There’s a guy I know from my gym that’s around my age (55) who gets Androgel by prescription and he also takes Clomid that he buys from “a source.” He claims that the Clomid prevents all or most of the negative possible side effects from the Androgel and swears by the combo. He’s got an impressive physique for any age, so I can’t argue with his results. He’s very muscular and while I wouldn’t call him ripped to shreds, he is very lean (no breast fat and visible abs). In short, exactly how I want to look.
My guy says he can’t get the Clomid from his HMO because they don’t approve it for men.
So what’s the scoop on the Androgel/Clomid stack? Have you tried it? If it works exactly as he claims, why wouldn’t it be part of mainstream HRT therapy? The reading I’ve done from places like www.mesomorphosis.com seems to indicate that many guys on juice also take Clomid to prevent estrogen problems which seem to be among the major negative side effects of Androgel. As I understand it, the testosterone from the Androgel can be converted to estrogen and that causes the typical estrogen problems of enlarged breasts and fat retention. Are there any strategies to prevent the conversion of testosterone to estrogen? Clomid is clearly more of an after-the-fact remedy.
I’ll be seeing my owm primary care guy from my HMO next week to start the HRT process and so I want to have my ducks lined up before I go in.
