hot flashes
wager01 posted:
I recently started climara patch for hot flashes, It's been three days and still having them. How long does it take for the hot flashes to stop?
Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear wager01,
it may take another couple of weeks to have them "kicking in"-so don't give up!
Good luck,
Mary Jane
