I'm very pleased with how i feel, using the pregnenolone. It's been a two or three weeks since i started taking a 10 mg sublingual every day and i have that "balanced" feeling which, at my age, is cause for rejoicing. I've also settled into taking a gram of carnitine every morning, which together with the P does a much better job of providing steady (if not abundant) energy than tyrosine, which tends to make me uncomfortably wired.
The thing i didn't like about the progesterone creme i used to use was that i definitely put FAT on the portions of my anatomy where it was applied. And those places where it is recommended that one apply the creme? -- EXACTLY where i don't need more fat! :-) I ended up preferring to rub it into my butt, to balance my proportions out a bit. When i first learned about maca, i thought maybe that would be good for me, but hearing that it can be detrimental to thyroid function, i haven't played with it much yet.
I didn't get an immediate boost from the pregnenolone -- it took at least a week for me to feel that something good was happening. Of course, being the cautious self-experimenter that i am, i wasn't about to start off with the massive dose some people use. However, being also of an age at which natural pregnenolone production is significantly reduced, i felt confident about doubling the amount suggested by Dr. Peat -- 10 mg is the smallest concentration offered through Amazon.
I didn't get the boundless energy of youth, but i do feel good about adding this supplement to my regimen -- the more so because it IS the dissolve-in-the-mouth sort (i do get tired of swallowing pills). Perhaps when the time comes to buy another bottle i'll go for the 25 mg size. If i don't like the way i feel with the higher dosage, i'll just bite the little suckers in half.
