    I've been taking DHEA 15mg for 1yr. I've experience the well being effects, gained 10lbs, excessive hair growth on my legs (which I never had to use a razor, maybe annually) and the deepening voice as well, most distressingly the loss of my hair combined with oily and acne conditions on my scalp. If I didn't was my hair daily, by the 2nd day you'd think I never used a shower. I sto ... Show Full Comment

    I used DHEA for at least 4 years in the 1990s when I was in my late 30s-early 40s. I felt a LOT more energy when on it and better in other ways, as well. But an MD convinced me that it was not good to use it because it is a steroid. Lately, now that I am 60, I am feeling like I need something like this and just ordered another bottle for the first time in over 16 years. I used it very cautiously t ... Show Full Comment

    At 76, I have been taking 25mg of DHEA twice a day for over 30 years. I've never felt better. Everything works. No stents, knee or hip replacements, good diet, only light exercise. Just fair memory & eyesight, poor hearing, but good general health. How much has DHEA helped? It's hard to say for sure, but I intend to continue taking it.

    I have just begun to take DHEA and have been feeling a lot better, not so tired as I have been in the past. Looking forward to how I will be feeling in a month of taking it.

    I have taken 5 mg daily of DHEA for over 25 years and am now 72 yo, female and in excellent health. Endurance athlete for over 50 years and still going strong and feel great. I bike 70 to 90 miles a week, plus hike, run and kayak. The few times I have stop taking it and gradually cut down to zero DHEA, I feel tired and cranky. I will continue to take my 5 mg daily for the rest of my life! Maybe t ... Show Full Comment
