I had my last period 8 months ago and I began experiencing hot flushes around 5 months ago. Please can you advise what I could take to stop these flushes? I am currently taking the anti-depressant Sertraline and I am also taking Loratadine. In September I am looking to start HRT after having discussed this previously with my GP. Please can you help?
