Arimidex is an anti Aromatase or an Aromatase Inhibitor. We don’t use them for PCT. We use them to inhibit our bodies ability to convert certain compounds into estrogen. I bet your gyno, sex drive issues would have been eliminated if you used an AI like arimidex when you were using the dbol. The other common AIs are aromasin and femara. We use AIs on cycle to control estrogen levels.
For PCT we use a SERM like clomid or Nolvadex. One of the things they do is attach to certain tissues and block estrogens ability to attach and effect said tissue.
Using an AI during PCT can actually hinder recovery. I know so many sites out there have PCT plans with AIs I them, I see aromasin in a lot of them but they do not belong there. Even if they don’t hinder your personal recovery they will tank your Estrogen and you will feel like crap. Dry popping joints, very tired and lethargic and usually a bad mood to boot.
For your second cycle; test is loved for a reason. If you can still get good results with just test then why waist money. Your first time with any given compound is usually your best response per mg used so save those first times for when test isn’t doing what it use to and you need something different to get to the next level. I personally wish I had not tried all the common AAS’s so quickly. Now all I can do is try to stack differently or increase the dose and deal with those issues.
If you just really want to stack something then might i suggest Proviron. Proviron won’t actually make you gain but it will make your gains better! Helps keep the gains quality, helps burn fat, helps harden and just about everyone responds well to it. Proviron makes any cycle better!
If you absolutely have to have another anabolic in there to help you gain a few extra pounds then look at winstrol. They usually dont fake it and it will help you finish the cycle strong if you use it at the end. It is bad on cholesterol so beware.
With this being your second cycle you really should still be working on how to manage just testosterone and the recovery after the cycle. Even though you might not have had any issues with the first recovery that doesn’t mean anything.
I would put this out there for you to think about, try a PCT with just Nolvadex and see how it compares to the clomid PCT. Lots of us prefer Nolvadex for a reason so you might as well see what the hype is all about. Clomid really is a crap shoot, so many of us react to it then there is the possible vision damage.
Ultimately the first three cycles really should be just testosterone or at least that should apply to most of us. It really can get just about every result you want so why pay more for the same results in the end?
I will say your original dose was pretty freaking high! Are you sure your source is legit? I would have grown tits at 875mgs of test a week.
