Hi, I was just tested (saliva) for hormone levels, after feeling crazy for months, ocular and plain ol migraines,2 periods a month, weight gain,aches, insomnia, night sweats,etc. My progesterone was a grand total of 12,estrodiol 1.99, and testosterone 64.40. So the doc prescribed 30 mg of progesterone cream from a compounding pharm. to apply at night, 2 hours before bed. First night was fine, 2nd night was too. On the 3rd morning, I woke up COMPLETELY drunk. I couldn't function til around noon. I have panic disorder, so I never drink. Needless to say this feeling was upsetting to me, and I hated it, even though I was reeeaaaalllyyy mellllooow. The pharm told me that the dose was too high, to cut it in half and see what happens. I was scared to even take it again, so I cut in half, twice. So, I am taking 7.5 mg for 3 nights now. I feel ok. Kinda spacey at times, and I am dreaming so much that it takes me half of the morning to figure out what was real and what was dreamt. I alos take a tiny dose of Xanax almost daily (1/2 of a .25) that I am trying to stop. Wondering if it will hurt me to slowly increase my progesterone over weeks, because I cannot risk feeling like I did on the drunk morning, I have to drive for a living. BTW, I am extremely sensitive to meds, always have to take things in tiny doses.
