PROMETRIUM: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Uterine Bleeding “I’m 50 and developed simple hyperplasia. Went eight months without a period and then had a three-week period that was very heavy and sent me to the ER for hemorrhaging. Doctor put me on Prometrium 100 mg daily for three months. After just two pills, I was having panic attacks during the day and at night. Could not take it. Current endometrial lining is 8.4mm after three weeks of bleeding, so likely will need a D&C. Will work with a naturopath to have some hormone testing done. It’s likely that this dosage is just too high for me, but Prometrium doesn’t come in a lower dose than 100 mg.”

For Perimenopausal Symptoms “I’m 42 years old and perimenopause has taken over my life. My estrogen dominance was so bad that for 8 whole days before I even started my period I was almost bed ridden. My breasts were so sore, it was as if they were engorged and I, at times, felt a low grade fever coming on. I have a 21 day cycle. I have one week a month that I felt pretty OK… Only one week a month!! Went to the Obgyn and begged for help. I’m now day 5 on prometrium. So far my head is clear, no boob pain, I’m awake not tired, not hungery either. I do have some uterine cramps every afternoon for some reason. I can’t wait to see how my whole cycle will be. So far so good, very happy.”

For Premature Labor “Mild side affects such as fatigue and hunger, horrible headaches if not taken at all. Seems to work, however for the price paid for the medication seems like they could include a applicator like the ones they give with gels and OTC yeast meds etc. It’s not fun or very easy trying to shove pills in your VAGAY with your fingers every single time you must use this medication.”

For Progesterone Insufficiency “I was diagnosed with hyperplasia. I was experiencing very heavy, clotty periods for YEARS. I thought this was normal until I had a month long period. This pill is heaven sent. I have not had a period for about 8 months, have lost a tone of weight, have more energy than I have had in years and I would say the only side effect is tender breasts. I cannot guarantee this result for everyone but clearly I was no producing my own progesterone.”

For Progesterone Insufficiency “I’ve been taking Prometrium for about 4 months now, & for the most part have no side effects. It works like its suppose to and keeps my progesterone to where it needs to be. However, just an FYI you should always take it before bed with food & I mean lights out in bed to sleep not watching TV or playing on your phone/tablet. If you take Prometrium & not go to bed it will cause a euphoric (high) feeling which may be unsettling to some people & may cause panic, because it does feel really weird.”

For Premature Labor “I was on Prometrium from day 1 up until week 19 then I was placed on the Makena shot which is also progesterone until I was 36 weeks. I fully believe this is why I have my daughter today. She is almost two and has had no side effects from me taking this medication in pregnancy. I have MTHFR FACTOR and low progesterone. This is why I needed to be on this medication”
