HPTA Restart Advice - Accutane User

Hey guys, I’m going to be doing a restart with Clomid and nolvdex. Clomid 25,25,25.25 and nolva 40,40,20,20. I have done a restart in the past with only Clomid, and it raised my estrogen through the roof, I got bad sides while on it but it did increase my natural for a good number of years. My bad diet I believe caused it to come back down again. My question is, would adding nolva help to battle sides I got with it? Is there any reason to be adding the nolva? Or could one add arimidex after the restart to stabilize estrogen levels? Again, I have never ran nolva, so I’m curious as to common reactions from it.

Your high E2 was from too much LH induced by Clomid dose too high for you.
Stacking Clomid+Nolvadex is simply wrong.
When you get high T–>E2 inside the testes, Arimidex/anastrozole cannot manage T–>E2 inside the tests.

I was only on 12.5 mg of Clomid every day. That’s the lowest dose I’ve heard of from anyone, I dunno how my sides were so bad at that dose. This was a protocol from a doctor. After the Clomid for four weeks he put me on arimidex to lower my estrogen.
