Prometrium(pregnancy hormone drug)?
i was givin this to pervent a miscarriage. does anyone know anything about this drug and if it workes? Asked by Hildegarde Rhames 1 year ago.

Prometrium Why is Prometrium prescribed? Prometrium is prescribed for postmenopausal women who are taking estrogen (hormone replacement therapy); it prevents a buildup of the lining of the uterus and abnormal bleeding. Prometrium also may be prescribed to restore menstruation if your menstrual periods have stopped. Pregnancy Progesterone, a natural hormone that the body makes during pregnancy, has not caused problems. In fact, it is sometimes used in women to treat a certain type of infertility and to aid in egg donor or infertility procedures. Other progestins have not been studied in pregnant women. Be sure to tell your doctor if you become pregnant while using any of the progestins. It is best to use some kind of birth control method while you are receiving progestins in high doses. High doses of progestins are not recommended for use during pregnancy since there have been some reports that they may cause birth defects in the genitals (sex organs) of a male fetus. Also, some of these progestins may cause male-like changes in a female fetus and female-like changes in a male fetus, but these problems usually can be reversed. Low doses of progestins, such as those doses used for contraception, have not caused major problems when used accidentally during pregnancy. Most important fact about Prometrium Prometrium increases the risk of blood clots, which can lead to phlebitis, breathing problems, vision problems, or stroke. If you experience any symptoms that might suggest the onset of a clot-related disorder--pain with swelling, warmth, and redness in a leg vein, coughing or shortness of breath, loss of vision or double vision, migraine, or weakness or numbness in an arm or leg--stop taking Prometrium and see your doctor immediately. How should you take Prometrium? Take Prometrium as directed by your doctor. If Prometrium is prescribed to prevent abnormal buildup of the uterine lining, you will take it once a day for 12 days in a 28-day cycle. If it is prescribed to treat missed menstrual periods, you will take it for 10 days. Prometrium is taken in the evening. --If you miss a dose... Take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Never take 2 doses at the same time. --Storage instructions... Store at room temperature. Protect from light and moisture. What side effects may occur? Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Prometrium. More common side effects may include: Abdominal cramping, back pain, bloating, breast tenderness or pain, chest pain, constipation, coughing, depression, diarrhea, dizziness, emotional instability, fatigue, headache, hot flashes, irritability, joint pain, muscle pain, nausea, night sweats, swelling of hands and feet, upper respiratory infection, urinary problems, vaginal discharge, vaginal dryness, viral infection, vomiting, worry Answered by Evita Maker 1 year ago.

Prometrium is also known as progesterone, the hormone your body produces when you ovulate. It helps thicken the lining of the uterus even more when you take the drug. It is completely safe, and I took it in my last pregnancy (10 years ago) at 8 weeks to prevent miscarriage, and that pregnancy is now a 10 yr old girl Answered by Marita Fineran 1 year ago.

Prometrium is a form of progesterone. I was prescribed 200 mg twice a day vaginally with my son. I truely believe that it helped save my son's life. Before having my son, I had two miscarriage due to low progesterone levels. However the prometrium was not enough to keep my progesterone levels high enough so I was started on daily injections of 50 mg of progesterone. Thank you Jesus for the progesterone and Dr. Brown who prescribed it, becauce I am now a proud mother of a 21.5 month old son. Answered by Hyun Shawver 1 year ago.

Special warnings about Prometrium To rule out cancer and other problems before you start taking Prometrium, your doctor will give you a complete physical exam, including examination of your breasts and pelvic organs. You also should have a Pap test (cervical smear). Tell your doctor if you experience any irregular vaginal bleeding while taking this medication. Remember that Prometrium can cause clot-related disorders. Check with your doctor immediately if you experience any of the warning signs listed in "Most important fact about this drug." Prometrium may cause some degree of fluid retention. If you have a medical condition that could be made worse by fluid retention--such as epilepsy, migraine, asthma, or a heart or kidney problem--make sure your doctor knows about it. Prometrium makes some women depressed. If you've suffered from serious depression in the past, alert your doctor if you think you're having a relapse You will probably need to stop taking Prometrium. Prometrium has a slight effect on insulin and blood sugar levels. If you have diabetes, your doctor will want to watch you closely while you are taking this drug. Prometrium may make you dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how this medication affects you. If you experience extreme drowsiness or dizziness, the doctor may tell you to take Prometrium at bedtime. Because progesterone is processed in the liver and kidneys, the doctor will monitor you closely if you have a mild liver or kidney disorder. If you have severe liver disease, the drug should not be used at all. Answered by Ron Rothenbach 1 year ago.

