Progesterone and Dizziness
I am 46 and just started Bio Identical Progesterone Therapy two months ago. My doc started me on 12.5mg in the am and 25mg before bed. The next morning I awoke feeling clear and my vision was bright with no fuzzing lines as before. I thought I was on cloud nine! Well... the next day was horrible; I developed this heavy depression. It felt like a huge dark cloud was sitting on my shoulders all day long. I called the doc and begged for some relief. He took me off of the 37.5mg per day and started me on a 3.25mg sublingual pill once every evening. This took several weeks to feel better. After 5 weeks I have upped my dosage to 6.25mg sublingual every night. I have been on the 6.25mg for 5 days now and still feel dizzy and swimmy head during the day. It seems to happen in the first half of my cycle. After I ovulate; I feel better. I am confused as my dosage seems REALLY LOW compared to what you are suggesting to your readers. I am also on 300mg Magnesium, 5,000iu Vitamin D and a multi vitamin everyday. Do you have any suggestions to helping me rid this dizzy anxious feeling??
