Hi there. Just passing thru here. I'm dealing with hot flashes myself but for a diff reason. I have Breast cancer (I'm 33) have gone thru chemo and am on hormone blockers - its basically menopause (again). I am actually looking for information on a catapress patch - but having little success. You're not going to die from it, but its certainly very uncomfortable. Talk to your doc if hot flashes is not a side effect of the drugs you're on just to make sure they're aware and that everythings ok. Mebbe he can even suggest some relief for you.
