I would definitely do 1 in the am, 1 in the afternoon and 1 in the evening. I also did 300mg and spaced them out just like this. Its oral your taking right?

I'm only on 100mg, and I get horribly dizzy for about a half hour after they hit my system. It is awful! In the pamphlet it says it is a common side effect, which is why if you're only doing one dose a day, they will almost always tell you to take it at bedtime. I'm sorry! I can't imagine having to take 3x what I'm taking now, because it already makes me feel like crap!

I took mine vaginally so I didn't get any side effects at all. I was really lucky.

I did get dizzy too. i'm not sure how much I was taking, but it was twice a day. It does go away eventually, mine went away after the 2nd or 3rd month of taking it.

I took only 100mg vaginally and WOW I was super dizzy. I think the blood thinners made that worse for me.

I was on 200 but upped it to 300 after the spotting this weekend. I take it at 8 a.m., 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. I haven't been too dizzy, but the increase has made me soooo nauseous. I talked to my doctor about it today (admitted I had increased my dosage) and he said while it will not hurt me that 200 mg is way more than enough to help. I told him some women were taking 400 and more and he said that is way too much. He claimed it didn't help anymore but that the side affects will be worse as you up the dose. I will say that I finally did get used to the dosage and the nausea got a little better yesterday. So hopefully, you dizziness will get better too as you get used to the higher dosage.

I was taking one dose of 200mg vaginally once a day and never felt dizzy. At least I don't remember it doing that. Although it did make me super tired. While doing IVF I took 400mg a day and a 1cc shot of PIO. My progesterone was 200 and something though when they checked it. Needless to say I did not get pregnant that IVF cycle anyway. I also did not have side effects from that much either besides being moody and tired.

Thank you Shortcake for my beautiful siggy!

I also got dizzy with mine. My doctor had me take one right before bed, then set my alarm for 2-3am and then the afternoon one I had to take a small nap. I had horrible side effects from it.
