Arimidex (anastrozole) is the aromatase inhibitor of choice. The drug is appropriately used when using substantial amounts of aromatizing steroids, or when one is prone to gynecomastia and using moderate amounts of such steroids. It works by decreasing estrogen levels in the body.
As an aromatase inhibitor, Arimidex''s mechanism of action - blocking conversion of aromatizable steroids to estrogen - is in contrast to the mechanism of action of anti-estrogens such as clomiphene or tamoxifen, which block estrogen receptors in some tissues, and activate estrogen receptors in others. With moderate doses of testosterone 0.5 up to 1 mg/day is usually sufficient. If a dose is skipped, take as soon as possible, or if it's close to the next dose, skip and take the next dose. Do not double the dose.
Using Arimidex, additionally the quality of the muscle should be greater, the athlete appearing harder and much more defined without holding excess water. A daily dose of one tablet (1 mg) can produce estrogen suppression greater than 80-85%.
Effective dose(men): 0.5-1mg/day
Effective dose(women): not recommended to be used
Recommended cycle: 20 to 35 days (depending on the steroid cycle used)
|Recommended usage||antiestrogen, post cycle therapy (PCT)|
