    Arimidex vs Nolvadex

    Here Goes:

    I am on TRT at 200mg/week. The clinic gave me a script for Anastrozole to take .5mg 24-48 hours post injection. My challenge is that once the new year rolls around I will not be able to afford the self pay option of 300/month because at that time my insurance deductible will be back at zero. Therefore, I have been researching good sources to buy some Test and I feel like I may have found one.

    My question is which AI or SERM to purchase. Nolvadex is a little cheaper than Arimidex but that seems to be the only real difference. Clomid doesn't seem to be reliable enough to use during TRT and seems to be primarily used in PCT. Aromasin seems to be way to powerful a blocker/inhibitor/suppressant for me to use and may kill my estrogen/estradiol levels completely which is no bueno.

    So I guess it is Arimidex vs Nolvadex.


    I appreciate any and all feedback.

    You need an AI, not a SERM. You can order a bottle of anastrozole from IronMag Research for less than $40 when you apply my rep code, 45PRS15, at the checkout. One bottle will last you 45 weeks if you're taking 1mg/week of it.

    I assume this compares to the pill form mg for mg??

    Initial E value was 34.4 and went up to 54.7 at 6 weeks blood work. Just an FYI

    Anastrozole, exemestane, and letro are aromatase inhibitors, which are what you need. Nolvadex and clomid are selective estrogen receptor modulators, or serms.

    Letrozole is very harsh and strong. Anastrozole is harder on your lipids than exemestane. Adex is also not a suicide inhibitor, so you can end up with rebound when stopping. I suggest aromasin/exemestane, it's the best on your health, easier to dose without rebound or crushing your estrogen.

    Far superior in my opinion

    For TRT adex is the better choice I think. Itís much easier to control your E2 levels, you only need to dose it twice weekly whereas youíd need to take aromasin twice daily. I also canít see 1mg/week of adex being detrimental to ones health, if it were why would almost every doctor who puts their patient on TRT get them to use it over something like aromasin? My current TRT protocol is 200mg/week Test C and 2mg/week adex, both split into two, and my lipids profile were always great. Obviously thereís different factors like age, diet, training, etc. but the point remains that adex is the way to go.

    Aromasin twice daily?

    Wtf are you talking about.

    I have to whole heartedly disagree.

    Even a 1mg dose of adex will have an impact on lipid profile whereas Aromasin will have none.

    I found it much easier to control e2 on Aromasin as well. Adex will crush your estrogen rather easy whereas Aromasin is much more forgiving in that realm especially at a trt dose of test.

    Aromasin was thought to be stronger then adex when it first came about but that's not the case at all and the reason for the above paragraph m

    Also, it's not prescribed as often for a few reasons but, they aren't effectiveness. Cost is one but familiarity is the main reason. This is why most insurance companies don't cover Aromasin as well.

    Estrogen rebound only happens if you stop taking your AI in the middle of a cycle. There is no credible research to support estrogen rebound pertaining to AI's. It is a meritless theory that gets thrown around on these forums by guys who have never looked it up

    Wrong....some guys get high estrogen gyno on trt. I personally got gyno before I started trt with a natural test level of 150ng.

    So you're implying that there's credible research to say that it doesn't happen? Or is it just another meritless theory?

    I can personally attest to stopping adex a couple weeks after going down to a cruise dose and having my e2 skyrocket, much worse than doing the same with aromasin. There's no difference between estrogen rebound mid blast or after, it's the same thing. Saying one exists but the other doesn't is a bit of a logical fallacy considering there's no difference between the two.

    In his particular case he's getting high e2 from a TRT dose of test.
