    No. You won't get a once and for all answer.

    But I'm leaning towards mild suppression that really isn't going to amount to much concern. In other words: if you run formestane for say 4 weeks, you won't need a PCT or anything like that.

    I personally am a big fan of formestane. But call me biased since Bill was the guy who "discovered" it.

    I've always thought formestane upregulated the HTPA? I would like to know this as well, but like Aet said, I'm sure we won't get one definite answer.

    I don't have experience, but I do have a connection. The guy that first brought formestane to the market is my boss and homeslice: Bill Llewellyn.

    I should be getting Anabolics 2007 in the mail soon and I'll consult the profile on formestane for you when it arrives.

    Not sure I am allowed to do this but here is a nasty debate between Bill Llewellyn and Patrick Arnold himself.

    Formasin or 6-oxo - Mind and Muscle Forums

    I myself along with many others like the effects that Formestane has both "On and Off cycle". Increased libido, leaning out bigtime, and increased Test. The amount of shutdown I think is very little simply based on my experience with it...sort of like supplementing on low dose DHEA...A Dr D reccomendation that I also like.

    Bill L maintained, in some conversations we had a few years ago, that 4OHA increases ITT. he quoted the internal bloodwork that his company did prior to selling the breast cancer treatment as a supplement...it was pretty convincing evidence. the increases are on par with AT (6OXO) if not more.

    i also am a fan of formestane, but i find it to be surprisingly androgenic - i get very oily, horny and a little edgy - much like with nettle extract, and very different from injected test. i dont know why...

    anyway, i wouldnt worry about shutdown with formestane.

    Should you worry about shutdown if you use Formestane for a period of time longer than 4 weeks? Say 7 or 8 weeks?

    Or instead should it be cycled for 4 week periods at a time for better results?

    If it was me I'd go for it....8 weeks on ....but that's just me....my joints may get a little squeeky during that time though

    Yeah I've got the supplies for a transdermal. I'll be going with ~200 mg Form a day.

    Then I guess I'll just run it until I'm out of it...which will be about 48 days or so.

    Would anyone say that formestane and a SERM would be acceptable for PCT?
