I just wanted to get some other opinions on the timing of my arimidex and what you guys think you would do in my situation. I work with Dr. Saya at defymedical and we have made some good adjustments, but its going to be a bit before my next appointment and I wanted to see if anyone had similar experiences.
So, first off, I’m a morbidly obese male, 6’ 1, 450lbs. I was taking a large doseage of testosterone before starting with Defymedical. I was injecting 1.25ml of 200mg/ml weekly. I was started on 60mg 3 times a week (0.3ml of the 200mg/ml, assuming i have the math right) I have since had my dose increased and am now doing 0.3ml (60mg) of the 200mg/ml every other day, 350 (closer to 360 due to the markings on my syringe) of HCG, and 0.25 arimidex 3 times a week.
My situation seems to be ,at this point, the timing of the arimidex. On the week where my arimidex and injections are on the same day, I feel best. So, for example, I take arimidex on MWF and inject on M W F Sun, I feel pretty good. Then, if I take the arimidex on MWF but i’m injecting tues, thurs, saturday…i dont feel nearly as good. Increase in anxiety to some degree, decrease in libido. I discussed this with the PA and he recommended two options…either I switch and just move the arimidex to T TH SAT one week, MWF the next (and so on)… OR inject test one day, then HCG the next, and keep alternating that and leave the arimidex on the MWF schedule.
My SHBG is usually around 17-18 at most. My estradiol (sensitive) was 20 until I went to the every other day injection and it went up to 24 , which isnt earth shattering.
I havent yet found the sweet spot and I’m wondering what you guys think I should try? My biggest concern is that the effects of TOO much arimidex can cause some of the symptoms of low T, so I dont want to haphazardly be taking the medication in an ineffective manner. For example…if I took the pills on T Thur, Sat, I’d be taking another pill on Mon, Wed, Fri the week after…and I’ve have long periods of 3-4 days where I wouldnt be taking the pill versus taking the pill a day or so after. If i’ve confused anyone, I apologize…I will absolutely clarify anything. Thanks for the opinions!
