Anastrozole Bodybuilding

Anastrozole Bodybuilding

History

Arimidex is the trade name used by the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, for a drug called Anastrozole. Many bodybuilders like to refer to it as just 'adex' for short. Approved in the US for use in 1995, it is a non-steroidal aromatase inhibiting drug (acronym AI) and is approved for treatment of breast cancer after surgery and for metastasis in women. Since breast cancer can be heightened by the increase in estrogen, arimidex is used to inhibit the synthesis of estrogen.

Use in Bodybuilding

When a man uses anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS), certain compounds will aromatize into estrogen. The main culprits that will do this are all testosterone esters, such as: cypionate, enanthate, dianabol, deca durabolin, and less so Boldenone (EQ). If estrogen isn't inhibited by using an AI (aromatase inhibitor), then high-estrogen side effects can occur. The most well-known side effect is gynecomastia or what is known commonly as 'gyno', 'bitch tits' or 'man breasts'. A man may notice a lump forming within his breast(s) – or under the nipple area; if not treated quickly, this can require serious surgery to remove. The lesser known but very serious side effects are caused by water retention, which can give a bloated or 'full' look. Extra water weight to your body or face (commonly called “moon face for its round or full look) can ruin a nice physique by making a person look fat. Internally, carrying around extra water weight will strain the body’s lipids across the board. A person can expect a rise in blood pressure, heart strain, and loss in energy. Also, high estrogen can affect libido.

On the other hand, if you are too aggressive in inhibiting estrogen, by using compounds that are harsher than Arimidex, this can cause your estrogen to drop too low. As a result, you can expect erectile disfunction (ED), loss of energy, depression and low libido.

Arimidex vs Letrozole

Arimidex side effects are not as harsh when compared to AI like letrozole, which has a host of side effects; the most common being erectile dysfunction. Although estrogen is known as a female hormone, men still need it in their bodies. For men, estrogen balances them hormonally and helps them gain muscle and strength. That's why letrozole, a harsh AI that kills almost all estrogen, isn't always the best to achieve hormonal balance on your cycle. On the other hand, this is where arimidex shines, as it is a gentle AI that won't crush your estrogen levels, so you can be more balanced.

Serious side effects of Arimidex include:

  • Weak or broken bones
  • Cancer of the lining of the uterus (endometrium)
  • Blood clots or chest pain
  • Stroke, heart attack, or high blood pressure
  • Low red blood cell count
  • Low white blood cell count
  • Erythema multiforme (Stevens-Johnson syndrome)
  • Cataracts
