My mother-in-law who is 91, was given progesterone, and instead of tapering off went off it cold turkey. She became psychotic, and was diagnosed with progesterone withdrawal psychosis. She is very paranoid. I never heard of this before and I wonder what her treatment options are. She is being evaluated still, so no one knows what’s going to happen.

With the right medications your mother-in-law should have a good outcome. It is really important that they get the meds right with her age. It is possible that she will come out of this and it won't happen again. I know how hard it is to "wait" between appointments. Take Good Care

It took quite a while, but she is doing better. She seems like she is slowing down, but she is 91 after all!
