Progesterone making me very tired/sleepy...

I had a saliva test done and it showed low Testosterone and very low Progesteron....Estrdiol (sp?) was fine. The doc wrote a prescription for a compounding pharmacy for oral drops for bother harmones. After some time, we re-took the saliva test and the testosterone had gone up quite a bit, but the progesterone just a bit. The doc then had me go on Prometrium 100mg/day...I am findint the Progesterone to make me very sleepy/tired. The doc says that this wouldn't be the Progesterone, but the compounding Pharmacist said that it could make me feel this way. Not quite sure what to do, as my body needs the progesterone level to go up, but I find it hard to function. So I find myself not taking it everyday.
Any ideas?

I was hypothyroid many years ago, went on med, lost a bunch of weight and somehow my thyroid became normal!! The last time I had my thyroid checked (a couple of years ago....I think) it was still fine.

Yes, the Prometrium makes you tired, this is one of the side effects of the bio-identical progesterone. I take my capsules (200mg) at bedtime and it helps me fall asleep.
