Has it helped you and what dosage do you take?

I take Effexor as an antidepressant. Was at the highest dosage, but now using 125mg along with Lexapro and neither dosages helped my hot flashes at all. Doctor took me off of Premarin .625 that I'd taken for ten years. Now he put me back on Premarin .03, which is just a 'breath' of a dosage, and it took away all my hot flashes including the one I used to get in the evening even on the Premarin .625.
