When prometrium (micronized progesterone) stimulates instead of sedates a perimenopausal woman what should be taken? Estrogen in combo with prometrium (micronized progesterone)?

In brief: Go see your doctor

While our impression of estrogen for perimenopausal women has changed dramatically over the last decade, it still should be used for right reason, and sedation is not one of them. So go see your prescribing doctor & tell her/him about your side effects so that s/he can offer you some alternatives (rather than just throw more medications at you).
