Thank you for the information.
Average dosing for DHEA range from 25 to 200 mg so 50 mg is not a bad at all. The dose can be adjusted as per your need and response. DHEA has been used in wide variety of clinical conditions such as adrenal insufficiency, depression, post menopausal disorder, and others, you can view the complete list from this link: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/dhea/NS_patient-dhea/DSECTION=evidence Its use in post menopausal disorder is not conclusive and more research is required to make a firm conclusion.
Please also read the recent research in thats topic: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20089375 As per their findings DHEA was not considered beneficial. Thus, at this time we have some evidence to support its use in post menopausal disorder, but it is not conclusive. Moreover, longterm safety of DHEA is not known.
Please let me know if you have any other question.
I appreciate you response. I went to the two websites and they were short and a little informative. I was hoping you had a bit more information as either some experience with patients using DHEA or suggestions for what else I could do if DHEA wasn't something you thought I should try. I really am not sure where you stand on if I should take it or not. You basically only provided the readings. Thank you for those though. They were helpful.
