I have a question about the correct dose of Armidex, but I did not want to start a new thread. I ordered some online but I have read many many different ideas on dosage on these forums. Post I have read here say anything from .5 ml twice weakly to 1 ml a day. I know that I have to see what works for me, but then I have also read that the product may be self limiting, so I could end up taking too much and wasting it.
Here is a bit of background:
I am male, 28 years old and the doc had my test checked because I was having bouts of depression and low energy levels. I had 228 test. I did not get any other numbers from him.
I also have been a lifter/exercise enthusiast for years mainly trying to shake a spare tire my whole life it seems. Then after the hypo gonad diagnosis from my doctor, I started to Google a LOT. I have read countless post, articles, and such (much of which on Tnation) and my life reads like a text book hypo gonad case to me, also I seem to have every thing pointing to elevated E2 levels including a lot of excess stomach fat, some small gyno in the chest, and a VERY hard time losing fat.
I eat better, work harder, do more cardio than anyone I know, but always the gut. I can lose fat, I get to the point where I have a lot of vascularity in my legs and arms but still the love handles, chest fat, and stomach fat persist.
So, now I am on Androgel and have decided to try Armidex with it right off the bat. I hope to see some nice results if I have always been high E2 and low test as I suspect. I already am seeing some changes from Andro, but I hope more will happen with the AI as well, but I want to know what to take.
I weigh 258lbs currently and I estimate I have about 20-30% bodyfat. So far I have been at .5ml of Armidex a day so far. Should I just stay at this level and look for results, or should I try a lower or higher dose.[/quote]
3.5mg of a-dex a week is probably too much. A little goes a long way. The potential problem from too much a-dex is joint pain, heart trouble, and the upset of brain function. Yes, really. 1.5 mg is a really effective dose especially for the small amount you are taking. Has your doctor ever done an A.M. cortisol test? If I were you, I would adjust my a-dex dosage, and get new b/w in 30 days.
