I thought I'd start a thread about this just to sort of put it on the radar and see if anyone cares to try it for a few weeks. Between this and low-dose D3, I get spectacular results. These two supplements, along with trigger avoidance, have enabled me to live a normal life. I take 25mg of DHEA twice/day, as it apparently has a very short half-life.
There are concerns about DHEA byproducts (testosterone and estrogen) causing their own problems and possibly helping existing tumors to grow, so if you're concerned about that or if you're under 40, I wouldn't go higher than 25mg, or even better, use the 7-keto form of DHEA instead. I have not used 7-keto so I can't vouch for it having the same effect on my rosacea.
I've done a ton of reading on DHEA, and the opinions vary between "wonder drug" and "snake oil". I've concluded that the truth is somewhere in the middle. I know that when I started dosing again after a month off of it, the effect on fatigue was profound. That night I should have been exhausted, but felt terrific. Don't take this stuff at bedtime.
This is the thread that originally made me try it:
I've never experienced the anxiety he did.
