I've been given a script for Arimidex, 1mg/day to treat gyno that's started to develop from testosterone replacement. The most common dosage recommended here seems to be .25mg/E3D. That's a whopping twelve times smaller! I'm really not sure what to do here. Should my dose be higher because I've already started to develop gyno? Should I start somewhere in the middle (say .25mg/day) and see how I feel? What are the markers that I should be looking for as for the right dose, or one that's too high?

I have a follow up question to yours, kasumet, if you don't mind sharing a thread and that is-
why E3D? Does it have to do with half life? Is arimidex effective in the body for three days?

Because it's nearly impossible to administer less than .25mg at a time, due to the fact that it comes in 1mg pills.

Yes, because it comes in 1mg pills, and it's easier to take a whole pill every three days than a third of one every day, and doctors will go with what's easiest to do 90% of the time.

So the drug itself will exert its anti-estrogen effect for three days, regardless of dose; no need to dose daily.

Arimidex is actually the ONLY TRT med that my insurance company will cover...$20 copay. Test cyp is a no-go (Androgel only) and HcG requires some sort of fertility plan to get approval.

I'm taking .5mg e/d and notice no negative effects. I feel a lot better, not perfect though.
Still can not lose my stomach/pec fat no matter what I try!!? My food is spot on, as well as training..yet I have a layer of fat the won't go away.

Arimidex is the best way.
Eventually as one felt better and lost BF% and upped energy exposure, they cut cut back on dosage and possibly wean themselves off at some point, or at least to a much smaller dose.
Start at .25mg E3D

However, as a very *General* rule of thumb, where E1 goes so does E2, they tend to go in balance.
With you though Nails, your on exogenous prescription drugs, like testosterone, which can throw everyone for a loop and anything can happen.
Im saying for a normal individual not on any HRT, usually E1 and E2 go hand in hand.
