Best Way to Take DHEA?

My dr put me on 50 mg dhea daily , was wondering if it’s best too take all 50 mg in the morning or split dose up morning and night

Doc at Defy has me on 25 MG and told me to take it at night because it is more effective.

I doubt it matters a whole lot, but most doctors recommend taking it in the morning. The adrenals produce higher amounts early in the day, so it is thought it is best taking it in the morning when DHEA production would be higher naturally.

Appreciate it

Dhea is like a cup of coffee to me. Everyone is different. Try morning and night which ever feels best is what you should do. It’s not a magic pill don’t expect much. I found with proper diet and exersize my blood test DHEA fell perfectly in range sans pill.
