You might want to bring up this discussion on the Alternative Medicine board. Ask about specific brands and dosages, too. I've gotten excellent advice from Sheila on that board and the Health and Nutrition board. She is a PhD technical editor for a medical journal (married to a PhD medical researcher) who studies alternative medicine (takes seminars, reads original research). She also uses alternative medicine herself and has personal experience to share. She has helped many people, including me.

PS--I second ish's recommendations for menopause, although I have no personal experience of taking them. I had hot flashes for years, but they didn't bother me enough to deal with. I must say I LOVE not having periods to deal with! And my budget for hygiene items is way down, too :-)
