    Feeling a bit depressed

    Anyone here ever experience minor depression while on an AI?

    I've been using Adex (pharm grade) at 0.5mgs EOD for about 4 weeks now and I swear I'm beginning to feel a bit depressed. Feeling a bit on the sad side. I don't smile as often as usual. Feel like crying for past events that happened in my life, events that I let go a long time ago.

    Is it possible to happen on Adex at this dose?

    Hell fucking yes. I experience lethargy and depression almost every day following my .5mg dose of adex. Just be mindful that it isn't real. The depression you feel is chemical in nature, not psychological. I dropped my dose from .5 every other day to .5 every 3rd day because of the depression side effect. The day after I take adex, I pretty much have to be on alert that I might want to jump in front of a speeding car, but to just power though it, and things will return to normal.

    I have plans to switch to nolva. I really don;t like adex.

    Well, I won't EVER get gyno and that's because I had gyno surgery done a couple of years ago. My E2 levels can go sky high now and I won't even get a tiny lump anymore. :-)

    I'm only taking Adex to reduce estrogen levels. But yeah, been noticing that I'm feeling a bit on the down side. I'm usually a very confident guy, never looking back at the past and always moving forward. But the last few days I've been on the sad side. Thinking about my last girl over and over again. Mind you this is a girl that I broke up with because she was a bi-polar, multiple personality, borderline disorder personality bitch that drove me NUTS!!!! But the fact that she isn't around anymore kind of makes me sad. Weird I'm feeling like this because I've actually been feeling quite fine since I broke up with her a month ago.

    So at 0.5mgs E3D, or pretty much 1mg per week, you feel fine? Or you still feel a little depressed?

    Dude guys need estrogen too. Helps with gains, mood, joints....etc. I take adex .3mg every 3 or 4 days. You are taking too much. I took 20mg of nolvadex a day for 2 days and my bones were fucking killing me all over. I was weak as fuck too. Fuck that.

    Damn! E2 is high as usual, bro. I can't really seem to take any AI's without feeling "something" negative.

    Aromasin, I take this stuff and I become weak, dull, flat, boring. I find it so difficult to get out of bed. Everything that was once fun or at least a bit interesting is now boring as hell!

    Letrozole, I feel fine on this stuff believe it or not. Never get the killer joints. It can bring my E2 levels down to 50, 40 or 30 (where the others barely budge). But this stuff kills my libido.

    Adex, similar to aromasin but at a much lower level. But still! Who the hell wants to feel semi-depressed? Right? LOL

    Adex or Aromasin still leaves my E2 levels past 70.

    Those little pills are hard enough to get in half. I can't imagine cutting them into forths.

    Agreed! Aromasin is the king of the road. Arimidex not only causes problems described above, it is also known to wage war on HDL.

    I've never heard of Adex causing "depression". If anything, I feel it MORE when I'm on aromasin, even at 12.5mgs EOD

    It really has nothing to do with E levels. I have gotten my E2 levels down to only 60 and still felt like total ass on aromasin or even adex.

    It just seems like me being ON the AI itself will make me feel flat and dull.

    Interesting.. I never thought adex would cause depression.. How does it cause depression? Just from your estrogen being low? That doesn't make sense to me.
