I take 40mg B-C a day with Finestaride for enlarged prostrate. My PSA has dropped from an average of 14 to 0.
I like the stuff. Coment from doctor: Why are you taking B-C? Answer: It is good for the prostrate. His response: Well it certainly is doing something for you.

I have been on Proscar alone and it didn't change anything.

is it true that black cohosh is a steroid

How black cohosh works is not known. The possibility that black cohosh exhibits estrogenic activity has been studied but the evidence is conflicting.

After months of experiencing more and more hot flashes both day and night, I went to my pharmacy and talk to, JC, the pharmist. He recommended Walgreens brand (EstroNatural), Each pill contained (Vitamin E 30IU), (Thiamin 5mg), (Riboflavin 5mg), (Niacin 20mg), (Vitamin B-6 25mg), (Folate 400mcg), (Vitamin B-12 25mcg), (Calcium 200mg), (Selenium 70mcg), (Chromium 120mcg), (Cranberry Juice 300mg), (Purified Isoflavones 80mg), (Black Cohosh Root 40mg), (Boron 1.5mg) and 200mg of a calming herbal blend. I highly recommend this product! Approximately 15 dollars for a box of 56 tablets.

I've used Remifemin for YEARS and I've never experienced a problem using it. I've never tried doing without it so I don't know if it REALLY HELPS or if it makes no difference.

I noticed someone mentioned that they are taking 1500MG a day. My bottle has capsules in 200MG doses and simply says "1 capsule daily". What are folks finding is a good general dosage for Menopause as the hot flashes are making me nuts. Thanks in advance

After months of experiencing more and more flashing day and night, I went to Whole Foods and found their brand of "24-Hour Menopause Remedy" with daytime and nightime tablets of black cohosh. The daytime tablet contains green tea, panax ginseng and black cohosh; nighttime contains: valerian, hops, L-theanine and black cohosh. You take one tablet in the am and one before bedtime. I've been taking these since 3 weeks and have found TREMENDOUS relief, not only with the hot flashes but also having more energy during the day, probably as a result of not waking up numerous times during the night with flashing. Flashes have not completely gone, but are reduced by probably 80% and are manageable. Highly recommend this product!

I take the same product. I am very pleased. I was hoping to find something like itfor the other menopausal symptoms. that is why I have begun using these sites. to hear all of you. Thanks.

I tried the walmart brand like estroven and it had no effect by the time I finished the box so I tried black cohosh and it helped the hot flashes a lot, I hardly had any for a long time. Then I wondered if I could stop taking it but after being off it for a while the hot flashes came back so I started taking it again. I had to take 1500mg/day for several weeks before it kicked in. If I miss a few pills they start coming back.

I am a 47 year old female. I started taking Black cohosh 4 months ago when 7 hot flashes per day and night sweats were every day for me. Since taking this, I don't have the hot flasher or night sweats at all! I'm only taking one pill each day.

I am a 51 year old female, pre-menopausal at 48, now in full menopause. I have been using black cohosh for almost 2 years, and it has helped with the hot flashes and night sweats tremendously. They become quite noticeably more severe if I don't take it, so I take 3 capsules every morning with the rest of my daily med routine.

I starting taking this about a year ago. I have experienced a great decrease in symptoms. I have tried other products that say they accomplish the same results and have not found them to be as effective. I take 2 tablets per day. I am a 48 year old female and had hot flashes on and off for a few years prior to last summer when they came on with a vengence. That's what prompted me to find relief. My mother-in-law said her doctor had recommended it to her and she had found it helpful.
