Oxytocin for Anxiety and Depression
The body produces certain levels of oxytocin naturally but sometimes this production can be compromised. Oxytocin is released during social interaction, sexual intercourse, and labor. It helps us form emotional connections with others and creates a stronger bond in relationships.
Oxytocin is a peptide hormone and can be supplemented as part of a treatment plan. For patients suffering from problems with sexual arousal or anxiety, oxytocin can be a valuable addition to their lifestyle treatment plan. At the clinical level, oxytocin can be used to induce and strengthen contractions during labor and can also stimulate postpartum breast milk.

Oxytocin Dosages at American Integrative Pharmacy
Your physician will determine the appropriate amount of oxytocin based on your medical or health conditions. They will discuss starting doses and potential side effects. Your specific dosage instructions must be adhered to at all times as too much oxytocin can have an impact on other medications you may be taking.
Our goal is to work closely with you and your physician to develop the ideal dosage that works for your body and symptoms while minimizing potential side effects.
