“I was given prometrium 100mg vaginal inserts 14 days out of the month along with estradiol patch 1mg for post menopausal symptoms. Prior to taking the prometrium, I was sleeping poorly and had stubborn weight around the belly I couldn't get rid of. After menopause, my figure changed and I gained a total of 10 lbs. Well...miraculously in a month on these, I lost 7 of those pounds! I am sleeping really well. Almost too much but maybe I needed it. My post menopause pants are getting too loose now and I think I'll have to unpack my high-rise jeans. Yay for prometrium!”

Just an FYI. · Taken for 1 to 6 months September 5, 2016

“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.”

“I'm 48, and found that this nicely balanced the issues I'm having with estrogen dominance. I've had no side effects that I can tell, but a real clearing up of the fuzzy brain, night sweats, and trouble sleeping. I love it!”

“I am 46. I am estrogen dominant and have low progesterone. I also have PCOS. I take 100 mg after menstrual bleeding, 200 mg upon ovulation, and none when bleeding starts. My periods were abnormal (cycle 25-36). I take it by mouth at night and go straight to bed as it makes me extremely drowsy. If I try to stay up, I have lucid dreams. Some tiny stomach cramps but not bad. Breast tenderness has drastically decreased. Some left shoulder pain. Not sure if that has anything to do with the medication. Since starting break thru spotting during ovulation and short window between ovulation and period. Cycle is currently now at 20 days. I have read this can happen but can’t find a lot of reviews on it. Not sure if that is normal and will be following up. Facial hair growth appears to have decreased.”

“I'm pregnant and my lab work came back indicating I have a low progesterone level. My doctor prescribed Prometrium and initially I took the medication in the daytime, but then found that it makes me extremely tired. I decided to start taking the medicine at bedtime then started having very bizarre dreams only when I take the medication at bedtime. I informed my doctor,but he dismissed the side effect as not being related. I'm positive the side effect is from the medication. I hope this comment let other women who experience this side effect know that you are not alone. Just because it's not a listed side effect doesn't mean it can't happen.”

“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.”

“I am 49 and have been on this medication for one cycle. The side effects have not been as bad as I had anticipated. I had a few mild headaches, and bit of bloating, tender breasts and a mild acne breakout, and was a bit tired a few days. I am taking it for a proliferative endometrium and after 4 days being off the medicine, I am getting a period, so it seems to be working as planned. I am taking 200 mg.”

“I am on 100mg dose, days 14-28 of my period or the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. The first month was great, I felt level, the only side effects felt were extreme sugar cravings and vivid, bizarre dreams. However, in month two, no cravings, extreme mood swings and ranging from a need for a lot of sleep, not wanting to get out of bed to anxiety and very little sleep. No pregnancy yet.”

“I experienced a few mild side effects - mainly mild nausea and irritability. Well worth the improvement in my overall health.”
