Hello, Clbark! How are you doing? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having.

If you read over the details side effects provided by the FDA, this medication has been known to cause many visual issues, as well as nausea, weight gain, mood swings and alopecia.

Have you spoken to your doctor about trying a different medication?

Tapering off of this one and trying something else would enable you to discover if your problem is solely due to this drug.

Prozac, which is an SSRI, has also been shown to help with hot flashes. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and weight loss. I've taken it successfully for over a year, now.
