Anastrozole Men

Anastrozole Men

Arimidex For Men

Developed for treatment of breast cancer in postmenopausal women, Arimidex blocks aromatase enzymes from converting male hormones, i.e., testosterone into estrogens.

Both estrogen and testosterone exist in males and females. Females produce estrogen in the ovaries; males produce testosterone in the testicles. Additionally, small amounts of sex hormones are produced in the adrenal glands meaning that women produce some testosterone, and men produce some estrogen. These hormones also control sexual characteristics in adult males and females. An overabundance of the male hormone testosterone in a female can cause masculine characteristics such as a deep voice, facial hair or increased muscle mass. Men with too much estrogen can develop breasts (gynecomastia) or other unwanted female characteristics.

Aromatase enzymes which exist in the liver, muscles and fat cells convert testosterone into estrogen. Since Arimidex is all about estrogen, it may seem unlikely that there are Arimidex uses in men.

Anastrozole side effects include:

  • Bone and joint pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Hot flashes
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea

Estradiol in Men

Most men think of estrogen as exclusively a female hormone, but men also produce it. In fact, testosterone is the precursor of estradiol, an estrogen and the primary female sex hormone. Testosterone is converted into estradiol via the aromatase enzyme.

Because testosterone can be converted into estradiol, taking testosterone via testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can potentially elevate estrogen levels. Fortunately, most men on standard TRT dosages do not experience high estradiol levels. Nevertheless, genetically predisposed men may experience symptoms associated with high levels, which may lead to certain unwanted side effects.

Taking Anastrozole:

Anastrozole is a tablet, usually taken once a day at the same time. It may be taken with or without food.

Dosage and duration of treatment will vary depending on a number of factors, including the condition being treated, patient response to treatment, and other medications being taken. It is important to follow physician instructions carefully to get the most benefit from Anastrozole.

Anastrozole is usually taken for 2 to 5 years, though in some cases treatment may be longer.

If a dose is missed, it may be taken when remembered or skipped entirely if it is near time for the next dose. Double doses should be avoided.
