Hot flashes after Orchiectomy

I recently underwent an orchiectomy and am now experiencing hot flashes. My endochrinologist prescribed Catapres-TTS-1 for the hot flashes and incidentally for high blood presssure. I asked him if there were any side effects and he said there were none. This is contrary to what you describe. If what you say about the drug is correct, I'd rather put up with the hot flashes than risk the side effects you describe. Can you clarify/advise?
