Anastrozole is barely able to dissolve in water. With the water based products, if chilled, the anastrozole may crystallize out and then its hard to keep in solution for some reason, even after heating. With products that are dissolved in glycerol and/or PEG there probably is no concern. If the product has some alcohol in it, it will be stable.
He said 3 pumps not drops. He has a pump dispenser, not a dropper. You will need to adjust your dose at some point and all you need now is a dose baseline. 1mg/week is a good start, but nothing magic considering different body weight, %BF and other variables. It will be easier to take 4 drops ED or 8 drops EOD. The half life works very well with EOD dosing.
When T levels rise and fall with less frequent injections, the serum anastrozole levels are mostly not right. Steady T levels from EOD T injections create a situation where anastrozole can work best. It seems that anastrozole needs can increase over time for some, even when TRT leads to a major reduction in %BF. So doses may need to increase over time. I need 2.625mg/wk for a 175mg T cyp, which is 1.5mg per 100mg test cyp. A dose specific increase of 50% over what worked well for me initially.
And over time my TT and FT levels fell, indicating an increased clearance rate of T. We increased my T dose to try to get my FT levels high and that worked. Now Labcorp will not report actual readings and I will have to find a new lab. The point of this is that one’s needs for anastrozole [and T] may not be fixed and dosing changes can be expected. We now target FT levels and really do not care how high TT goes as TT is really more of a measure of SHBG bound T.
[My SHBG levels should be lowered by the higher T levels and that can explain how my FT increase was disproportionately higher than the increase in T (125–>175)]. My albumin also increased and that increases bio-T as most of bio-T is T weakly bound to albumin. It is FT and bio-T that drives T–>E aromatization. Higher FT and bio-T can be expected to increase anastrozole needs. SHBG bound T is probably not participating in T–>E aromatization.
GeoBob: Watch for on-line pharmacies shipping from out of the country. Importing T [or hCG] your self is always criminal even if you have a script. I get 10ml 200mg/ml test cyp [Watson’s] from Sam’s Club with a business membership for around $42.00. Some get good prices at Costco.
