    Basir U Tareen, MD responded:
    This is likely a side effect from hormonal therapy. When the testosterone is low that means the hormonal treatment is still giving a response. It will improve once the T rises. In the meantime you can ask your doctor if he can prescribe something such as Megace to help w/ the hot flashes.