hello! The same thing happened to me when i started having sex. I did not get my period for three months and all the pregnancy tests were negative. A doctor also gave me some kind of pill to make my period come and it was supposed to be effective in a week. It took me 3 weeks to get it. I think you just need to relax, don't think too much about it and if you have sex during that time make sure you use protection so you dont panic. Again, just relax do some excersiceand dont think about it so much. Good luck!! Answered by Candy Trilli 1 year ago.

(Yes I have to admit I eat a lot of sweets, but that is nothing unusual either) Last normal cycle was Oct. 24th. Hpt neg. Nurse said to wait a few more days and test again. Couldn't wait a few more days and went to Family Doc. today. Urine neg. and she took a blood test. She said I could be changing cycles, but I am not pre menopausal. (36) Has anyone here ever "changed cycles"? Test will be back tomorrow. Nurse from Gyn called this evening and said they called in a prescription for Prometrium to start my cycle. Has anyone taken this before? I'm not going to take it until I know why I skipped my period. They didn't even want to see me at the Gyn's office. I wonder if this is because I told her we used a condom. Answered by Ollie Rieger 1 year ago.

Well, the Prometrium will not hurt the baby if you are pregnant. It's often given to pregnant women who have low progesterone early on to ward off miscarriage, so it's perfectly safe to take the Prometrium. It will not harm you or any potential babies you are carrying because it's identical to the hormones your body makes all on its own. Prometrium doesn't make you get your period. Rather, you take it and then when you get done taking it, the LACK of progesterone (supplied previously by the Prometrium) induces a period. It works this way naturally in your body, too. You ovulate (release an egg from your ovary). This signals the corpus luteum to start making progesterone after ovulation. When the corpus luteum dies, it stops making progesterone. Then you get your period. The body naturally knows to start a period AFTER this rise and then fall of progesterone. If you haven't ovulated, your body needs the rise of taking the Prometrium and the fall of stopping it to cause you to get your period. If you're pregnant, your body will be making its own progesterone, and you will not get your period after stopping the Prometrium. It's unlikely you're pregnant, though, as most women would have a +HPT by the time they were 8 days late. What concerns me more, though, is the general flippancy with which your doctor's office seems to be treating you. You are over 35. Are you trying to get pregnant (you said you used a condom so maybe not?). Your doctor should want to do something about that if you are. Even though you're by no means old, it is time to get the ball rolling if you are TTC. Fertility rates do decline with age. A couple in their early twenties has an 86% chance of getting pregnant in a year of unprotected intercourse. A couple ages 30-34 has a 63% chance, and a couple 35-39 has a 52% chance of getting pregnant within a year. So if you're TTC, you might want to be a bit aggressive with your doctor about figuring out what's going on. Could be that you're not ovulating as often as you'd like due to PCOS or even premature ovarian failure. Could be that you have a thyroid problem, could be that your cycles are lengthening as you age, or it COULD BE NOTHING. You should get it checked out. If you're not trying to get pregnant, I still suggest finding out the cause of your irregularity because it could indicate another problem. For instance, women with untreated PCOS have a higher incidence of endometrial cancer as they age. So if you have PCOS, you want to get treated for it so that this increased risk is lowered. That's just one example of something that could be going on in your body. Maybe nothing is wrong at all. It's not unusual even for a woman of perfect reproductive health to have the occasional delayed period because she didn't ovulate once in a blue moon. But if it happens repeatedly, I suggest making an appointment with your OBGYN to sit down and talk one-on-one with him or her to determine what steps to take next. If your OBGYN won't see you, find a new one. It's your health, and sometimes you have to be the squeaky wheel just to be heard. Good luck and I hope you get the outcome you want! Answered by Leonard Liestman 1 year ago.

