    HI. I didn't have it for menopause but it shocks me they give it for that. My best friend had it and I told her to get rid!

    I had it for depression and anxiety and I had night sweats from it! I woke up wringing wet on occasions and I know about the shocks. It's to do with the effect on nerve impulse transmission. I'd get it in bed and jump like I was electrocuted. It used to wake me and my hubby up.

    Amitiptiline is better for sweats. Not ven. It's an extreme response to a problem.

    Iv never heard of this medication being prescribed for the menopause. Plus this tablet makes you have night sweats so I am rather confused as to why you take this. You would normally take a HRT (hormone replacement therapy) for your condition that you are experiencing. X

    It does come in 75mg capsules. Going from 150 to 75mg you may have some withdrawal.

    Hi Nikki, the withdrawals for me were horrible. I had sever anxiety, diarehha, vomiting. I ended up weaning off of it and it took 3 months. Now that is me, you may experience nothing who knows. There are alot of discussion threads on here with people going through it. I personally would suggest slowly weaning from 150 to 75 if that is what you decide. I had to open the capsule up and count the beads. I did it in quarters.My doctor had no idea about the withdrawals but my pychiartrist did and he really helped me come off of it. It takes committment though.

      Yes I counted them and then out them back into the capsule. You can also get empty capsules from the pharmacy if you want to keep the extra beads. I had a baggy of 1/4 of the ipills, baggies of half pills for when I got down to less then one pill.
