Does black cohosh cause headaches?

I've been using it and it has decreased my hot flashes noticeably, but I've also been getting headaches lately but I've gotten headaches all my life, so I don't know if there's a connection. Have any of you noticed that side effect?

I'm not much help. I did take black cohosh for awhile but I normally get 15+ migraines a month so it's hard to tell if it had any affect on them.

my aunt was taking black cohash for a while and didnt experience headaches. what she did notice is that they did nothing for her hot flashes. she used to get really bad hot flashes- HORRIBLE. the only thing that has kept them away is birth controll pills.

I take Black Cohosh for nightsweats. It's help, thank goodness. I haven't noticed an increase in headaches. Could it be the time of the year? Aren't there lots of allergens in the air this time of year.
