Dear Red Hot Mamas Experts,

I have heard some women experience weight gain while taking i-cool. How common is this side effect? I need something to slow down these night sweats!

Thank you,


Dear K,

Menopausal weight gain is a very common issue and naturally occurs as a woman goes through menopause. From our point of view, it is not i-cool that is causing weight gain, but rather the menopause that some women may be attributing to i-cool. However, any unusual weight gain should be discussed with your doctor to determine there are no underlying medical issues.

Good Health to You!
