Daughter needs major help
My daughter is suffering from PMDD where she has to lock herself in a room and stay away from people for 2 weeks out of the month. She can't control herself.
We started her on progesterone about 6 weeks ago. We got our own powder and make our own cream (she's sensitive to lots of additives). She's had to work up very quickly to very large amounts of cream (5,000 mg) and even at that dose (using most of it as suppositories every 2 hours), she still has not seen relief from her symptoms.
Since we started her on cream (and at your suggestion that for severe issues, one shouldn't rotate off the cream for a few months), she's had 6 constant weeks of PMDD now. It's unbearable to her not having any break at all (normally she gets 2 good weeks out of the month).
We don't know what to do now. She's desperate to find relief. We don't know if we should increase her cream (5,000 mg seems like a lot) or if we should drop it, or reduce it, or rotate her off of it. We did start her on a dose of DIM, but that was less than a week ago, so we haven't seen any benefit yet.
