I’m not going to ask you guys to completely evaluate my condition in this post, there is just one specific thing I’d like to know.
I was previously prescribed Clomid for secondary hypogonadism. My physician says that my estrogen is now too high (I don’t have the number in front of me, but he said that it’s almost high enough to be normal for a female), so he prescribed “Anastrozole”, an aromatase inhibitor.
I didn’t take a close look at the script, but when I picked up the drug from the pharmacy, I received four tabs, each containing 1 mg. The instructions said to take this just once per week. I’ve been doing this for four weeks now, and my fatigue, the primary symptom I’ve been trying to overcome, actually became much worse last week to the point that I missed work.
My question is for today,
Is this an appropriate dosage of this “Anastrozole”, or could I have inadvertently been given too low a dose by either the physician or the pharmacist?
In any case, I will be getting back in touch with the doctor to clarify this.
