dydrogesterone, estradiol hemihydrate (1/5mg) for menopause

dydrogesterone, estradiol hemihydrate (1/5mg) for menopause

To start off with it seemed to help… But after a few weeks I started waking up in the mornings really grumpy and was negative all day long towards myself, everything and everyone… i did have these symptoms before I started using this (I also take the antidepressant paroxetine; not exactly the best combination!). But it does seem that they have got worse since I have been taking this hormone pre...
