 1  Menopause Skin rash that looked like chicken pox. Red itchy blisters which then changed into smaller itchy spots and by three months were less frequent but still appearing. I did some research and found peanut oil is in the ingredients of Prometrium. I am highly allergic to peanuts!!!! Why anyone would include peanut oil in a drug is beyond me. F 59 90 days

 1  Menopause - to thin lining Horrible anxiety, panic attacks that I had never experienced before, waking up every hour at night with anxiety, crying, over emotional, loss of appetite, felt I needed to eat every few hours, dizziness and nausea. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me. Two trips to Er for them to tell me everything was fine. Thought I was going crazy until I read many reviews of women experiencing the same issues. The one positive thing to come out of taking this was it made me bleed which thinned my lining. F 60 8 weeks

 1  Perimenopause Horrendous depression and anxiety. Dizziness, weight gain. Apathy. Chest pain, muscle spasm. Please be careful when using this drug. I didn't know what was wrong with me and had no hope of recovery. The most scary experience ever. F 49 2 months

 1  Menopause constant headaches, nausea, constant thirst, frequent urination, bloating, lethargy, depression, brain fog, decreased response to estrogen replacement, dry skin and brown spots on skin. Just awful, this drug actually prevented my body from using the estrogen pills/cream I was using and gave me added horrible side effects. No matter how much estradiol hrt I took I still had low E symptoms. 100mg progesterone for some of us is much too high a dose. Stopped taking prometrium and felt so much better, symptoms mostly resolved, in about a week and my hyperpigmentation is going away. I had endometrial ablation 10 yrs ago so my risk of endometrial cancer is almost zero and the risk of endometrial cancer is the only reason for taking progesterone hrt. Btw progesterone actually increases breast cancer risk and causes hyperpigmentation of skin but doctors don't tell you that. F 56 4 years

 1  PCOS/induce a period About an hour after each pill I feel insanely dizzy and weak. I can't move my eyes or head quickly or I feel like I might fall over. I honestly feel like I'm drunk. My anxiety is at an all time high. I've been thinking my vitamin d was critically low until reading these comments. My hands and feet get numb and I get really cold after taking the pills and I am never cold. Absolutely will never take this again. I only made it to day five and I feel miserable. I've regularly taken other progesterone with no side effects. 0/10 would NEVER recommend. F 34 10 days

 3  Post Menopause Extreme lethargy I take a tablet at night which knocks me out but I wake with a headache and nausea and a feeling of extreme tiredness that lasts for most of the day.

 5  On HRT premature ovarian failure I get tired and dizzy sometimes after taking it. Some nights no side effects at all. I also take Vivelle Dot 0.075 twice a week. I take it for the first 12 days of the month. When it does make me dizzy it may last into the next day. It It is worth it to me, my hot flashes were extreme. I had days literally having one an hour. I would turn almost a purple shade. My heart would race then the sweat would drench me, sleep was torture. That has all stopped. I have gained some weight but that may just be my fault. A full glass of water does really help keep the side effects on the lower side. Hormones are crazy. F 44 2 years

 3  Perimenopausal I started a few months ago on 100mg, loved it, finally I slept, no sweats or mood swings, felt so good I went off for a month, could not sleep. Back on again, take at night just prior to bed, sleep is better, not great, bloating, and weight gain omg. Reading this I honestly thought I was starting to have early signs of dementia, mind is so foggy, always tierd, low mood, I think I might piece the cap it's enclosed in and try on my skin. Let you know if it works F 49 30 days

 1  Perimenopause Non stop headaches, sinus pain, heart palpitations & bloating My head was in pain for the entire time I took this medication. It started out as "regular" headaches, but became a combination of both a headache and a sinus headache. I did not have a cold, allergies or any other type of sinus conditions at the time. Also, the fast irregular heart palpitations were terrible. The word that best describes this drug is toxic. F 53 40 days

 1  Peri Menopause Severe Anxiety, Panic Attack, Fear of own brain, Suicidal images/worries, Unable to think of words in sentences, Brain 'flashes' resulting in extreme fear. It took me a while to work out what the culprit was. Always had general anxiety, never medicated. Went on Prometrium and all my troubles started ending with me having a full blown panic attack and spending the day in hospital.. Absolutely horrifying. Been off it for 2 days and am almost back to my normal (sane) self. If I'd only done more research before taking this drug I never would have done it. Been left with PTSD from my 10 day long 'nervous breakdown' which ended a day after I stopped taking this horrible drug. F 50 40 days

PROMETRIUM  (PROGESTERONE):  Progesterone is a type of female hormone (progestin). This medication is similar to the progesterone that your body naturally makes and is given to replace the hormone when your body is not making enough of it. In women who are not pregnant and not going through menopause, this medication is used to restore normal menstrual periods that have stopped for several months (amenorrhea). Progesterone is also used as part of combination hormone replacement therapy with estrogens to reduce menopause symptoms (e.g., hot flashes). Progesterone is added to estrogen replacement therapy to reduce the risk of cancer of the uterus. This medication is not for use in children. Progesterone must not be used to test for pregnancy.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
