying the extra weight around the middle that I can't seem to lose, the real challenge is the hot flashes.  I have tried evening primrose oil. It helps a little. I noticed that no drinking whatsoever improves them.  Problem as I like a few cocktails on the weekends and special occasions, but then the hot flashes pour in...  Suggestions??

there is a homeopathic remedy for hot flashes from Boiron. I don’t recall the name. Otherwise the obvious answer you know is to avoid alcohol but I get it- a drink on occasion is nice.

Hi. I used Estroven which is otc for night sweats and hit flashes. It took a couple of weeks to feel the benefits. They also sell an Estroven supplement for weight management, but I did not use it so I cannot speak to its effectiveness.