I would get another blood test done in a few days. I had the same thing happen to me years ago and had a faint positive on a home pregnancy test and a blood test came out negative. I did start my period a few days later so obviously I wasn't pregnant. A few months later I did another home test (I was trying to have a second child) and almost immediately the positive line showed up quite clearly and a blood test confirmed I was pregnant. So, I think if it is a very faint positive line on a home test (for whatever reason..still don't know why I had a faint positive line years ago either when I wasn't pregnant) and a negative result from a blood test I would tend to think you are not pregnant but if you don't get your period in a few days go back for another blood test. Answered by Jessica Allara 1 year ago.

It is usually normal procedure to take the pregnancy test at the doctor's office in an case like this, however, urine tests at the doctor's office are JUST as accurate as the ones over the counter. A urine test is only a little less accurate than a blood test. Chances are you are not pregnant, and YES, this has happened to me before. Good idea to wait until after the results to start your meds., but the doc. is probably right. Answered by Kenisha Furness 1 year ago.

Prometrium is also known as progesterone, the hormone your body produces when you ovulate. It helps thicken the lining of the uterus even more when you take the drug. It is completely safe, and I took it in my last pregnancy (10 years ago) at 8 weeks to prevent miscarriage, and that pregnancy is now a 10 yr old girl Answered by Marion Luquette 1 year ago.

Prometrium is a form of progesterone. I was prescribed 200 mg twice a day vaginally with my son. I truely believe that it helped save my son's life. Before having my son, I had two miscarriage due to low progesterone levels. However the prometrium was not enough to keep my progesterone levels high enough so I was started on daily injections of 50 mg of progesterone. Thank you Jesus for the progesterone and Dr. Brown who prescribed it, becauce I am now a proud mother of a 21.5 month old son. Answered by Antonette Onorata 1 year ago.

Why is Prometrium prescribed? Prometrium is prescribed for postmenopausal women who are taking estrogen (hormone replacement therapy); it prevents a buildup of the lining of the uterus and abnormal bleeding. Prometrium also may be prescribed to restore menstruation if your menstrual periods have stopped. Most important fact about Prometrium Prometrium increases the risk of blood clots, which can lead to phlebitis, breathing problems, vision problems, or stroke. If you experience any symptoms that might suggest the onset of a clot-related disorder--pain with swelling, warmth, and redness in a leg vein, coughing or shortness of breath, loss of vision or double vision, migraine, or weakness or numbness in an arm or leg--stop taking Prometrium and see your doctor immediately. Special warnings about Prometrium To rule out cancer and other problems before you start taking Prometrium, your doctor will give you a complete physical exam, including examination of your breasts and pelvic organs. You also should have a Pap test (cervical smear). Tell your doctor if you experience any irregular vaginal bleeding while taking this medication. Remember that Prometrium can cause clot-related disorders. Check with your doctor immediately if you experience any of the warning signs listed in "Most important fact about this drug." Prometrium may cause some degree of fluid retention. If you have a medical condition that could be made worse by fluid retention--such as epilepsy, migraine, asthma, or a heart or kidney problem--make sure your doctor knows about it. Prometrium makes some women depressed. If you've suffered from serious depression in the past, alert your doctor if you think you're having a relapse You will probably need to stop taking Prometrium. Prometrium has a slight effect on insulin and blood sugar levels. If you have diabetes, your doctor will want to watch you closely while you are taking this drug. Prometrium may make you dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how this medication affects you. If you experience extreme drowsiness or dizziness, the doctor may tell you to take Prometrium at bedtime. Because progesterone is processed in the liver and kidneys, the doctor will monitor you closely if you have a mild liver or kidney disorder. If you have severe liver disease, the drug should not be used at all. Answered by Rebekah Cuadrado 1 year ago.

hello! The same thing happened to me when i started having sex. I did not get my period for three months and all the pregnancy tests were negative. A doctor also gave me some kind of pill to make my period come and it was supposed to be effective in a week. It took me 3 weeks to get it. I think you just need to relax, don't think too much about it and if you have sex during that time make sure you use protection so you dont panic. Again, just relax do some excersiceand dont think about it so much. Good luck!! Answered by Bethann Jamar 1 year ago.

