My new doc prescribed this to me today. Is anyone familiar with it or have takin it.
It is a neuro active steroid hormone which is claimed to reduce anxiety by modulating GABA(A) receptors. From the little feedback I've had, it seems to help some and not others.
The biggest negatives seems to be than in some it can trigger heart palpitations/irregular heart beats, and it may be quite stimulating and cause insomnia.
If it doesn't work, or the side-effects are too uncomfortable, ask for hydroxyzine, a antihistamine with anti anxiety properties if this doctor is a benzophobe, which seems likely.
In the long term an antidepressant would be a better bet than either pregnenolone, hydroxyzine, or the benzodiazepines.
