Have just received ClearPatch Natural Progesterone USP 5% Lotion in the mail from Gentle Pharmacy. Have been using Emerita Progesterone cream around 100mg/day. The ClearPatch states not to use as much lotion as you do in a Progesterone cream due to the availability/absorption of the Progesterone in the lotion. States that you do not need as much lotion as you would in a cream. Do you know anything about this? It state to use 2-10 drops per day for menopause (10 drops = 14mg Progesterone)
I have been using Progesterone cream since June 3, 2013 everyday. Do I need to take a break? Was afraid to because I was in such a bad way when I started using it and I did NOT want all those horrible symptoms to come back. I have also noticed starting last week that I'm starting to have hot flashes, stress incontinence and anxiety again. All of these were much better and now it's like they are trying to break through. I'm assuming/thinking that I need to increase my dosage of Progesterone. Would like your guidance/recommendations on this also.
Thank You in advance for your time and consideration.
