Problem with Progesterone???

by Pam N.
(Helena, Mt. )

I am 62 years old and take natural progesterone. It causes me to fall asleep easily, but I have very vivid dreams and noticed an increase in nightmares.

I resorted to taking half the progesterone in the morning which I believe has helped the dreams, but it leaves me drowsy during the daytime.

Any comments about this that you have received on this? Or it it just me?

Same here, I fall asleep easily but have very vivid, weird and often disturbing dreams at night. I too have considered stopping taking it. I woke up the other night so freaked out I was afraid to go back to sleep...
