What is the remedy for night sweats?

Hi. i am experiencing night sweats and then I become chilled. My hormone levels show that I am not in menopause although it has been over 12 months since my last period. I have been taking tamoxifen for 2 years for treatment of breast cancer. The sweats started about 6 months ago
