    Pregnenolone makes me suicidal

    I ordered stresnon from idealabs because I constantly feel stressed. After I take a drop, I feel helpless, hopeless, cry uncontrollably and feel suicidal. This is the same thing that happened when I tried levothyoxine, and then NDT. I am going to try tyromix and hope I don't get the same...

    After just a week of taking 5mg of Pregnenolone for the first time I had a severe onslaught of positional vertigo, the type that makes my surroundings spin like a wheel. I did have vertigo couple of years ago and I applied Dr. Carol Foster's positional vertigo maneuver and it stopped. So I...

    Is pregnenolone safe for adolescents?

    I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I can't find an answer. Pregnenolone is the only thing that allows me to be semi-functional, without it I am just a constant crying mess. I take 50mg a day, divided into two 25mg doses. Is this safe, and will it not lead to long-term damage in a 19...

    Anti-Psychotic Endocrine Disturbance Counters? + Some Back Story

    TLDR; Olanzapine (Zyprexa) is meant to majorly disturb the endocrine system, increase prolactin, lower testosterone etc. Is there a way to mitigate this? HCG? Pregnenolone? Not using the medication is not a possibility for this stage - at least until I stabilize. The dosage will be low - 2.5mg...

    Can I break open a Niacinamide 500mg capsule and use about 100mg in water? Same question for Pregnenolone 10mg and use 5mg in water?

    Before you start judging, don't bother, I know that I am and have been a complete idiot. I've always been somewhat of a perfectionist and somewhere around 2016 started believing in a drug could make me just slightly better without any side effects. Oh boy was I wrong. I started off with 50mg...

    Pregnenolone (P5) May Be Ergogenic And Helps Recovery From Exercise

    Take this study with a grain of salt simply because the only link to it is from a scientific conference, which means the study is not yet published in peer-reviewed journals. Yet, the results it reports are quite interesting. Namely, a single 100mg pregnenolone (P5) dose accelerated recovery...

    My bad if this has been spoken of here specifically since a quick glance of some terms did not give an immediate impression that it was. Basically, can something like DHEA and/or pregnenolone lessen/dampen the possible stress response from caffeine use? I read a lot here and on Ray's...
