    Lexapro for hot flashes and night sweats

    I was in some older posts and came across a member (I won't say her name, don't know if I'm supposed to), she said that Lexapro stopped her hot flashes and night sweats the first day she took it. Has anyone else had this kind of relief from Lexapro? I also am going to start on the fish oil and flax seed for help in sleeping, I sure need help...

    My night sweats got worse with the Lexapro. I was not having many and still do not have virtually any hot flashes. The more I exercise, the less symptoms I have. Good luck!

    Lexapro gave me night sweats, but only when I was asleep. I never woke up hot, just drenched. I have never had a night sweat except for then. Sorry.
