I am a 51 year old male, and started taking a 25mg of exemestane every third day since mid-Decemeber. I am not on - nor was on - any other dosages (steroids, et al).
Prior to starting this dosage, I did not have blood tests done, but did do saliva tests - probably not the most accurate - and had low test and high estradiol levels, per the saliva test.
I just completed blood work after almost six months of taking exemestane and having my blood taken in the mid afternoon (test levels are lower), my test level was 755 ng/dl, which is very, very high.
Unfortunately, the doctor would not/could not test my estrogen levels. I hope I have not completely zapped my estrogen levels.
I have switched to a compound pharmacy’s Arimedex because it is much, much cheaper than exemestane, and I am hoping to continue to maintain high test levels.
For guys over 50, I definely recommend it.
