Honey I'm right there with you! I've been suffering through the night sweats for 2 years!!! Finally I got some Black Cohosh and EPO too! I just started a few days ago. I'm taking a high dose to start, hoping it will build up in my system faster. The night sweats were coming every 90 minutes all night! Burning hot and sweating - changing to freezing cold! It sucks! I'm also taking Dong Quai cuz soon as the periods stopped my libido tanked! I mean ---- flat-line, dead to the world, don't touch me! My pour, pour husband has been deprived of "lovin" for so long! What used to be a 2-3 times a week event has been a once every 6 weeks event - only cuz I know he's REALLY needing it! I feel like a huge part of me died when I lost my sex drive. I'm SOOOO hoping the DQ helps it return to me! UGH!

I'm taking 1500 mg TID of the EPO, and 565 mg TID Dong Quai, and 540 mg TID Black Cohosh.
