direct improvement - fatigue, 51 yr old female
Posted by Reviewer2460115 on Nov 14, 2011
After a dr's suggestion, I took 50mg DHEA per day and had lots of issues with sleep and feeling like I was having a heart attack after 4 days-- 50 mg oral dose was just too much for me. I cut back to 25 mg per day and felt great for a year, but I could always tell that I was getting a huge amount of effect after about 20 minutes even when splitting the oral dose over the day. i also began having a few issues with uterine cysts (adenomyosis). Thus, I went off for about 9 months, and the fatigue just was so debilitating that I once again began the DHEA. Now I use about half of the 15mg topical dose (about half of the squirt) in the morning and half in the afternoon. I have my energy back and it appears that the effect is less noticeable and therefore will hopefully not increase the uterine cysts. I am convinced that my body needs the DHEA to function. (I'm 51, had ovaries removed 3 years ago and have been feeling fatigue problems for about 6 years, with an exponential increase after the surgery.) I would say that DHEA in general has made a HUGE impact on my life, positive impact - but I think a low dose is better so that it doesn't increase estrogen as much. I would love to see a low dose DHEA patch so that it would be a sustained constant release.
Excellent product..."safe" dose

I'm a breast cancer survivor and treatments threw me into early menopause basically shutting me down almost completely with regard to hormone production...ovaries, adrenals, thyroid all shot. I see a specialist in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy on a monthly basis and while the prescribed concoctions for estriol/estradiol (sublingual) and progesterone from the compounding pharmacy work well, I could not tolerate the oral DHEA for whatever reason. I developed horrible heart palpatations among other things so I was forced to discontinue use in spite of very low levels of DHEA (due to adrenal fatigue/exhaustion). A year or so later with my levels still low, I tried and found I could tolerate an oral 5 mg. dose I found on IHerb. However, after my last blood test showed lower than ever DHEA levels (apparently I wasn't absorbing this at all), I determined I had to try an alternative delivery method. I was thrilled to find Life Flo made a low dose DHEA cream as I'd tried their progesterone cream before seeking treatment from my specialist and it did seem to work pretty well. Within 2 weeks of starting on this cream, I noticed increased energy and clearer thinking. While everyone's different, this seems to be working for me and is one of the only low dose over the counter DHEA products I have come across. Will update review after my next blood test in a few months.

This amazing cream improved my symptoms within a day or two, and I can really feel it if I forget a dose! This is what convinces me that what I am experiencing is not simply a placebo effect. I was originally buying this from a compounding pharmacy when it was 1st prescribed by my MD; then I found it on iHerb.com for less than half the cost. Now I buy all my hormonal supplements here and save lots of $ without any change in effectiveness. Thanks iHerb!

I like that it is in cream form and bypasses the liver for absorbsan.
Cheaper than compounded RX

I tried this instead of my costly compounded DHEA prescription and it works just as well at a fraction of the cost

Great way to get my DHEA, along with Estro and Progesterone creams I got on i herb, it does't make me jittery like the oral Dhea does.
Easy to use

Easy way to get your DHEA. The ginseng may be too much stimulation for me but it all seems to soak in and work immediately.
