I went in for 1 month check in and labs today (been on 150mg test cyp for 4 weeks).
I mentioned to the doc that my libido has tanked in the past two weeks (it was pretty good pre-TRT, it dropped alarmingly to nothing), and that my anxiety has spiked. The obvious assumption is estrogen. I won’t have new lab results til next week, but based on symptoms, the doc gave me a few 1mg anastrozole tablets, cut into quarters. I popped one .25mg piece during the appointment.
I know I need to wait til I have labs back to calculate the actual AI regimen I need on a longer term basis, but in the short term, the zero libido and anxiety thing is terrible and I want to counteract it ASAP.
Question: is it beneficial / safe to take another .25mg of anastrozole today or tomorrow? Or more over the next few days?
Pre TRT I was at:
- Total T: 458
- SHBG: 55.2
- Free T: 6.74
- Estradiol: 18.3
