    HRT worked really well for me. But then I started bleeding so I came off it. The misery started again but then I started taking Vit D and Magnesium and my hot flushes have decreased to the occasional 'warm glow'. I can't get over the difference and am banging on about it to everyone! Can't say it will work for everyone and I don't know what it is, but it seems to be working.

      Thanks for the advice, will give it a go!! I would much rather go down the non prescriptive route ive spent a small fortune on prescritptions!

      Can I ask how long it took for you to notice a difference in your sweats??

      I was on HRT for just over a year and had stopped twice before because of the bleeding. But the sweats started about two weeks after stopping the HRT. I started the Vit D in September and the Magnesium just after. I took the last HRT in November. Since then, hardly anything.

    Hi Leesa, I have duffered so badly for the past few years that when I have a hot flush I feel shaky and weak and my face and head gets so hot I drip with sweat from my face and my hair gets soaking wet. It's so embarrassing. My friends are shocked when they see me. Night time I soak the bed -just awful! Someone on this site 2 weeks ago mentioned safe tablets. I went to Holland & Barrett and was advised to by a certain brand by A Vogel and it's called Menoforcr Sage Leaf tablets. These are especially for hot flushes and excessive sweating during menopause and they really do work. The first day I took them my flushes went from 30+ a day to around 5. I can't thank this person enough for the recommendation. I've taken vit d and magnesium for a long time due to deficiency but had no idea about them helping with flushes. However if that works then great. You can google sage leaf and read reviews. Totally a life saver for me. Good luck x

      I hadn't heard about them either so I read some reviews first and I really can't believe I've found something that works. I too have been previously on HRT and pregabalin plus many anti depressants which did nothing. I have thyroid problems too so thought nothing would ever work. I started night sweats at 29 so really have suffered. My hot flushes begun around 2 years ago . It was so nice going out today with my daughter and granddaughter without having to mop up my sweaty face and people staring at me thinking I've got a disease - the make I mentioned are supposed to be the purest and the best. Please let me know if they work for you too x

      Hi bobbysgirl, it's so strange how we all react so differently to all kinds of drugs whether synthetic or natural. Yet all we women have periods and then menopause. All we can do is try and help each other in the hope that what works for us may help someone else. I hope the vit d and magnesium continues to work for you. I had to come off HRT after finding out I carry the BRCA1 gene 😕

      Hi, I just starting taking the same make of sage tablets as you bought a week ago. I haven't noticed much relief from the hot flushes and night sweats as yet. What strength were the ones you took. Mine are 51mg, one a day. I'm sure I've seen someone on here say to take 1000mg?
