    Anyone take it? What do you take it for? Seen any effects?

    I've read its a good supplement for fat loss, and it has also been shown to be as effective as SSRI's (Zoloft, Prozac) in treating mild to moderate depression and OCD.

    Discuss.

    This was the biggest Inositol thread I found on OT when I searched (2 replies lol).

    I've heard of it used for depression, like an SSRI but with less side effects.

    I've also heard of it being used to treat OCD in high doses, like 12-18g a day.

    And also experimentally to treat PSSD (post SSRI sexual dysfunction) to resensitize certain 5-HT receptors.

    Seems to me though like if it is increasing serotonin it would lower libido, right? But some people have reported that it helps them get boners again and increases libido.

    I take d-chiro inositol but for something completely different (pcos) and have really good results.

    I have read a lot of positive things about myo-inositol for depression & anxiety. Don't personally have any experience taking it for these reasons though.
