I’m 25 years old and have been on Androgel for the last 2.5 months. I had my T-Levels tested in January because I’ve always felt that my T levels were too damn low. I have little body hair - none on my chest - and very little facial hair. It has also been really difficult for me to put on muscle whereas fat comes on quite easily. I have slight gyno and when I do gain weight it goes to my love handles and man boobs primary. I also have a layer of fat over my abs that has just always been there. I think all of this is due to my low-t.
Anyway I had my levels tested in January and they were at 235! I was put on 5G of Androgel once daily but the doctor was an hour away and I was really tight on finances so I only filled the Rx once - stupid I know. Anyway, I started backup on Androgel at 7.5G and then bumped to 10G in Mid-April, so I have been on it daily for roughly 2 months.
I’m in the process of finding a good, proactive doctor in my area but I have a friend of mine who just continues to prescribe me 10G of Androgel daily until I can find a fulltime doctor here on the East Coast because he knows how much this issue bothers me and how much anxiety it causes me.
Anyway, I got a bottle of Liquid Arimidex and I plan on starting it on Saturday in conjunction with my Androgel. I was going to start at .25mg every other day, would that be an okay starting dose?
Also, how long after I stop taking Arimidex do E2 levels return to their normal level in your body? I want to get back to ‘normal’ before my labs, especially when it is with my new doctor.
Is there anything else you guys recommend I do? I have a big problem with where my fat is stored and it goes right to my man boobs, so frustrating! I don’t think I’ve taken my shirt off in front of other people in at least 3 years and I just can’t take it anymore. I think the Androgel is already helping with me burning fat and gaining muscle, won’t the Arimidex aide in the reduction of man boobs and fat storage in general?
Thanks so much guys, I really need all the help I can get at this point!
