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.MOTIV8 II Challenge

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.

May want to look into going the transdermal route too (E-Form etc)...better delivery with a lower dose....big savings$$$....but not as convenient as capsules...

Trans is defenitly the way to go. Good luck on that JJC..... you should log it, as I think dsade would appreciate it.

ok, well I went ahead and started my bottle of e-form yesterday and it seems like my nuts are actually growing a little.
