I am 49 years old and had breast cancer 8 years ago. I am now having eextreme hot flashes, severe depression and very little sleep. Due to my cancer dagnosis, I have not gone on any hormone replacement therapy but the over the counter medications do not seem to work anymore...I have tried Chinese Meds, Black Cohosh, and I-Cool. Antidepresents were keeping me awake. Since my cancer was not hormone receptive, does anyone know the risk if I go on some type of hormone replacement therapy??
