Need help with dosing
(Edmonton Alberta Canada )
I had all my hormones tested. I am low in progesterone, dhea, and estrogen. I was put on progesterone cream. At first I used a small amount 50 mg split into daily doses and used it straight for 3 months. I started to feel better. I went back to the doctor still not feeling 100% but better then I did, and he said my levels still were low and to experiment and try 150 mg daily. I upped my dose now to 200 mg and the problem I have is that when I take the progesterone I get so so tired. I feel tired and lethargic and slightly drunk. But if I don't use it in the day I feel irritable and anxious. How can I use the progesterone and avoid the tired lethargic feeling. Should I use it in small doses throughout the day, should I only use it at night. Is the progesterone making me tired or the estrogen being woken up. I also get slight heart palpitations when I use it, I didn't get the tired lethargic feeling or heart palps when I used 50 mg. 200 mg is the most my doctor allows and I don't feel comfortable buying progesterone cream from the internet.
