Will Arimidex Get Rid of Pre-Existing Gyno?

Just curious will Arimidex get rid of pre existing gyno? I wanted to stay away from
Nolvadex because of its effects on igf-1

I think you’re better off gambling on the effects of slightly-lower IGF-1 than crashed e2. Are you running anything now?

I’m running test and anavar

Running test and anavar currently

Whenever I get a gyno flare up I take 40mg of Tamoxifen for 3 months and it shrinks it down every time, without fail. Depending on the quality, you might get away with 20mg.

Arimidex, Exemestane, etc will only deal with circulating estrogen. I doubt it will do much for lumps that have already formed. They may atrophy on their own, over time, if you keep your estrogen very low for very long with Arimidex or some other inhibitor but you won’t feel good.

I’ve done it both ways and I’ll take Nolva any day.

I’ve heard raloxifene does the job
Raloxifene belongs to the second-gen selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) drug class that exhibits anti-estrogenic effects on breast tissue, it produced a greater regression of the mammary gland than tamoxifen.
