    Has anyone tried the OTC product i-cool for hot flashes?

    Hi Cheaptrickfan,
    I am planning on taking I-Cool product very soon! The MD from this site suggested it for hot flashes. I have been taking the herb Black Cohosh and it seems to be helping some to lessen the frequency of them. This really sucks going through the change of life! All the best to you!

    I want to try it but take One A Day Menopause formula vitamins which contain soy (60mg.). I'm wondering how it would react if I took the i-cool which contains soy free geinistein with the vitamins.
    luv62 replied to cheaptrickfan's response:
    Good question! You could probably ask the Dr lady on here about that. She seems to respond rather quickly.
    cheaptrickfan replied to luv62's response:
    Thanks. How do I contact her?
    luv62 replied to cheaptrickfan's response:
    When you first log on she is the right of the screen or you could go to my profile and click on her name....she responded to one of my hot flash questions.
    cheaptrickfan replied to luv62's response:
    I found it. Thanks.

    I found her name and profile. Where do I send her a message?
    Mary Jane Minkin, MD replied to cheaptrickfan's response:
    Dear cheaptrickfan,
    You could try the Icool-and see if it helps. and if you find yourself getting great results, you might want to try to stop some of the other products if they have not been helpful. But if it doesn't help, then you need to consider other alternatives,
    Good luck,
    Mary Jane
