Progesterone and sleep?
(Kansas City, KS)
I was just prescribed Progesterone by my doctor for "hormone therapy" and "sleep support". I am on lunesta, had a sleep study to find I have restless leg syndrome.
My brain wakes up about 4 times an hour. With the lack of sleep over the years has come nerve pain, etc. I am on 4,000 IU's of vit. D; Magnesium, multi-vitamin, iron, probiotics to help with IBS from chronic sinus infections. Dr. said Progesterone 50mg 1-2 tablets at night. Last night was the first night and I slept so good. I took one tablet. My question is why is this also suppose to help with sleep? I haven't really found anything to support his claim although I don't doubt him, he has been wonderful helping me with my many issues. Thank you!
