The use of anastrozole during the course of steroids and post-cycle therapy
- Hits: 528
A popular drug that contains anastrozole is Armidex 1 mg tablets. Focusing on it, let's understand the features of the use of this drug for bodybuilders. Only the correct reception is safe for health and effective.
Anastrozole is a modern and popular aromatase inhibitor. Athletes use it to:
- Reduce the production of estrogen and balancing the hormonal background;
- Prevent gyno;
- Increase the concentration of anabolic hormones in the blood;
- Remove excess fluid from tissues and build more expressive muscle relief as a result;
- Prevent high blood pressure.
Important: the use of a potent aromatase inhibitor is not recommended for beginners; it should be used by athletes who already have experience with anabolic and androgenic steroids. In practice, the drug is used during and after a course of anabolic steroids.
This drug is recommended for the prevention of gynecomastia and other symptoms of aromatization. The dose is 0.5 mg (half a tablet) every two days. In case of obvious estrogenic side reactions from the use of anabolic and androgenic agents, Anastrozole 1 mg should be taken daily (the whole tablet). The dosage is maintained in this case until the symptoms persist. Next, you should gradually move to the preventive dosage described above.
The period of use of anastrozole is up to 2 weeks. Usually this is enough to manifest the necessary effects without the occurrence of side effects. If the drug is taken on post-cycle therapy, then you should focus on therapeutic dosages. There are no restrictions on the order of taking the pills. Admission is allowed at any time of the day without being tied to the process of eating. Some experts still identify the strategy of taking pills on an empty stomach while awake. They motivate this by the fact that the active component (anastrozole) is absorbed faster and acts more efficiently. In theory, this makes sense. However, there is no clear answer as to how much better the pill is absorbed compared to any other conditions of admission.
The use of anastrozole by many athletes these days is rather strange and unproductive. They use it only when there are clear signs of aromatization of steroids in the body. This includes redness, swelling, and itching in the nipple area. However, this approach is incorrect, since it is important to prevent the processes in the body that lead to such symptoms.
It is best to check the level of estradiol ten days after the start of the course of steroids, which are characterized by a short half-life (methandrostenolone, testosterone propionate). Similar analyzes are required after 3-4 weeks of injections of esters with prolonged action (cypionate, enanthate, sustanon).
When this condition is met, then you can take anastrozole 0.5 mg 1 time in 2 days (prophylactic dose). After 10 days of admission, an additional check should be made for the level of estradiol, and the dose of the drug is calculated from the results obtained.
If the athlete does not want to be tested, then an alternative solution to this problem would be a low to medium dosage test, which should be adjusted according to the sensations that arise. In the case when, after starting the intake of an aromatase inhibitor, the athlete is faced with erectile function, decreased sexual activity, decreased libido, depression, then the dosage should be reduced.
Adhere to the recommendations above, and the quality of the use of anastrozole during the course of steroids and PCT will be correct.
