Doctor is Stopping Estrogen Blocking Pills


#1

My doctor has stopped my prescription of estrogen blocker some FDA ruling.
My questions are has anyone else run into the problem and is there a estrogen blocker supplement I can take that works.
Thanks

You don’t even know the name of the drug that you are taking?

What is an estrogen blocker? An AI or a SERM? Please be precise!

“FDA ruling” sounds fishy.

i just spoke to him again today and he said that 100 mg of zinc should do as a repalcement. I take 1ml of testosterone cypionate every 7 days and .5 ml hcg twice a week and .5mg of Anastrozole twice a week

Sounds really strange to me. This Dr. is saying to take 2.5 times the upper limit of Zinc which goes against research based medicine and then deprescribes a perfectly good antineoplastic which will likely never be discontinued? Either this is a fabrication or youre seeing one of those “doctors” ie naturopath or wellness physician.

No he is a board certified internal medicine doctor who specializes in hormonal therapy

Did he give you a time frame for your 100mg/day zinc? Like two weeks or indefinitely?

He didn’t say. How much should I be taking.


#9

Well, some sources say 20mg max/day others say 40mg/day. There may be therapeutic reasons for a loading dose but long-term aromatase activity doesn’t seem practical. Maybe KSman will be able to answer that. It’s the first I heard of it.

bound to fail. You could reduce and/or split your dose up to lessen the need for an AI. Wouldn’t work for me, but everyone is different. If E2 is slightly over your could try boron, DIM and/or calcium d-glucarate. You also try some of the OTC sups one would find on prohormone or bodybuilding sites.

you could get the anastrozole on your own. research chem sites or international pharmacy.
