DHEA can be moderately helpful in some for anxiety, energy, and libido. But most, even "normal" people, find DHEA's effects to induce irritability. And yes, DHEA can cause mania, although I believe many of the reports have been a sense of dysphoria, not euphoria, making their depression worse.

If you try it, start low (2-5mg). Many store brands start at 10-25 mg, which are way too high for someone not in their twighlight years. If you notice the onset of anxiety, irritability, increased depression, or anger, it's a good bet that you are not a great candidate for DHEA supplementation.
