First post here but I have been reading for months and have to thank KSMan and all the other helpful people who share here. Canadian guy living in Korea who started TRT in April.
I just read a recent KSman reply to a post about taking AI timed with T injection. What I would like to know is why we don’t try to do it EOD? My reasoning being that arimidex had close to a 48 hour half life and by taking it every 2 days we should reach a steady state after a short time with consistent levels of AI in the system, no? Same goes with the T with 7-8 day half life where after 40 days I believe, we reach a steady state.
Are we saying that the T is not in fact released somewhat evenly over its half life and we have to attack it with the AI right away? Please help me understand.
Personally, my doc had no idea about using an AI for TRT. I started in April and just tested E2 for the first time at my request 2 weeks ago. Came in at 65 (way out of the ranges which I can post later). Anyhow, convinced her to prescribe me Arimidex at 1mg/week as per recommended in stickies. However, I cut it up into 4 and take EOD with the idea of getting into some consistent level based on half life.
Any feedback on how and why to time AI differently would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for sharing your time and knowledge here.
