Information about the drug:
Anti-estrogen drugs play an important role in the rehabilitation after a long course of androgenic anabolic steroids. Anti-estrogens are such substances that can reduce the level of female sex hormones (estrogens) in the blood, increase the concentration of testosterone in the organism and maintain such necessary balance in the future.
The aromatase enzyme is responsible for the conversion of excess testosterone to estrogens in the human body. Special medicines called aromatase inhibitors reduce the amount of this enzyme in the organism, and thus prevent the occurrence of excess estrogen.
One of the most powerful and effective drug is Armidex, which is also known as Anastrozole. This drug is deservedly considered one of the most effective anti-estrogens available on the world market.
These drugs are ideal for combating side effects caused by prolonged use of steroids. It is not a secret that many bodybuilders suffer from gynecomastia – an increase in the mammary gland in men. Anti-estrogen drugs quickly and easily cope with this problem. But Arimidex can also cope with other unpleasant manifestations from the use of steroid drugs.
Initially, this drug was developed for medical use, and specifically for the treatment of breast cancer in women, since aromatase enzyme inhibitor drugs slow down tumor growth and the development of the disease. Bodybuilders decided to use this outstanding property of Anastrozole for their own purposes – and successfully began to apply this drug to get rid of excess fluid in the body and enlarged mammary glands quickly and effectively.
Anastrozole has a rather pronounced effect. For example, only 1 ml of the drug is enough to reduce the concentration of estrogen in the blood by 80%. Arimidex acts almost instantly – and this is one of the main advantages of this drug. The peak of the active action of the medication occurs within 2 hours after the applying, so aromatization can be suppressed as soon as possible.
Nice to know that Arimidex can be used not only during the rehabilitation period after an AAS course, but it also can be applied on a steroid course – after all, this drug not only lowers the concentration of estrogen in the body, but also maintains its optimal amount in the blood, reducing the reappearing of side effects. Keep in mind that Anastrozole is a really powerful drug that can save you from the side effect of strong steroid drugs in the case of proper use.
And that is not the only positive property of Anastrozole! For example, this drug is not only reduces aromatization, concentration of estrogen and increases the amount of anabolic hormones, but it is also improves the quality of muscle mass – and this is exactly what athletes need before the competition.
The characteristics of Arimidex pleasantly surprise and explain its popularity among professional athletes, but unfortunately, this anti-estrogen drug is not made for beginners at all.
Also, despite the fact that estrogens in moderation are useful even for the male organism, this drug is strictly contraindicated for women. The fact is that applying Anastrozole disrupts the hormonal background of the female body and lead to unpredictable consequences for women’s health. However, some women begin to take this anti-estrogenic drug in the postmenopausal period, but even under such conditions it is very difficult to assess the effect of the drug on the female athlete’s body.
But professional male athletes should start taking Arimidex immediately after completing the course of androgenic anabolic steroids.
The most common reason for using this drug is the appearance of obvious signs of an increased concentration of estrogen in the blood, such as gynecomastia. Experienced athletes choose to take 1 mg of Arimidex once a day. The drug should be taken until the unwanted symptoms completely disappear. After the disappearance of estrogenic manifestations, it is necessary to continue taking 0.5 mg of Arimidex daily for prevention.
The popular way to use Arimidex in the athlete’s community is to begin before the start of AAS course. In such cases, to avoid undesirable estrogenic manifestations in the future, athletes use 0.5 mg of the drug once every two days.
The duration of the course of Arimidex should not exceed 2 weeks. This time will be enough to understand how the drug acts on your body, but you will not have time to face side effects.
It is better to take these pills on an empty stomach and drink plenty of water. This will help to accelerate the absorption of the active component in the blood and increase the speed of the drug’s action.
Most experienced athletes consider Anastrozole to be extremely effective in controlling the undesired effects of estrogen. This drug is especially useful for sportsmen after a long course of Androgenic Anabolic Steroids.
However, Arimidex is a medicine, therefore, before the begin of this drug’s applying, keep in mind that the side effects of its using can appear in completely different ways depending on the susceptibility of the organism of a person. Also, the occurrence of side effects depends on whether the athlete used steroids or not. In fact, it is impossible to predict the symptoms athlete will have after using Anastrozole after the course of AAS, but it is approximately known what manifestations should be expected from using arimidex without steroids:
- Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea;
- Increased skin sensitivity, decreased libido, pain in the joints, losing of muscle mass, decreased bone strength, resulting in an increased risk of fractures;
- Bad sleep, constant feeling of tiredness, depressed mood, headache;
- Acne or allergic reaction;
The price of Anastozolol can easily be explained by its excellent quality, rapid onset of effect and a clear result.
Please also note that female athletes are strictly contraindicated in taking this anti-estrogen drug. The using of Anastrozole negatively affects the hormonal background of organism, which leads to unpredictable consequences for women’s health. Sadly, but some female athletes begin to take this anti-estrogen drug after the menopause, but even in this case it is difficult to assess the effect of Anastrozole on women’s body.
