Information about the drug
Femara (Letrozole) are tablets for oral using. The drug was made to prevent the development of the breast cancer. The principle of action is in the inhibiting of the enzyme aromatase.
The suppressing of the functioning of aromatase is the most effective way to combat with estrogen in the organism. The necessity to fight with estrogens appears for athletes who use androgenic anabolic steroids. As a rule, this group of drugs contains testosterone (the male sex hormone).
Testosterone is processed into other compounds in the organism, interacting with various enzymes natural testosterone is able to turn into the more powerful compound, dihydrotestosterone, and hormones which are more characteristic for the female body (estrogens).
The interaction with the enzyme aromatase leads to the emergence of an excessive amount of female sex hormones in the male body. An excess of estrogens can lead to the so-called feminization of the male body — this is manifested by the number of symptoms that make the male body look like the female: breast growth (gynecomastia); the deposition of fats on the hips and stomach (by female type); accumulation of large amounts of water in the body; changes in mood.
Anti-estrogen drugs should be used to control the amount of female hormones and to prevent these symptoms. Depending on the power of the course of androgenic anabolic steroids, there are two types of drugs made to fight estrogen. They have different strength and principle of action. The weaker type of drugs is anti-estrogens, as a rule, these drugs were made for light and non-measured steroids courses (with a moderate amount of natural testosterone), their principle of action is to interact with estrogen receptors (they occupy receptors, excluding the interaction of real estrogens with them).
Another type of inhibitors of aromatase prevents the process of aromatization, effectively controlling the level of estrogens. Such medicines are more suitable for more powerful courses of steroids and allow the applying of higher doses of testosterone without fear of the development of side effects associated with estrogenic activity.
The drug can be used as on the course of applying AAS, as during the post course therapy.
Common dose in the period of using steroid drugs is 0.5 mg per day or in day. To find out the most optimal dose necessary to make regular estrogen tests.
This schedule is used to apply Mar-Letrozole during the post course therapy: the first 10 days used really big dose 2.5 mg (1 tablet), but then used only 0.5 mg per day during the next 2-3 weeks.
Necessary to notice that individual way to choose the correct dosage is very important, as minimal presence of female hormones in male’s body is a necessity. Estrogens are responsible for the many chemical processes and have influence on the user’s mood and sexual activity.
