Low dose Prozac to raise Allopregnanolone


Has anyone taken low dose prozac in the last few years? I’ve read posts from years ago about members doing it, and it seems to improve mood. I’m thinking of taking some but want to hear personal experiences about it from other people first.


The thing with Prozac is that I believe the reason it raises allopregnenolone is by preventing the current amount of allo in your body from oxidizing back to 5α-dihydroprogesterone instead of generating new allo.

Unless I misunderstood the paper which is a very real possibility.


I agree with your interpretation of the study… so you would need allopregnanolone to begin with.