Well, the Prometrium will not hurt the baby if you are pregnant. It's often given to pregnant women who have low progesterone early on to ward off miscarriage, so it's perfectly safe to take the Prometrium. It will not harm you or any potential babies you are carrying because it's identical to the hormones your body makes all on its own. Prometrium doesn't make you get your period. Rather, you take it and then when you get done taking it, the LACK of progesterone (supplied previously by the Prometrium) induces a period. It works this way naturally in your body, too. You ovulate (release an egg from your ovary). This signals the corpus luteum to start making progesterone after ovulation. When the corpus luteum dies, it stops making progesterone. Then you get your period. The body naturally knows to start a period AFTER this rise and then fall of progesterone. If you haven't ovulated, your body needs the rise of taking the Prometrium and the fall of stopping it to cause you to get your period. If you're pregnant, your body will be making its own progesterone, and you will not get your period after stopping the Prometrium. It's unlikely you're pregnant, though, as most women would have a +HPT by the time they were 8 days late. What concerns me more, though, is the general flippancy with which your doctor's office seems to be treating you. You are over 35. Are you trying to get pregnant (you said you used a condom so maybe not?). Your doctor should want to do something about that if you are. Even though you're by no means old, it is time to get the ball rolling if you are TTC. Fertility rates do decline with age. A couple in their early twenties has an 86% chance of getting pregnant in a year of unprotected intercourse. A couple ages 30-34 has a 63% chance, and a couple 35-39 has a 52% chance of getting pregnant within a year. So if you're TTC, you might want to be a bit aggressive with your doctor about figuring out what's going on. Could be that you're not ovulating as often as you'd like due to PCOS or even premature ovarian failure. Could be that you have a thyroid problem, could be that your cycles are lengthening as you age, or it COULD BE NOTHING. You should get it checked out. If you're not trying to get pregnant, I still suggest finding out the cause of your irregularity because it could indicate another problem. For instance, women with untreated PCOS have a higher incidence of endometrial cancer as they age. So if you have PCOS, you want to get treated for it so that this increased risk is lowered. That's just one example of something that could be going on in your body. Maybe nothing is wrong at all. It's not unusual even for a woman of perfect reproductive health to have the occasional delayed period because she didn't ovulate once in a blue moon. But if it happens repeatedly, I suggest making an appointment with your OBGYN to sit down and talk one-on-one with him or her to determine what steps to take next. If your OBGYN won't see you, find a new one. It's your health, and sometimes you have to be the squeaky wheel just to be heard. Good luck and I hope you get the outcome you want! Answered by Karren Devoss 1 year ago.

I would get another blood test done in a few days. I had the same thing happen to me years ago and had a faint positive on a home pregnancy test and a blood test came out negative. I did start my period a few days later so obviously I wasn't pregnant. A few months later I did another home test (I was trying to have a second child) and almost immediately the positive line showed up quite clearly and a blood test confirmed I was pregnant. So, I think if it is a very faint positive line on a home test (for whatever reason..still don't know why I had a faint positive line years ago either when I wasn't pregnant) and a negative result from a blood test I would tend to think you are not pregnant but if you don't get your period in a few days go back for another blood test.

It is usually normal procedure to take the pregnancy test at the doctor's office in an case like this, however, urine tests at the doctor's office are JUST as accurate as the ones over the counter. A urine test is only a little less accurate than a blood test. Chances are you are not pregnant, and YES, this has happened to me before. Good idea to wait until after the results to start your meds., but the doc. is probably right. Answered by Gwen Beckwith 1 year ago.

Pregnancy Progesterone, a natural hormone that the body makes during pregnancy, has not caused problems. In fact, it is sometimes used in women to treat a certain type of infertility and to aid in egg donor or infertility procedures. Other progestins have not been studied in pregnant women. Be sure to tell your doctor if you become pregnant while using any of the progestins. It is best to use some kind of birth control method while you are receiving progestins in high doses. High doses of progestins are not recommended for use during pregnancy since there have been some reports that they may cause birth defects in the genitals (sex organs) of a male fetus.

hello! The same thing happened to me when i started having sex. I did not get my period for three months and all the pregnancy tests were negative. A doctor also gave me some kind of pill to make my period come and it was supposed to be effective in a week. It took me 3 weeks to get it. I think you just need to relax, don't think too much about it and if you have sex during that time make sure you use protection so you dont panic. Again, just relax do some excersiceand dont think about it so much. Good luck!! Answered by Marguerita Busing 1 year ago.

