Close up of a pill in a person's palm

"You hit the bulls eye dead center when you advised "Do not buy dosages more than 10 mg per pill." I did as you advised and bought the 10 mg... then I stupidly thought I'd increase the benefits I was experiencing by doubling the dosage to 20 mg. BIG mistake. My appetite vanished. Then I could only sleep 3 hours per night and started have serious depersonalization episodes. I ceased taking DHEA and not going to resume your advised dosage until I fully return to normal."

Many companies sell pills that are 25 mg, 50 mg, or even 100 mg. These can be dangerous. Recently I found out through a posting on Facebook that an acquaintance of mine, whom I had not seen for several years, has an aggressive form of prostate cancer. He is 65 years old. I remember chatting with him years ago and he had asked me about DHEA. At the time he mentioned to me that he was taking 25 mg a day for a long time. I am not sure if the excessive use of this hormone had anything to do with the aggressive nature of the prostate cancer he is dealing with, but it is a possibility.
