Combining Raloxifene and Aromasin


#1

Has anyone seen any data that suggests one lower the effectiveness of the other?

My research seems to say that there's no problem using both together but there's dudes on here cough cough cycobushmaster cough cough who are better at the research thing than I am.

Thanks guys

i just double-checked the interaction list on Drugs.com and it looks good.

are you using this for treating gyno?

yeah had a bit of an E rebound lately and ole lefty’s acting up a bit so I’m on 25mg a-sin and 60mg ralox currently. My gyno’s always responded really well to treatment so I’m not freaking out.

I think I’m going to stay on a low dose AI pretty much indefinitely.

One is an AI and the other a SERM. SERMs do increase estrogen levels and you really should be using both together.

I agree with low dose AI indefinitely. Some labs would be useful.

thanks mate but I know all that. I was just checking there was no interaction between the two.

Do you have a recommendation for an AI dose during PCT and when I’m not using any exogenous hormones? I was thinking aromasin at 12.5mg and 6.25mg daily, respectively

“aromasin at 12.5mg and 6.25mg daily, respectively” seems reasonable. You can verify with E2 labs.

No interaction between the two. Both are needed. SERM’s protect “selected” tissues but you still need to maintain E2.
