Rated 5 out of 5 by from Evening Primrose Oil I was on a mission to systematically try each possible hot flash solution to find one that worked! Well, after just a five or so days on this I was able to sleep again at night. Not every supplement is for everyone, but keep trying until you find one that works for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Good price, fast shipping. Taken along with Borage Oil Supplements, and adding a little of both to my hand lotion, seems to helps me with my frozen hands through the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta have it! If I don't take my Evening Primrose Oil, I get irritable with everyone and everything. Thankfully Swanson's offers a quality product at a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works! I no longer have night sweats, thanks to this great product, I take two just before bedtime along with a redclover suppliment. Blacxk Cohash gives me migranes, so I take evening Primrose at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot Flashes B Gone! After being awakened in the middle of the night by a bolt of heat aka hot flash, I did some research and tried this product along with Wild Yam and Black Cohosh. Sleeping like a baby now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Evening Primrose Oil I have been using this for about a month and a half, with some results. I decided to double the dosage on it though (take 2 pills in the morning and 2 in the afternoon) and now feel like it helping me somewhat, but I do believe I'm going to try the higher milligram pills the next order I make. I am in perimenopause and have started with the nightsweats, some serious mood swings and weight gain around my middle, so i bought this hoping it might help. It does help some but not enough to really make much difference at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot Flashes This product was recommended to me by a group of friends after I complained about severity of hot flashes. Took about 2 months of daily use before I "knew" it was working. Take this along with Black Cohosh. Doesn't "stop" the flashes, but certainly helps with severity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good to level hormones I like this product becuase it helps me keep my hormones leveled. I don't PMS as much and my periods are easier.
Date published: 2012-09-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value If you don't need a high dose of Primrose then this is a very good value. However, to get 500mg you do have to take 2 a day. I used to use a much higher mg Primrose and really can't tell any difference between when I took 1000 mg a day or 250.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beneficial I started taking this over a year ago to help with hormonal fluctuations. I honestly feel it does a great job and only take one pill/day. It is also healthy just as an omega oil. Pretty good price, but I like to buy it on sale.
