    Default Androsterone and reduced anxiety


    RM, Marini H, Won-Joo K, and Rogawski MA (2005) Anticonvulsant activity of androsterone and etiocholanolone.

    Epilepsia 46:819–827.

    "Androstanediol is a positive modulator of
    GABAA receptors (Frye et al., 1996) with

    potent anxiolytic
    and anticonvulsant activity (Frye and Reed, 1998; Reddy,
    2004a,b); recently, we confirmed that

    androsterone has similar
    systemic activities (Kaminski et al., 2005)."

    An anxiolytic is any drug or therapy

    used in the treatment of anxiety disorders. I am following up on this recent report to determine whether GABA

    interaction might be the means by which androsterone (as used in SoE for men) might indicate reduced anxiety in the

    wearer as well as reduce anxiety in people (especially women) who are exposed to it.

    It's somewhat satisfying

    to see the Forum members indicate this effect, but more satisfying to find scientific support for the effect.
