    Arimidex Necessary

    I'm currently taking .5mg EOD. But I just started dieting and changed my routine. Cut down my test from 1200mg to 850mg. I was taking the Adex just in case. I've never really had the need for AI's during my cycles. Since it could lower IGF-1 levels I don't think its a good idea to take it for shits and giggles. Unless test dosages are high or there is history of gyno or other estrogen sides. I also have Aromasin but I assume its the same.

    What about people here... Do you prefer taking AI's during cycle or not?

    I use aromasin. It is good to take an AI because even though you may not have estro sides I am sure your estrogen levels are going to be higher than they should be taking an AI just keeps them in check which can help your sex drive, less bloat, and prevent gyno. The only way to know is to not take an AI then go and have your estrogen checked with a blood test otherwise I would use and AI at least once e3d.

    You really think so? Does anyone else feel it hinders gains? I just don't want to take it for fun if I'm not feeling the estrogen. Since it could lower IGF-1.

    AI's actually free up more T, making you stronger. T raises IGF-1 dose dependently.

    Nolva has been reported to lower IGF-1. AIs do as heavy stated raise test and as he said this raises IGF-1. All you have to do is get the blood work and you will see for yourself.

    Man I totally would get 100 blood works every month to monitor my levels, but I'm kind of tight on funds, I can't do trial and error and spend money on it right now. I think a lower dosage shouldn't hurt too much. I know nolva is a lot worse at lowering IGF-1. Either way I also have Letro on hand in case anything goes wrong.

    Aromasin also does not lower IGF-1 levels, which is another reason I like it better than adex.

    That's it. I am getting aromasin. The reasons the original poster wrote (hindering gains) are the main reason I am not using an AI at 600 mg test weekly.

    If you guys are right, then there is no downside.

    Exemestane (Aromasin) averages an 85% rate of estrogen suppression, so it´s clearly a very effective agent for bodybuilders and other athletes wanting to avoid estrogen related side effects such as gyno, acne, or water-retention brought on by aromatizing steroids. Specifically, Exemestane (Aromasin) does this by selectively inhibiting aromatase activity in a time-dependent and irreversible manner.

    As with most of the compounds in this class, it also causes a reasonable rise in testosterone levels, and as you may have guessed, this rise in testosterone means that Exemestane (Aromasin) can also cause androgenic sides. Exemestane (Aromasin) is very effective at both lowering estrogen (estradiol) and raising testosterone.
    This compound was developed to fight breast cancer in post-menopausal women, who need a particularly aggressive therapy, and for whose first line defenses such as SERMS (Tamoxifen) have not worked. This should be our first clue in inferring that this compound is pretty strong, or at least stronger than some of the other compounds which are used to fight breast cancer.

    A lower dose is still better than no dose. So give it a shot. If you need more just add it in,
