what is arimidex used for bodybuilding

Arimidex is a trade name coined by the pharmaceutical company the drug called Anastrozole. Majority of bodybuilders prefer taking this drug as it can inhibit the estrogen synthesis (it’s used in the so-called PCT, post cycle therapy). When bodybuilders use “anabolic androgenic steroids” some specific compounds aromatize to estrogen. If the level of estrogen is not restricted by use of Aromatase inhibitor, it may result in high-estrogen side effect and the most common of this symptom is the development of ‘gyno’ or ‘man breasts’.

 Another lesser known side effect happens due to water retention, giving a bloated look and it can damage a good physique. Internally, if you carry excess water weight around it will strain the lipid of the body across the board. A person may also expect an increase in his blood pressure reading, loss of energy and heart strain. Moreover high estrogen level in man can affect libido adversely.

 If you are very aggressive and determined to reduce estrogen level, on the other hand, you may use compounds which is chemically harsher than Anastrozole or Arimidex, and it may cause to drop your estrogen level too low. A man can suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED), depression, loss of energy, and low libido as a result of this.

 Anastrozole is a very effective drug to combat estrogen-related concerns as it is an aromatase inhibitor blocking aromatase enzyme and prevents estrogen production to a great extent.

Advantage Of Arimidex

 The main benefit in intake and use of Arimidex as compared to a SERM, such as tamoxifen or Nolvadex, is the fact that Arimidex can block aromatase enzyme level; thereby preventing the estrogen production at first place. When you compare you see that Tamoxifen hinders the estrogen receptors to receive estrogen hormone, instead of inhibiting production at source. So you still have Estrogen hormone floating in your body when SERM is used.

 The half-life for anastrozole is about forty-six hours, and it has a tendency to build up in the system when used every day.

Application of anastrozole

 Anastrozole is usually taken orally without or with food, generally one time a day, or the way your doctor has prescribed. This medication must be taken daily to get the most amount of benefit from it and preferably it should be taken at the same time each day for maximum results.

 Generally, a leaflet of extra patient information is found with Anastrozole. You can talk to the pharmacist in case you have a query about this.

 You must continue taking anastrozole even when you feel well without missing any doses. If you have missed the dose of this medication, it should be taken at the soonest. And in case you have reached the time for next dose, you must skip the missed one and continue with your normal dosing routine, avoid taking two doses at the same time.

 The dose should not be increased or the frequency of taking this medication must not be enhanced without doctor’s advice. The main reason being this will not improve your condition any quicker and alongside it will increase the risk of some serious side effects. This drug gets absorbed through the skin, so it is advisable that pregnant women or those who may get pregnant do not break or handle tablets of this medicine.

 It is known that recommended dosage for Arimidex is usually one tablet of 1 mg daily or as instructed by a medical practitioner. The doses must not be modified at your own will, as some patients do and a strict management and regulation of qualified medical practitioner must be followed. It is very important to note that Arimidex must not be blended with some other therapies for breast cancer like Tamoxifen.

 It is worthy of mention that Arimidex overdose may lead to certain side effects like depression, hypertension, insomnia, nausea, arthritis, and headache. Arimidex must be stored at a very controlled room temperature around 25C or 77F and excursions with a permissible limit of 15to 30C or 59 to 86F. Arimidex may be said as some wonder drug but must be used with proper medical advice and used for legal purposes like treating breast cancer.

Conditions Treated By Anastrozole

 Anastrozole oral mainly treat certain particular breast cancer condition like “Hormone Receptor Positive Breast Cancer” and “metastatic breast carcinoma”. It is also used to cure or prevent breast cancer in case of high-risk woman and cancer condition for the ovary.
