Question about DHEA????

I have questions for all taking DHEA.
I’m currently taking 25 mg a day. Is that enough?? Can DHEA and Clomid be taken simultaneously??

Thanks,

Personally, I take Clomid and I will not mix anything with it.

Hi. I don't think 25mg is enough. The recommendation for over 40 to have DHEA levels the same as those in their early 30s is 30 to 50 mg a day. A lot of the women here who have used DHEA have taken about 75mg per day -- as did I. I had no side effects and took it for 8 months while taking Clomid.


You could get your DHEA levels checked to be sure, and I think there is even a home test.


Good Luck.

Hi, I took DHEA with my last two cycles of Clomid.

i'm on 75mg of clomid and 50mg of DHEA. i've never had a problem, but i agree with the other ladies to get your levels checked. G/L
