I have anxiety and I've been wanting to try oxytocin nasal spray since forever. I have read really good things about it on social anxiety forums. Many people have reported that the spray helps them feel more relaxed, confident and happy. This sounds exactly like what I need but I still have some questions about it.
The first issue I have with this spray is that it's too expensive. It's not like buying over-the-counter nasal spray. I have student insurance and my doctor has already told me that the insurance wouldn't cover it. I can't afford to pay for the whole thing. I've found cheaper ones online but those look a bit dubious and I don't want to risk my health with something that's poor quality.
The other issue that is bugging me is potential side effects. Oxytocin is called the love hormone so I'm worried that it would mess with my other hormones or cause me to behave strangely with the opposite sex. I don't know if the dose of the nasal spray is enough to carry that risk but it's still something I'm worried about.
