Also if by medications this hormone is taken must be done so by a strict physician's supervision or guidance as that if over taken or for prolong use may permanently damage normal functioning or production of the hormone.

Psychologically, it may affect normal behavioural pattern of a human to normal surroundings and activities/actions.
