Hi everyone, I’m hoping you guys can help me out with an issue I’m having. I have been on 200mg/week Test Cyp since December 1st. Before my last blood work, I was having symptoms of high E2 (tired, more sore after workouts, feeling hot, difficulty losing weight, etc) but most troublesome was the sensitivity in my nipples was way up. After a couple weeks, started feeling a small firm mass in my right nipple, left one is fine. Finally got my blood results back, unfortunately I don’t have all of them on me, but I will update this thread once I get a copy. All results came back in the normal range, my creatinine was a little high at 1.4 (range is about .7-1.3) so he is watching that. My test was at 781 (350-1150) and my E2 was at 41 (10-45).
I asked for arimidex to help lower my E2 into the 20-22 range, but he didn’t think it would do anything for whatever reason. My doc prescribed tamoxifen (20mg/day) to help with the developing gyno, which quickly reduced the sensitivity and stopped the lump from getting any bigger. However, other E2 symptoms remain the same: tired, libido lower than usual, and difficulty losing weight which is frustrating since I’m starting prep for a show. I know KSman recommends .25mg arimidex EOD, so I’m wondering if I should stop the tamoxifen and switch to arimidex, continue taking the tamoxifen, or take both?
Thanks in advance for the help, and when I get a copy of my lab results I will update the thread.
