Progesterone and myopathy
by: Wray

Dear Dr Azafar, A research paper I have showed considerable success using progesterone therapy for a 41 year old woman who had both myopathy and respiratory distress. The initial dose was 400mg/day, which was then increased to 600mg/day via suppositories.

For a baby of 2 I would suggest an 1/8th of a teaspoon of the cream per day giving 4mg/day, increasing the dose until relief is achieved.

Another paper shows neonates with RDS had only 62% of the progesterone level they should have had. It has also been used successfully in a patient with right ventricular failure with diabetic neuropathy (myopathy) and central alveolar hypoventilation. Do hope this helps. Take care Wray
