Good Morning.... I started a very low dose of Bioidentical Progesterone/Testosterone Cream Tuesday. Within 30 minutes, I started feeling funny. Shortly after, Jitters set in, then Nervousness, then Pings of anxiety.....By the time I got home from work that day, I was in my closet crying....Insomnia that night as well. Wednesday, still has the pings of anxiety, but was able to sleep that night... Thursday was fulll blown anxiety, so I went to see my PC physician...she said she had never heard of this, but retook my blood to retest my levels. By the end of the day, I had to call her again because my Anxiety was thru the roof... I drove home which was a hour drive and within 15-20 minutes of being home, I went to my local ER with severe Anxiety.... Of course the ER doctor on duty said it couldn't be my Scrip because it should be out of my body by now.... Anyone that has any knowledge of this, Please respond and give me some advice....

Hi justjay1224,


Welcome to EmpowHER. Bio-identical natural progesterone has the effect of being a natural anti-depressant. For this reason it has helped many women who suffer from greater anxiety during the hormonal changes of menopause.  Some people do feel jitter, nervousness and a little more anxiety when starting an antidepressant medication. With time, they do go away. That might also be the problem. You need to observe your symptoms and if they don’t improve, let your OBGYN know how you are feeling.
