What is a normal starting dose of Armidex ?
And how long does it take to work ?
I am on 100mg Primoteston per week.
I think a normal dose is around 1mg to .5 mg.
Do Estradiol Ultrasensitive test at Quest or LabCorp.
You want to be in (25 -30) range.
This is rough range, and may not make you happy all together but will put you close to where you want to be.
Specifically, to find more accurate, personal value, go by behaviour of your pines.
You took literally my misspelling.
I ment penis not pines.
If it sways, says that your estradiol may not be in the correct level.
Correct estradiol level is a good predictor of penis behaviour, assuming
FreeT is over 160
and DHT is in the upper range or even slightly above top range.
There are many other reasons for good erection, but these three are major. If they are incorrect, you may pretty much guarantee erection problems.
Having FreeT and DHT in more or less correct level, E2 is still hard to control.
Someone with low E2 will have to load up on FreeT, hoping to raise E2 that way.
Someone with higher E2 values can control E2 with proper amount of Arimidex.
It is trial and error, one have to provide regulation that used to be done automatically by Mother nature.
I am in favor of using testosterone injections (if possible), it provides predictable test leves in the blood.
Transdermals are variable in their action by their nature, we have already plenty of variables.
In the first phase of TRT it is good to press for quick stabilization of FreeT and DHT at some decent level and stay there long time, do not make changes there.
Then concentrate on just Arimidex dose vs Estrodial.
Everyboy need little different E2 level to feel good.
If that does not work, time to explore many other possible reasons.
Yeah, my doc is running an Estradiol test for me. If it's too high I will ask him to prescribe Arimidex. See if I can turn my little sapling into a mighty oak!
