    Hi. It may be that the  patches aren't strong enough for you, but super strength sage pills helped me for a while. Stopped the sweats until I started hrt.

    Hi, I use 2,500mg sage tablets but I had to combine them with Menopol Plus supplements too. No longer have flushes or sweats but if I run out of either one they start again x

    I am on amitriptyline. This was originally for vulvodynia but my GP said to stay on it because it helps with night sweats. She must be right because I was having them every few hours in the day, and one as soon as I got into bed but never woke up with them in the night. I know I was having them in the night because my hubby told me so (I get so hot and sweaty it wakes him up). They are dying down now and I only get one or two a day.
