Ive been on TRT for 4 years now. First 2 1/2 I was blasting and cruising, then had some bad injuries that sidelined any workout for last 2 years. Since the injury and surgery, I toned it down to just trt, 200ml a week, pinning 100ml twice a week. My test was always around 800-1000. Ive always complained I feel like crap but thought it was due to other health conditions.
Finally i asked my dr to run a estrogen level check with my test lab work.
This is what is shows:
Free Test 300
Estradiol 81 (High)
FSH 1.3 (Very Low)
LH 0.2 (Very Low)
So after seeing the high estrogen, I remember way back when I first started this, that I had taken arimidex. I just took 1 capsule 1mg and it tanked my estrogen and have me the joint pains. So I thought I wasnt estrogen sensitive and never took it since.
With this latest lab work, I think I need to get back on it but wanted to confirm the formula for taking arimidex and avoiding tanking estrogen. I know its trial and routine lab work is needed to dial it in.
But I have capsules, so I cant break in half or quarters. I remember reading a suggestion to take .25 mg twice a week or every 3 days. Is that the generic base starting point? Can I take 1mg capsule a week or every ten days and get the same results or is the shelf life a factor in it effectiveness? Also, my capsules are over 3 years old, are they even still any good?
I just want to get some energy and libido back. Im 55 yo and feel like 75. TIA for your feedback.
