View Full Version : On Arimidex .5mg ED...Still feeling crappy....

02-17-2013, 06:53 PM
Here is the short of what is going on. My last labs showed that my E2 levels doubled from my baseline. E2 went from 20 to 46..So dr said I should try arimidex 1mg per day but I thought that was to much so have been doing .5mg ED. Here are some of my last Lab results..

1. All cholestrol good
2. Red Blood cell good
3. Sex Hormone Binding Globulin 29
4. DHEA, LC/MS/MS 241
5. Dihydrotestosterone LC/MS/MS 82?
6.Estradiol 46?
7.PSA 1.0
8. Testosterone Free and Total 615
9. Free Testosterone 145

Whyam I still feeling like shit?? I have been on the arimides for about 5 days my libido is down and my energy...And noticed some shrinkage in the little boys???
Need some advice???? I felt great the first 6-8 weeks now not so much....Maybe some clomid?? I heard that will bring back the package and your testes do create certain hormones....

Youre using to much adex. You should cut it back to .5 twice a week and adjust it from there. Whats your test dosage?
Taking hcg?

150mg/ml once a week..No hcg

I think you could start at .5mgs twice a week and get labs done to dial it in. I would add in hcg at 250ius 2x a week also. You basically crushed your e2 levels with that dosage of adex everyday. Come off of it till you start to feel better than add it back in.

Thank you,
Remeber I have only been on the adex for about 4 days...So maybe I should just start doing twice a week??? Please advice....

Some people are very sensitive to adex. Try 2x a week. Let your e2 come back up before you do.

post your protocol test dose hcg dose adex dose and number of times per week. I agree that you prob crashed your e2 adex is strong and when you crash you levels it can take ten days to get e2 back up. when I crased my e2 level (i was at 4) i was sweating had tunnel vision felt tired all day long. this is just a general reference but figure about 1mg adex per 100mg test. So if you doing 150mg test you want around 1mg-1.5 mg adex per week. Remember everyone is different I respond to adex quite a bit so i can get away with a lot lower of a dose. Get on HCG for the shrinkage.

my basic protocol

mon 60mg test
tues 250 iu hcg .25 adex
thurs 60mg test
fri 250 iu hcg .25 adex (sometimes I don't take the adex on this day depends how I feel)
sun 250iu hcg
