Some users experience dramatic mood swings. Anxiety, irritability, aggressiveness, and impulsiveness may occur. (Colgan, 1996)

Most nutritional supplements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Because androstenedione have been categorized as nutritional supplements, they have also not been closely evaluated. Although the manufacturer of a nutritional supplement must provide sufficient information (in FDA-specified format) about the composition of the product, manufacturers and distributors do not need to register with FDA or get FDA approval. Some investigations of supplements have shown that the actual ingredients are not in the amount they claim to be. (Schnirring, 1998)

In conclusion therefore, it would seem that the risks far outweigh the benefits that one would get from androstenedione.
