Some considerations for people taking dehydroepiandrosterone include:
- Since the manufacturing of dietary supplements (such as dehydroepiandrosterone) is not closely regulated, it is important to choose a trustworthy manufacturer for your supplements. In tests, some dehydroepiandrosterone supplements contained absolutely no dehydroepiandrosterone, while others contained much more than the labeled amounts. Contamination is also a potential problem. Your pharmacist is a good resource for information about which dehydroepiandrosterone supplements are most reliable (and which manufacturers are most reputable).
- If you have any chronic health problems or take any prescription medications, it is probably a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before taking dehydroepiandrosterone.
- If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or dehydroepiandrosterone dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider.
