I have noticed that since starting the Arimidex, my BP has been increased, especially the 48 hours after dosing. I also noticed that my hair started to rapidly fall out. I know that this could possible be because of TRT, and I am going to check my DHT levels (starting using Nizoral shampoo as a precaution, however I am not worried too much). However, I am using a small dose of Test. 60mg per week, and I didn’t think the hairloss would happen that fast (have only been on T for about 1 month 1 week). I also experience headaches when I take it. I get this weird pressure feeling in front of my ears as well as just general head aches.
I have stopped the Arimidex for now, I was suppose to take it this morning with my 30mg T injection but I held it. I ordered some exemestane in case I do need an AI in the future, but one that wont cause a rebound because of its suicidal nature. Im hoping that my low dose of 60mg, split into two sub q shots a week will help keep my E2 down.
Has anyone else had these symptoms? I did an internet search and found a few other people who had similar issues. I know all AI’s can cause side effects, but I feel like arimidex was really messing with my head and BP.
