Charlotte, please try chromium. I am not menopausal, but I did suffer for many years from Bulimia. When you recover from Bulimia (ie stop the bingeing and purging) your body takes a long while to readjust. And during this period your blood sugar goes up and down. One of the symptoms is night sweats, from low blood sugar. Literally the day I started taking the chromium the night sweats stopped. I've never had them since. I also thought that it was hormonal, and I was taking all sorts of things for my female hormones. They did not help. I take it in liquid form. But 200mcg three times a day should be fine. Make sure you take one dose at bedtime. Chromium picolinate should be fine as it's yeast-free.
