I have to own up to being in my mid-forties, so I’m more worried about aromatisation than perhaps many of the younger guys in this forum. As a result I’ve reached deeply into my wallet and ordered some Arimidex and some Clomid (not available locally) from a web pharmacy. My intention is to do an 8-10 week cycle (my second ever) of 500mg Sustanon and 400mg Deca per week. My previous cycle of half these dosages worked well for me. During that cycle I used Novaldex as estrogen protection and Tribex as a nut-kicker at the end (because I couldn’t get the recommended Clomid). For the rest of the background I should say that I’m 220lbs and about 14% bf. My objective is to add mass to areas of my physique that I feel are lacking.
OK, enough background. Given my age and the doses, I thought that I ought to consider prostate protection as well. I show no signs of any problems and I want to keep it that way! Now the protection on this cycle is costing me a shitload (Arimidex $177 for 28 x 1mg, Clomid $12 for 5 x 50mg) and so when I saw the price of Proscar ($135 for 30) I nearly fell off my chair. Serious bucks as well (by comparison the gear is dirt cheap - 5 pounds UK for the Deca and 6 pounds for the Sus (around $8 and $9.6 respectively)! So after the long preamble my question is this. Is Saw Palmetto a viable alternative to Proscar, or should I just bite the bullet and dig into my wallet again? If Proscar is the answer, what are the recommendations for dosage and frequency? I have no idea how susceptible I am to BPH problems - I don't show any now, although I'm relatively young for the natural onset of such things - but as far as male pattern baldness is concerned it's too late - I'm already fairly shiny on top.
All opinions welcomed, but especially those from our good friends with pharmacology backgrounds (hint, hint!). Thanks in advance.
