Susten 100 mg/1ml is a female growth hormone important for controlling the ovulation and menstrual cycle. Progesterone (the main active salt composition of Susten) affects periods in women who have not yet reached the menopausal age but have stopped getting menstrual periods due to progesterone deficiency in their bodies. It also effectively inhibits overgrowth in the uterine lining in post-menopausal women who get estrogen by undergoing HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy).
Some progesterone supplements contain peanut oil, so be careful if you are allergic to peanuts. Read the labels and ingredients in detail. Always start any new medications after consulting a doctor or a physician and let him/her know about all of your medical histories.
Some special medical testing and dosage may be required if you have these conditions or have a history. They are heart disease; circulatory problems; coronary artery disease risk factors like smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or obesity; migraines; asthma; kidney disease; seizures or epilepsy; depression; or diabetes.
Also, don’t take Progesterone without advice from your doctor if you are nursing a baby, as it can pass into breast milk and be harmful to your child. Let your doctor know at any cost about your breastfeeding.
Interaction with other Medications
There may be certain medications which may interfere with Progesterone or vice versa. Tell your doctor about your medications, including prescribed OTC vitamins and herbal products. Don’t take a new medication without the advice of your doctor.
Some medications not compatible with Progesterone are drugs that affect liver functioning to remove Progesterone from the body, such as azole antifungals, including itraconazole, rifamycins rifabutin, St. John's wort and certain anti-seizure medicines including carbamazepine/phenytoin.
Progesterone may cause some abnormality in medical tests and lead to faulty test results. Notify the lab staff and all doctors about your progesterone medication.
As far as possible, never miss a progesterone dose. But if you miss your scheduled dose due to uncontrollable circumstances, take it as soon as possible. Skip it if the time for the next dose is near. Don’t overdose on medication, as it may cause some serious conditions.

For detailed instructions, read the label on the medication. Ask your doctor or the pharmacist if you have the smallest of doubts. Progesterone can be taken orally, via vaginal gel, applied on the skin via cream and injected directly into a bloodstream with a vial.
