    just wondering if you drop your e2 too low from too much arimidex, how long does it take to clear the system?

    The half-life is 50 hours...

    I've crashed my E2 a time or two when it has taken a few weeks to rebound. Not sure about half life but LW64 knows what he is talking about.

    Hang in there.

    thanks for the replies, I have upped my test and hcg dosages in the meantime to try to get some e2 going, will keep a proverbial eye on things and adjust accordingly, it might get confusing to detect the swing the other way though.... I noticed my abs looked super dry and ripped lately

    I am extremely sensitive to adex, I take 1/16 of a 1 mg tab every 15 days or so. Prior to that, if I took a whole one or even a half it would be a good 2 weeks before I felt "normal". There is no perfect in the HRT world!

    so does that 1/16 help or could you just not bother?

    A few days at least.

    It rebounds faster when you are on TRT because some of the T does convert to E2. However the adex will block alot of it from converting lol so you can only wait till the levels come down.

    according to the profiles, arimidex can only get rid of about 50% of estrogens, so why is it supposedly possible to "tank" estrogen using arimidex?

    the articles say letrozole can get rid of 98%

    That's all?

    Are you sure you really need to take it?

    There may be lots of individual variation, but it seems to me that over time, if you are not overloading yourself with T, the E2 response can diminish and the need for an AI goes away.

    I only take it when my nips start to get itchy

    Yes! I have tried going off it a few times only to get WAY to sensitive, emotional, ED/libido, bloating, ... and when I have taken too much - aching, ED and couldn't finish if my life depended on it.

    There are some of us out there that are very sensitive to arimidex.

    How on Earth do you break up a tablet into 16 equal size pieces?!

    I'm not sure how he does but I get 0.5mg capsules (compound pharmacy) and dissolve it in a 1ml syringe of vodka. 0.1ml = 0.05mg
