Progesterone at 33 to wean off anti depressants

by Holly
(Charlotte NC )

I have fibromyalgia and the only thing that’s helped is an antidepressant for the pain yet I don’t sleep at all. I had several estrogen dominance symptoms with this and want to sleep and come off the lexapro. The few days I’ve taken my other progesterone at 20mgni felt horrible the next day and was barely functioning. I’ve now read your site about needing high doses and ordered yours. Did 50mg last might and couldn’t leave bed today, tonight made the jump to 200.

Is this a risk with ,me being young and otherwise very healthy? I just don’t want to risk messing myself up but I have to sleep. However I can’t have many more days like today where I can’t even get out of bed. Any advice?

...along with vitamin C and NAC for liver support - consider getting rid of what doesn’t belong (xylem/false estrogen) before adding more stuff ... progesterone (or pregnenolone) can be wonderful tools, but the excess xeno estrogen is messing you up - find a good herbalist and dump the xeno-e !

Hi Holly

A lack of vitamin D is directly linked to fibromyalgia. Please read this post and take note of what Wray has posted.

The correct use of progesterone should also help. Use a good organic progesterone cream such as Natpro which is a 3% cream, between 100-200mg is needed, more if symptoms are severe. It can take 2-6 months before positive results are felt. Please read the How to use Progesterone Cream page.

Vitamin D3 is very important, a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone. Nothing less than 5,000iu's per day is needed. Optimal range is between 70-100ng/ml. Magnesium and vitamin K2 with no soy are important co-factors needed when taking vitamin D3.
