    How long can I take Nolvadex?


    Hi guys
    I have to tell you first off I am a total newbie about this stuff.
    I am losing my hair and got gyno from Propecia. I want to take it again
    using either Arimidex or Nolvadex? I would have to take whichever of these indefinitely while I took Propecia, but someone told me I cannot take Nolvadex indefinitely.
    It seems to be better than Arimidex for being specific to gyno according some studies I looked at, but apparenlty it will start to upregulate my estrogen levels if I take it for a very long time? Is that meaningless if I never bother coming off it? Or is Arimidex wise? I fear that Arimidex may not prevent gyno coming back.
    Thank you very much for any and all help.

    No you cannot stay on it indefinately. Neither one. Nolvadex originally used as a breast cancer treatment was given to women in dosages moderate to high over long periods of time. They eventually after years of use had many problems. Liver damage, other forms of cancer, eye damage(ocular nerve is what i think its called), dr.d even knew a women that lost her hair and teeth from extended use over years period of time. Not safe.

    Do some more research.

    I would be taking .25 mg of Arimidex every other day if I go on that. What are you defining as moderate to high dosages?

    I don't have the science ot back it up but another facet of this issue may be that it is not your overall estrogen level that is a problem but rather your estrogen level relative to your DHT level. Since your DHT is so low from lack of 5-alpha reductase conversion the relative effect of your estrogen is much greater. While blocking your estrogen receptors may work it is possible then it will cause an increase in testosterone production and thus an increased need for higher dosages of Propecia. Another plan of action is to find someone you trust that has some old prohormones of the DHT sort M-5aa MDHT and make it into a topical and put it around the nipple area. Does anyone know if it would work for gyno of this cause? Also can the methylated versions of these hormones be put into a topical? Also see if your doc can proscribe you something along these lines 9don't know if there is a commercially made product but possibly through a compounding pharmacy).
