I was prescribed Estelle Duet 1mg (Meda Pharma) 4 months ago and was told I needed be on the tablets for at least 3 months before I felt the 'desired' effects.  I am now finding that once I've started taking the green section of the tablets I am more irritable, snappy and anxious than ever before I  started taking HRT.  I was told this could be due to the progesterone causing my moods.  I am particularly concerned that I have no energy and am currently taking iron and B12 to increase my energy level.  As yet I am not convinced by HRT.  Can anyone relate to my symptoms, I'm age 47 and started having irregular periods in the last three to four years.

    Is the green section the progesterone? I have been on hrt sequi patches for 4 months and my anxiousness is worse. I am in the midst of changing it a bit. I take 100mg of progesterone for 14 days of the month.

    Same with me.  Switched to a higher dose and that solved all my mood issues for the better. Still getting my hot flushes though they were never hot sweats so I can manage my sleep a bit.
