1 doctor agrees
In brief: 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.