(Yes I have to admit I eat a lot of sweets, but that is nothing unusual either) Last normal cycle was Oct. 24th. Hpt neg. Nurse said to wait a few more days and test again. Couldn't wait a few more days and went to Family Doc. today. Urine neg. and she took a blood test. She said I could be changing cycles, but I am not pre menopausal. (36) Has anyone here ever "changed cycles"? Test will be back tomorrow. Nurse from Gyn called this evening and said they called in a prescription for Prometrium to start my cycle. Has anyone taken this before? I'm not going to take it until I know why I skipped my period. They didn't even want to see me at the Gyn's office. I wonder if this is because I told her we used a condom. Answered by Torrie Grinvalsky 1 year ago.

Well, the Prometrium will not hurt the baby if you are pregnant. It's often given to pregnant women who have low progesterone early on to ward off miscarriage, so it's perfectly safe to take the Prometrium. It will not harm you or any potential babies you are carrying because it's identical to the hormones your body makes all on its own. Prometrium doesn't make you get your period. Rather, you take it and then when you get done taking it, the LACK of progesterone (supplied previously by the Prometrium) induces a period. It works this way naturally in your body, too. You ovulate (release an egg from your ovary). This signals the corpus luteum to start making progesterone after ovulation. When the corpus luteum dies, it stops making progesterone. Then you get your period. The body naturally knows to start a period AFTER this rise and then fall of progesterone. If you haven't ovulated, your body needs the rise of taking the Prometrium and the fall of stopping it to cause you to get your period. If you're pregnant, your body will be making its own progesterone, and you will not get your period after stopping the Prometrium. It's unlikely you're pregnant, though, as most women would have a +HPT by the time they were 8 days late. What concerns me more, though, is the general flippancy with which your doctor's office seems to be treating you. You are over 35. Are you trying to get pregnant (you said you used a condom so maybe not?). Your doctor should want to do something about that if you are. Even though you're by no means old, it is time to get the ball rolling if you are TTC. Fertility rates do decline with age. A couple in their early twenties has an 86% chance of getting pregnant in a year of unprotected intercourse. A couple ages 30-34 has a 63% chance, and a couple 35-39 has a 52% chance of getting pregnant within a year. So if you're TTC, you might want to be a bit aggressive with your doctor about figuring out what's going on. Could be that you're not ovulating as often as you'd like due to PCOS or even premature ovarian failure. Could be that you have a thyroid problem, could be that your cycles are lengthening as you age, or it COULD BE NOTHING. You should get it checked out. If you're not trying to get pregnant, I still suggest finding out the cause of your irregularity because it could indicate another problem. For instance, women with untreated PCOS have a higher incidence of endometrial cancer as they age. So if you have PCOS, you want to get treated for it so that this increased risk is lowered. That's just one example of something that could be going on in your body. Maybe nothing is wrong at all. It's not unusual even for a woman of perfect reproductive health to have the occasional delayed period because she didn't ovulate once in a blue moon. But if it happens repeatedly, I suggest making an appointment with your OBGYN to sit down and talk one-on-one with him or her to determine what steps to take next. If your OBGYN won't see you, find a new one. It's your health, and sometimes you have to be the squeaky wheel just to be heard. Good luck and I hope you get the outcome you want! Answered by Vicenta Wiman 1 year ago.

I would get another blood test done in a few days. I had the same thing happen to me years ago and had a faint positive on a home pregnancy test and a blood test came out negative. I did start my period a few days later so obviously I wasn't pregnant. A few months later I did another home test (I was trying to have a second child) and almost immediately the positive line showed up quite clearly and a blood test confirmed I was pregnant. So, I think if it is a very faint positive line on a home test (for whatever reason..still don't know why I had a faint positive line years ago either when I wasn't pregnant) and a negative result from a blood test I would tend to think you are not pregnant but if you don't get your period in a few days go back for another blood test. Answered by Dorcas Lalata 1 year ago.

It is usually normal procedure to take the pregnancy test at the doctor's office in an case like this, however, urine tests at the doctor's office are JUST as accurate as the ones over the counter. A urine test is only a little less accurate than a blood test. Chances are you are not pregnant, and YES, this has happened to me before. Good idea to wait until after the results to start your meds., but the doc. is probably right. Answered by Janita Peaslee 1 year ago.

Prometrium(pregnancy hormone drug)?
i was givin this to pervent a miscarriage. does anyone know anything about this drug and if it workes? Asked by Hayley Taveras 1 year ago.

