Intranasal Oxytocin Reduces Negative Effects, Improves Cognitive Function in Schizophrenia

Adjunctive intranasal oxytocin improves symptoms of schizophrenia, particularly negative symptoms, and these improvements may be related to the gray matter volume of the anterior cingulated cortex and insula, according to an open-label, nonrandomized, 12-week study published in Postgraduate Medicine. In addition, oxytocin may improve verbal fluency in patients with schizophrenia.


My brother does oxytocin. I’ve always wanted to try it.

Is this for autism?

Better be sure it’s not Oxycontin (an opiod). Oxytocin is the hormone.
