Anadrol CyclesResults 1 to 7 of 7. I zrimidex here some anadrol, and was thinking of doing a cycle with 50 milligrams every day for 6 weeks. I think the cycle length and dosage are correct. But I am lost with anadrol and arimidex cycle anti-estrogens I will need. People keep telling me different things, and can't explain why.
Anadrol cycle: SERM or AI?
Results 1 to 7 of 7. I got here some anadrol, and was thinking of doing a cycle with 50 milligrams every day for 6 weeks. I think the cycle length and dosage are correct. But I am lost with the anti-estrogens I will need. People keep telling me different things, and can't explain why. Originally Posted by gonefond.

Therefore, it is useless to use AI's on anadrol cycles, since the aromatase enzymes are not involved in the estrogen related side effects. Therefore, only one option is left here - to reduce the estrogen receptors that are activated by anadrol, and the best compound for this are the selectice estrogen receptor modulators SERM , such as nolvadex, which should be taken at a dosage of 50 mgs per day.

How or why it is so estrogenic is a bit of a mystery. There are some theories and the most solid is that Oxymetholone can activate the estrogen receptors to a stronger degree than many other steroids. Due to the estrogenic nature of Anadrol, gynecomastia can be a real concern, as can excess water retention. In order to protect from gynecomastia you will need an anti-estrogen medication.
Anti-estrogens will also have a positive effect on water retention, but when it comes to their use with Anadrol there is an interesting note. The common anti-estrogens used by performance athletes include serms like nolvadex and Aromatase Inhibitors like aromasin. A final note, controlling excess water retention is very important.
If excess water retention gets out of hand it can have a negative impact on blood pressure. The androgenic side effects of Anadrol can include acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. These are genetically based side effects. For example, many who supplement will not have a problem with acne, but those who are genetically sensitive may find they have a problem.
It should also be noted; 5-alpha reductase inhibitors will not affect this steroids androgenicity. It is the 5-alpha reductase enzyme that causes testosterone to reduce to DHT, but in this case there is nothing to inhibit as Oxymetholone is already a DHT compound. This is some great information that I did not see anywhere, and everybody recommended me to use AI's with anadrol.
Now I see that those are useless, so I will use tamoxifen - luckily I still got quite a good bunch of it left from before. Thanks everybody for the interesting conversation here!
