DHEA Supplementation Side Effect: Short Temper

I thought you might be able to help CT.

I’ve always come back low on DHEA blood test, but every time I tried supplementing with it I became very short tempered and nasty. This is exactly the opposite of my normal personality which is very laid back, introverted and non confrontational.
Any idea why this happens? Not sure there’s any correlation but I always come out on the low end of normal for total T and out of range low on free T. Thanks
