Anastrozole, commonly referred to as Arimidex, belongs to a class of drugs known as aromatase inhibitors. These aromatase inhibitors eliminate the production of estrogen through binding to and disabling the aromatase enzyme, which is the enzyme responsible for the conversion of androgens into estrogen.
Arimidex was used to treat female breast cancer and was favored with a higher rate of success than Nolvadex. In 2002, after further research of the success rate in breast cancer patients, bodybuilders, athletes and anabolic steroid users began to investigate the use of Arimidex and the benefits of using this drug to suppress estrogen.
For the purpose of Gynecomastia control and general on-cycle Estrogen control, Arimidex is to be used at a general range of 0.5 – 1mg per day, and can be adjusted depending on the user’s tolerance and reaction to the compound. Everyone should adjust their Arimidex dosage according to their individual response. It is not uncommon for 0.5mg/day to even be too much (or too little) for some. It should also always be remembered that the purpose here is Estrogen control during a cycle, not total elimination of Estrogen levels.
An Arimidex dosage of 0.5mg to 1mg per day should be sufficient for the duration of any Post Cycle Therapy length. Arimidex possesses a half-life of approximately 48 hours, and it is important to also understand that peak blood plasma levels will not be achieved with Arimidex until a full week (7 days) of consistent use is achieved. Arimidex can also be taken at any time of day, with or without food.
