No data: Since there have been no studies that have attempted to find an answer to your specific question(s), it is impossible to say one way or the other. However, based on studies of omega-3 fatty acids attempted in treatment of major depression and bipolar disorder, i would speculate that 25 mg of dhea is unlikely to have any meaningful impact on levels of any neurotransitter.

Am confused, as how do you know that you have low levels of all these neurochemicals? Secondly, "dhea" will have NO effect on the levels within the central nervous system, and I am not clear where this information came from prompting your question. Since there are areas of gaps, suggest you expand upon your questions via a formal virtual consult here at Healthtap to discuss in detail.
