The NEW SCIENTIST article published in 19 Jan 2002 stated:
“Locked inside our brain is the most powerful sedative, anti-anxiety drug and painkiller all rolled into one. This magical compound derives from the hormone PROGESTERONE …"
Researchers have found that it is the breakdown products of progesterone that have such a potent anaesthetic and analgesic effect. “During pregnancy, for example, as a woman comes close to term, the levels of these breakdown products of progesterone are extremely high”, says Jeremy Lambert, a neuropharmacologist at the University of Dundee.

Only the natural hormone will do this, the synthetic compounds used in the contraceptive pill, etc. do not work in the same way.
Fortunately, this natural analgesic and anxiolytic is not exclusive to women. There are enzymes in the brain and spinal cord of both men and women that produce similar breakdown compounds of progesterone, known as neurosteroids, and they may act as analgesics, anticonvulsants and even anaesthetics……”
Progesterone against Panic Attack is a Natural Treatment of Anxiety
Progesterone is considered to be a neurosteroid because it affects the mood and behaviour of a person. It is a complex production of chemicals inside the central nervous system which consequently affects how nerves function all over the body.
Progesterone is also found to improve the quality of GABA’s calming effects and repress the excitatory glutamate response. A calming effect is usually noticed and felt within 3-10 minutes after progesterone treatment, either by injection or topical, has been administered.
The response of progesterone as an anti-anxiety treatment is similar to that of benzodiazepine drugs, but with no addictive risks.
Progesterone against panic attacks work by switching on the GABA receptor sites. GABA is a calming neurotransmitter.
Unbalanced blood glucose can result to anxiety and panic attack symptoms. Progesterone can certainly help achieve a stabilised blood glucose level. Oestrogen, however, contributes otherwise to the level of blood glucose.
Anxiety or panic attack is triggered by sudden stress situations. Stress is always present in our daily lives. Using progesterone will balance the blood glucose, and then anxiety can be very much alleviated.
Anxiety Panic Attack Symptoms and their Common Treatments
Benzodiazepine (BZD) is the common drug to treat anxiety, severe anxiety and psychosis. Valium or diazepam is a form of this drug. Occasionally SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) antidepressants are also used.
It is found out, however, that patients with anxiety disorder who are using diazepam on a low dose but for a long period became addicted and dependent to this drug.
Diazepam and other BZDs are usually given orally, but patients who have panic attacks may be given intravenously. This drug is also given to alleviate muscle spasms, anxiety, and seizure. Agitation caused by alcohol withdrawal is better control with the use of BZDs.
In addition, also bear in mind that diazepam and BZD drugs can increase aggression, anger, mania and hypomania. It also increases the possibility of suicidal thoughts, anxiety, violence, and schizophrenia. To combine these drugs with alcohol is even more harmful.
When applying Progesterone against panic attack topical medications, a substantial amount of cream should be put on. When you achieve the desired effect then slowly lower the amount until you reach your maintenance dose. This medication has the same effect, but with no harmful side effects, just like many anti-depressants in the market, and yes Prozac included.
