    My CFIDS doctor suggested I take 25mg DHEA per day, starting with 7.5mg. As Pregnenolone makes me depressed, I bought 7ketoDHEA (which is not to increase testosterone and estrogen production). After two days I found myself crying uncontrollably, finding the world a place not worth living in, etc. etc.

    Question: has anyone else here had that sort of reaction? If yes, does it go away if one keeps taking the stuff?

    Thanks,
    Susanne
