I am 69 years old and have hot flashes. I am currently taking .50 synthroid for hypo-thryroidism. Is it safe to take MECAFE?

I've never heard of Mecafe, can you tell me the ingredients?

I misspelled it is MECAFEM
Thank you - now that makes more sense and yes you can use this - it is a estrogen like herb. Now, since you are having hot flashes makes sure this is not something else too such as a leukemia or lymphoma, or your that your thyroid is adjusted properly. And, if related to menopause, a medications called Clonidine (also known as Catapress) might help too.
I hope this helps, if you have more questions, please ask
