What is Arimidex Anastrozole ?

Arimidex Anastrozole is an extremely powerful anti-estrogen originally belonging to the Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) family.  It was developed in the early 1990’s, officially released in 1995 by Zenaca Pharmaceuticals under the trade name Arimidex, and is perhaps the most commonly used AI on the market.

Arimidex is a favorite anti-estrogen among many anabolic steroid users.  It became very popular because of its ability to mitigate adverse estrogenic effects, such as gynecomastia and excess water retention, as well as by combating the suppression of natural testosterone as a result of using anabolic steroids.  Many common anabolic steroids, such as testosterone, nandrolone, dianabol, etc.,  have the ability to aromatize by the interaction of testosterone hormone’s ability to interact with the aromatase enzyme.  As aromatization occurs, estrogen levels rise, leading to excess estrogen and unwanted estrogenic side effects.   Arimidex works quickly to combat these negative side effects, thus, resulting in countless anabolic steroid users relying on Arimidex for on-cycle estrogenic protection.  By including Arimidex in an anabolic steroid cycle that contains aromatizing steroids, the individual can protect against gynecomastia and water retention. This will also protect against high blood pressure. Arimidex has also been proven to be a very effective breast cancer treatment, even more so than the traditional Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate).

The functions and traits of Arimidex Anastrozole are extremely simple, yet powerful.  As an AI, Arimidex functions by blocking the aromatase enzyme, which is the enzyme responsible for the production of estrogen.  AI’s like Arimidex actively inhibit the production of estrogen and reduce the actual amount of circulating hormone. By inhibiting the aromatase process, Arimidex can lower the body’s serum estrogen levels by up to 80%.  It also has the ability to stimulate the release of Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH).  Both of these hormones are essential for natural testosterone production.

As a testosterone stimulating compound, Arimidex can be appealing for low testosterone treatment plans and for Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) for anabolic steroid users. In the case of low testosterone treatment, it’s often not enough, however, can still be beneficial in conjunction with exogenous testosterone therapy in protecting against estrogenic side effects.  As for PCT use, some will attempt it and it can have a positive effect, but it is generally not recommended.  The main purpose of a PCT plan is to stimulate natural testosterone production in order to protect lean muscle tissue, keep body fat under control and promote a better state of health. However, the overall purpose is normalization, which cannot be reached when using Arimidex post cycle due to the tremendous estrogen reduction. Although high levels of estrogen can be problematic, some is necessary to proper bodily function, especially regarding the immune system and cardiovascular health. For the anabolic steroid user, AI’s should be saved for on cycle use with SERM’s, such as Nolvadex, being used for PCT.

Some of the many benefits of Arimidex include:

  • Highly effective estrogen blocker
  • Ability to reduce/prevent gynecomastia symptoms
  • Reduces estrogenic side effects such as water retention
  • Ability to stimulate the release of Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) to help boost natural testosterone production


What is the recommended dosage?

Arimidex is a highly effective aromatase inhibitor at low doses for estrogen control during cycles that contain steroids that aromatize.  Most male bodybuilders will find they respond well to doses of 0.5-1mg every second day for the duration of their cycle.   It is not necessary to take this AI daily as it has a half-life of 30-60 hours in humans.

As mentioned, Arimidex is not a prime choice for post cycle therapy (PCT).  Although it has some function in helping to stimulate the production of testosterone, its highly suppressive effects on estrogen can result in a less than ideal effect on testosterone production.  It is suggested to use a SERM such as Nolvadex for PCT, in conjunction with HCG to boost natural testosterone levels.


What does Arimidex stack well with?

Arimidex is a highly effective estrogen blocker and therefore is suggested when using any variety of testosterone, or other steroids that aromatize, including dianabol, nandrolone, and others.
