How much total and also, how are you taking it (how are you dividing the doses, how much at what time)?

Your doses should not be divided like that IMHO... the normal body gets the bulk in the morning and has less in the afternoon. I take 20 and I take 15 in the morning and 5 in the afternoon, at 2pm.

The 15 will *wake* you and the 5 will give you the slow slide like the normal body... you can split the 5 into 2 doses if you are really tired.

Are you also taking florinef (not everyone needs it) salt if you need it and DHEA if you need it - that helps with energy...

I am taking DHEA, and that is the perscription that my holistic doctor gave me, in terms of dosing.  He said it could take up to two weeks to know if it's helping. so far nothing. today is day number 6.  do you think that;'s a sign that it's not helping me?
