Possible Uses for
Panic disorder: Inositol shows some promise for controlling panic attacks and the fear of public places or open spaces (agoraphobia). One study found that inositol is as effective as a prescription medication. However, large-scale clinical trials are needed before inositols effectiveness for panic attacks can be proven.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): There is some evidence that people with OCD who receive inositol by mouth for 6 weeks experience significant improvement.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): Taking a particular form of inositol (isomer D-chiroinositol) by mouth seems to lower triglyceride and testosterone levels, modestly decrease blood pressure, and promote ovulation in obese or insulin resistant women with polycystic ovary syndrome. Myo inositol is thought to be converted to D Chiro inositol in the body. When using Myo inositol for PCOS, the dose should be two-three times higher than using D Chiro inositol alone. Studies into conception show the myo form stimulates ovulation better than the D Chiro form.
Problems breathing in premature infants known as “acute respiratory distress syndrome” when given intravenously (by IV).
Psoriasis brought on or made worse by lithium drug therapy. Inositol doesn’t seem to help psoriasis in people not taking lithium.
FYI: Bipolar disorder: There is some concern that taking too much inositol might make bipolar disorder worse. There is a report of a man with controlled bipolar disorder being hospitalized with extreme agitation and impulsiveness (mania) after drinking several cans of an energy drink
containing inositol, caffeine, taurine, and other ingredients (Red Bull Energy Drink) over a period of 4 days. It is not known if this is related to inositol, caffeine, taurine, a different ingredient, or a combination of the ingredients.
