Fluvoxamine to increase neuroactive steroids?


I have just been prescribed Fluoxetine. My anxiety is out of control- I had anxiety before Propecia but it has reached new heights.


Friend 5htp.


Any update on the low dose Prozac?

I tried low, sub milligram dosing of prozac when I first withdrew from fin. It felt like that warmth and relaxing calm that wraps over you that you get from taking an SSRI but it comes on almost immediately. It felt kind of motivating, too.

Sadly, it didnt help at all with the insomnia though, my main symptom. I only did it 3 times as Ive read that inducing 3a HSD is antiandrogenic and inhibits 5ar. I wouldn’t do it again as I wonder if it had made things worse.
