Oxytocin is a hormone produced in the hypothalamus, a small region of the brain. It is known as the “love hormone” because it is released during social bonding activities such as hugging, kissing or cuddling. In women, oxytocin plays a key role in childbirth and breastfeeding. In men, it helps regulate the prostate and may enhance sexual function.
Oxytocin is also believed to have a calming effect, reducing stress and anxiety and can now be used as a treatment for depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders. American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides compounded oxytocin to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and online nationwide.
Compounded Oxytocin For Anxiety And Depression
Compounded oxytocin is a customized form of the hormone that is prepared by a compounding pharmacy. It is not available as a commercial medication, but it can be prescribed by a healthcare provider and prepared by a compounding pharmacist.
Compounded oxytocin is typically administered via a nasal spray. This allows the hormone to be absorbed quickly and efficiently into the bloodstream. The dosage and frequency of administration will depend on the individual’s needs and medical history.
Studies have shown that oxytocin can help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. It has also been shown to improve social functioning and increase feelings of trust and empathy. However, more research is needed to determine the optimal dose and duration of treatment.
Why Should I Use a Compounded Formulation for Oxytocin?
There are several reasons why a compounded formulation of oxytocin may be preferable to a commercial medication. First, compounded medications can be customized to meet the specific needs of the patient. This can be particularly important for individuals who have unique medical conditions or who are taking other medications that could interact with oxytocin.
Second, compounded medications can be prepared in a variety of forms, including nasal sprays, creams, gels, and capsules. This allows healthcare providers to choose the most appropriate delivery method for each patient.
Third, compounded medications are typically prepared using high-quality ingredients in a sterile environment. This can help reduce the risk of contamination and ensure that the medication is safe and effective.
Finally, compounding pharmacies can work closely with healthcare providers to ensure that each patient receives the best possible care. This can include monitoring the patient’s response to treatment, adjusting the dosage as needed, and providing education and support.
