POST NATAL EXHAUSTION AND DEPRESSION
My daughter had her baby 14 weeks ago and has had a terrible time with anxiety, insommnia and distress, which were caused in part by withdrawal from an antipsychotic drug she was given for anxiety.
She uses bio identical hormones and has a doctor here in the UK.
She recently upped her progesterone to 300 mgs split in two doses without any effect. Her doctor has prescribed a very low dose of bio identical estriodial after checking bloods for levels - this has stopped the anxiety and insommnia. She is now struggling with crushing exhaustion and low mood. She is still taking progesterone - 300 mgs split into 150 mgs x 2 and also takes an oral progesterone - 200mgs in the evening.
Could she be suffering with side effects from the progesterone?
She is desperate to feel better - are you able to suggest anything.
