Doctor thinks I may be having side effects from too much progesterone
I was given a prescription of Premarin to use on my daughter when she was 3 months old. I applied it twice a day, everyday for a month and began having night sweats and insomnia.
I went to my ob and he gave me Xanax, which didn't help, then Ambian and then sent me to the ER which gave me Trazadone. This was all in a week's time. I ended feeling suicidal on the Trazadone after one night. I went to the psychiatrist and she put me on Lexapro, Ambian and Ativan. I felt ok for a while and then I started having horrible panic attacks and all the time anxiety.
I found a dr in houston who claims to be the expert in hormone replacement therapy. I started BHRT 9 months ago and have increased my dosage of progesterone (Orally), thyroid, and cortisol, while getting off the lexapro. The anxiety is still there at times. My dr. is wondering if the anxiety was just the lexapro since I am taking 175 mg progesterone twice a day and that is a huge amount for somene my age. That too much progesterone can actually cause adverse side effects like panic and anxiety and confusion. I just want to survive this. Please advise. I also take 1 pump of Arbonne Prolief daily.
