Odd, Amerikan, as I’ve always heard that clomid worked as a very mild anti-e when using it during cycle. Perhaps Bill Roberts can shed some more light on this?
Arimidex is always supposed to be the best choice for a continual usage anti-estrogen while cycling, but ask yourself this - is it REALLY worth the $200 minimum you’re going to spend on the batch of tabs for simply worrying that you MIGHT get gyno, or would it be better for you to just stock up with 20-50 tabs of Nolvadex and hold on to them in case you need them? Since you never listed what you’re using and what dosages, we can’t give too much advice. Everyone responds differently; most people can go fairly high without any signs of gyno (I’ve done 1500mg/wee of a few combined items in the past without the slightest sign) and there are the rare ones who will get itchy nipples after a mere 250-300mg of test/week. You won’t know how prone you are until you do your cycle. If you’re going to hit it hard and heavy for your first time (1000mg or more per week) then perhaps the arimidex wouldn’t be so bad. But, if you’re going to do something like 300mg test with 200mg deca/week, I wouldn’t sweat it much and would just get the nolvadex and hold tight if you need it, as in all odds, you won’t.
Trust me, a lot of the gyno scare is a ton of hype. Everyone has heard the age-old “I knew this guy who grew big tits from doing only 200mg of test per week!” Don’t fall for it, but if you’re going to do a cycle, always be prepared for the worst and keep the necessities on hand. But, remember, don’t use the nolvadex unless you feel a need to! It has been said to slightly inhibit gains on cycle if used daily as some estrogen is necessary for ideal muscle growth. Even I thought for a day that I had the start of gyno once, my nipple itched a tiny bit, and I kept cool and decided to wait a day to see what happened - turns out it wasn’t gyno, just a mild feeling of irritation likely from sweating while working out. So, hope this helped a bit. Later! Flax
