DHEA for or against
NOHARD posted:
Has anybody used DHEA and what was the result, I'm going to start when it arrives here in Greece for an ED problem and low libido, this and some other things like fatigue, lack of concentration, muscle bulk loss, and went through some very bad sweaty nights, it was like having a very bad fever, but didn't have anything wrong with me, it was after this going on for 3 weeks that the ED and low libido kicked in.
So what has been your experience with DHEA for or against?
Eugenio311 responded:
I've been taking DHEA (25mg) daily for almost 3 months after looking for something to boost energy and libido (no ED symptoms). So far I can only say that I have a slight increase in energy for doing my gym workouts, and more frequent morning erections so I think it may be boosting testosterone a little. I have had some weight gain while taking it (2 or 3 kilos), which I think is mostly muscle from more frequent intense workouts.
I haven't noticed any adverse effects thus far. I don't have prostate problems but I understand that would be a contraindication to taking DHEA.
My testosterone level was normal when checked shortly before I started taking DHEA, but I decided to give it a try just to see what would happen.

I cannot say yet if I'm "for" or "against" but at this point am leaning "for." I plan to continue for at least another 3 months.

By the way, I'm 58 years old.
