I had everything lined up for my first cycle, 500 mg test cyp per week split up into E3.5D doses. All my stuff was known-good (pharma or well-known underground lab) except for aromasin in powder form. I received the latter just before starting and did not test it until I had begun, because subconsciously I think I wanted to start no matter what. Tests showed it to be definitively fake. I started taking 10mg nolva ED 6 days in with hopes of soon procuring an AI.
So now I’m 2 weeks in, everything is great minus night sweats and heart palpitations (not associated with raised BP, and resting pulse is only up 10 bpm) that are improving each day, and I’m wondering how to transition. I’ve just started arimidex at 0.33 mg EOD and understand the nolva will make it a bit less effective. How do I go about transitioning to straight arimidex?
I I think understand the difference between SERMs and AIs… It is too late for the E2 already in my system, so the SERM needs to deal with that (protecting select tissues). I need the AI to deal with future aromatisation.
I am currently thinking I should keep taking nolva ED for another week to deal with most of the E2 already floating around, all the while taking EOD arimidex to prevent much new E2 from being synthesized. Does this sound right?
I’ve also read nolva somewhat inhibits anastrozole and letrozole. Perhaps slightly increased arimidex is warranted just till maybe 3 days after the last nolva dose?
I’ll be getting E2 re-checked in two or three weeks. My pre-cycle level was on the low side at 18 pg/mL.
I’m also using hCG (250 iu 3/wk) and have plenty of novla and clomid for PCT.
