For Herbal Supplementation: "I took one pill to help with my Hot Flashes. It has been 5 days sinceI took the pill and ever since I have been dealing with painful diarrhea w/ a lot of blood in my stool. been to the emergency room for this and they determined that it was from this one pill. my Dr. has put me on famotidine to help relieve my issue. 5 days in and I'm still passing everything I eat within a half an hour of eating. been absolutely miserable. Please beware not only am I out the $7 for the pills but also the cost of the Emergency care visit, and lab cost for the blood work but also missed work due to it."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I've just gone though a very painful week in the hospital, due to pancreatitis caused by Black Cohosh. It had been recommended to me by my GP as a herbal product that would help with premenopausal symptoms. I bought a bottle and I took it daily for over two months before started experiencing mild abdominal pain similar to cramping from your period. Last week I woke up in excruciating pain and was sent to the ER. After ruling out gall stones, ruptured cyst, or appendicitis, they did surgery and finally concluded pancreatitis. I had a very painful week-long hospital stay followed by another week out of work for recovery. I would not recommend anyone takes this herbal supplement, EVER. Even under your doctors care."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I was having bad hot flashes and gave this a try. 40 mg 3x's a day, then down to one a day within one week. I feel a lot better, less grumpy. Just make sure if you're going to take it, check drug interaction."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I take black cohosh as Remifemin but I don't take it twice a day as suggested. I wear the low dosage of Estrivill. Estogen. Patch. That wasn't enough so instead of increasing it I take black cohosh one 20 milligram every other day, I don't take it every day. It seems like my body only requires a pick me up, which every 2 days I take it. Works that way for me. Hot flashes gone."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I get the dried organic root from Mountain Rose Herbs. I put about two heaping tablespoons in a tea strainer, pour boiling, hot water over it in a cup, cover the cup and steep for 15 minutes. The tea is very bitter but my hot flashes are all but gone. They went away almost instantly and my mood has dramatically improved. Would highly recommend this to anyone. No headaches, no side effects, drink 2 cups per day."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I have only taken the supplement for 1 day and I was wondering about the headache and lightheadeness. But my sweats have been reduced tremendously. I went from 1 every other hour to 4 in one day with just taking morning and night pill. I am so happy to finally find something to help with this menopause. I'll take an Advil and get rid of the headache. I'm satisfied."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I started taking Black Cohosh to relieve hot flashes and night sweats. Within about 12 hours after taking my first dose I felt dizzy and nauseas. It has taken me about 5 days to link it to Black Cohosh."
