In brief: Most

Most 17 year olds don't get hot flashes.
However if you are being treated for panic attacks or anxiety disorder, this can cause symptoms that are similar. I would ask your psychiatrist about this. Take care.

In brief: Hot Flashes

You are most probably experiencing some sort of reaction to the medications.
If you are taking them for some sort of anxiety disorder, however, then the illness may be causing some of your hot flashes. I recommend discussing this with your doctor.
