Here are some quotes from the steroid.com Letrozole profile:
[quote]1) In at least one documented incidence, Letrozole (Femara) reduced estrogen in the test subject to undetectable levels, and increased LH, FSH and SHBG (4).
- An effective dose of Letrozole (Femara) is .25-.5mg/day (I use .25mgs/day), but be forewarned, if you go over that amount, it can kill your sex drive.[/quote]
Here are my questions:
If using too high of a dose, or even a normal dose, wouldn’t the rise SHBG be a bad thing? I’ve been having some dosing problems and if I go overboard (which seems to be easy for me) it seems as if I have less kick from the test. After stopping all letro use, withing about a week my strength began going up again, I got insane pumps (which had not been as great on the letro, though this could be due to the lack of water retention), and I was having some erectile dysfuntion (related to questions 2). Would what seems like the inhibited effect of testosterone be due to the use of letro causing a rise in SHBG?
I’ve been using .25mg/day of a liquid letrozole product. It seems that within a day or two of using it my sex drive is highly diminished and my erections aren’t as hard, plus my morning wood is gone. If I stop use, within a couple days I have massive morning wood, raging erections and crave sex much more. Perhaps the letrozole is overdosed or I’m just sensitive to it. This is also using a gram of test cyp per week! Is there any other AI that doesn’t have these side effects? Letrozole seems to be the most powerful AI out there right now but I hear more people talk about Arimidex. Any thoughts?
Thanks for any input.
