Hormone therapy: While herbs and homeopathic remedies have been known to help, the most reliable and quick way to deal with menopausal symptoms is with hormone therapy - estrogen - with or without progestin.

Depends: Unfortunately, there is no silver bullet for hot flashes. Some women respond to certain anti-depressants (ssri), some to certain blood pressure medications, and some to medications for nerve pain. All have some side effects i would recommend having a conversation with your doctor on which one is right for you, especially if you sleep is very disturbed.
