I read about that too and also saw it on the local news. I asked my pharmacist and she says that some women report a decrease/takes the edge off of hot flashes. I thought mine may have decreased but I still do get them.

Yes, apparently SSRIs reduce hot flashes. My wife takes Effexor. Note that it does not eliminate them but it definitely reduces them.
