Clomid Cycle, Need Advice on Dosage and AI


Hey guys,

First let me explain I’m not doing this to build muscle, I just want to feel more energy and drive. My testosterone currently is decent according to my latest test:

657 ng/dl total 125.5 pg/ml free

I’ve never taken any drugs before so these are my natural levels. I convinced my PCP to prescribe me some Clomid and Arimidex. I just need help with dosage.

The only reason why I asked for the AI is because I keep reading online of people increasing there testosterone levels vastly with just clomid alone but not feeling any of the positive effects. In fact many feel depressed etc. I’m assuming this is due to clomid increasing estradiol as well, so much so that the benefits from the raised test isn’t felt.

So what do you guys recommend my dosages be? And how often should I take each drug?


if your testosterone is already decent, doing this isn’t going to do a damn thing for you.

Seriously, you’re just fucking around with your hormones a little for no benefit whatsoever. Is it going to kill you? No, but’s not going to do you any good.


oh wait - actually it will. You’ll shoot awesome porn-star loads. I suppose it’d be worth it for that.


i agree with @Yogi1 and don’t think this is gonna do much for you.

i used clomid (25 mg/day) to treat low testosterone that i had a while back, but i was low, not normal. you might raise your testosterone a bit, but not likely enough to make a difference…

and some people feel like shit on SERMs… it’s not just that they raise total E2 (although they typically raise it a bit), but the SERM causes various effects by how it binds to estrogen receptors in the body.
