Association between serum cholesterol, brain serotonin, and anxiety: a study in simvastatin administered experimental animals [2014, full text]

http://www.ijnpnd.co...3;aulast=Thomas

Conclusion: Hence these experimental results have established the pharmacological evidence to the hypothesis for the relation between serum cholesterol, brain serotonin, and symptoms of anxiety and also confirm that long-term administration of lipophilic statins can lead to anxiety.

and simvastatin is what I'm taking ... rather, was taking... although I need to check to see if I need to dose down gradually on this stuff ... anything that could cause anxiety is poison for me ...
