It's all natural. It has no known side effects. The only warning I'll give you is start out with one per day. They're strong, at least for me. I tried 2 for my first dosage and they almost knocked me on my fanny. One a half hour before bedtime is just perfect for me. Since taking it I have not had ONE night sweat. I'm not getting hot flashes. I haven't had much trouble with mood swings but I do find I seem to stay more even keeled now...anxiety won't come sweeping over me unexpectedly. You get 120 tablets which, for a woman who can tolerate 4 per day, equals out to a month's supply. With only needing one per day, a bottle will last me close to 4 months. I haven't found a local store that supplies it so I'm ordering it online. It's around $40 for 120. For me, that equals out to around $10 per month. Totally affordable. The Vivelle estrogen patches I was prescribed cost me $30 per month. And I didn't feel comfortable using those at all.
A miracle antidote? I dunno. But until something better comes along I'm sold.