Prometrium Why is Prometrium prescribed? Prometrium is prescribed for postmenopausal women who are taking estrogen (hormone replacement therapy); it prevents a buildup of the lining of the uterus and abnormal bleeding. Prometrium also may be prescribed to restore menstruation if your menstrual periods have stopped. Pregnancy Progesterone, a natural hormone that the body makes during pregnancy, has not caused problems. In fact, it is sometimes used in women to treat a certain type of infertility and to aid in egg donor or infertility procedures. Other progestins have not been studied in pregnant women. Be sure to tell your doctor if you become pregnant while using any of the progestins. It is best to use some kind of birth control method while you are receiving progestins in high doses. High doses of progestins are not recommended for use during pregnancy since there have been some reports that they may cause birth defects in the genitals (sex organs) of a male fetus. Also, some of these progestins may cause male-like changes in a female fetus and female-like changes in a male fetus, but these problems usually can be reversed. Low doses of progestins, such as those doses used for contraception, have not caused major problems when used accidentally during pregnancy. Most important fact about Prometrium Prometrium increases the risk of blood clots, which can lead to phlebitis, breathing problems, vision problems, or stroke. If you experience any symptoms that might suggest the onset of a clot-related disorder--pain with swelling, warmth, and redness in a leg vein, coughing or shortness of breath, loss of vision or double vision, migraine, or weakness or numbness in an arm or leg--stop taking Prometrium and see your doctor immediately. How should you take Prometrium? Take Prometrium as directed by your doctor. If Prometrium is prescribed to prevent abnormal buildup of the uterine lining, you will take it once a day for 12 days in a 28-day cycle. If it is prescribed to treat missed menstrual periods, you will take it for 10 days. Prometrium is taken in the evening. --If you miss a dose... Take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Never take 2 doses at the same time. --Storage instructions... Store at room temperature. Protect from light and moisture. What side effects may occur? Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Prometrium. More common side effects may include: Abdominal cramping, back pain, bloating, breast tenderness or pain, chest pain, constipation, coughing, depression, diarrhea, dizziness, emotional instability, fatigue, headache, hot flashes, irritability, joint pain, muscle pain, nausea, night sweats, swelling of hands and feet, upper respiratory infection, urinary problems, vaginal discharge, vaginal dryness, viral infection, vomiting, worry Answered by Lucila Culverson 1 year ago.

Prometrium is also known as progesterone, the hormone your body produces when you ovulate. It helps thicken the lining of the uterus even more when you take the drug. It is completely safe, and I took it in my last pregnancy (10 years ago) at 8 weeks to prevent miscarriage, and that pregnancy is now a 10 yr old girl Answered by Margo Pigram 1 year ago.

Prometrium is a form of progesterone. I was prescribed 200 mg twice a day vaginally with my son. I truely believe that it helped save my son's life. Before having my son, I had two miscarriage due to low progesterone levels. However the prometrium was not enough to keep my progesterone levels high enough so I was started on daily injections of 50 mg of progesterone. Thank you Jesus for the progesterone and Dr. Brown who prescribed it, becauce I am now a proud mother of a 21.5 month old son. Answered by Ching Bussie 1 year ago.

Special warnings about Prometrium To rule out cancer and other problems before you start taking Prometrium, your doctor will give you a complete physical exam, including examination of your breasts and pelvic organs. You also should have a Pap test (cervical smear). Tell your doctor if you experience any irregular vaginal bleeding while taking this medication. Remember that Prometrium can cause clot-related disorders. Check with your doctor immediately if you experience any of the warning signs listed in "Most important fact about this drug." Prometrium may cause some degree of fluid retention. If you have a medical condition that could be made worse by fluid retention--such as epilepsy, migraine, asthma, or a heart or kidney problem--make sure your doctor knows about it. Prometrium makes some women depressed. If you've suffered from serious depression in the past, alert your doctor if you think you're having a relapse You will probably need to stop taking Prometrium. Prometrium has a slight effect on insulin and blood sugar levels. If you have diabetes, your doctor will want to watch you closely while you are taking this drug. Prometrium may make you dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how this medication affects you. If you experience extreme drowsiness or dizziness, the doctor may tell you to take Prometrium at bedtime. Because progesterone is processed in the liver and kidneys, the doctor will monitor you closely if you have a mild liver or kidney disorder. If you have severe liver disease, the drug should not be used at all. Answered by Dani Robak 1 year ago.
