In reply to anyone taking effexor for hot flashes?, posted by Rosemary on April 6, 2003, at 5:04:14

I get hot flashes on Effexor. Where, when I lift my hair is wet and so is my skin. I can't stand it. It has gotten better but I still have the hot flashes about once a day.

Had breast cancer and now taking Tamaxifen for treatment after chemotherapy. Besides now being menopausal from chemotherapy, the Tamoxifen was creating intolerable hot flashes for me. Effexor was recommended and have been taking for the last 8 months. It has been wonderful not to be blasted by those hot flashes, although it did not eliminate completely. Just made them easier to live with. Accidently forgot my daily dose of 75mg ( 37.5 mg twice a day) the last few days and have been expierencing wierd withdrawl symptoms, they are the brain shivers and lightheadedness that others talk about. Effexor has been a big help for the hot flashes especially now that I realize that without it my hot flashes have come back with a vengence. Is anyone else taking Effexor for hot flashes? Would love to hear from you?
