    This question has been posed quite a bit and from everything that I read, it sounds like you dont want to do more than .25mg ed as femera is pretty strong stuff and possibly at a higher dose could hinder your gains. But like anything else, it can also depend on the individual.

    Everyone says something different - Im running the same (Test E 400mg EW + Var 50mg ED ) and I've started on 0.5mg letro + 10mg Nolva ED - this is on the low side, but so is this test dose........
    the most common advice I've seen is 1.25mg ED or 1.25mg EOD...
    if I start to bloat will up mine to 1mg ED

    wow, just wow. .25mg every day huh? 1/4mg ed wouldn't be enough to do anythign for me. I run 1.25ed and that is not nearly the dose i would use for a highly androgenic cycle like the one i'm about to run.

    .25 wouldn't do much for you, you should run at least 1mg IMO, and if its too much you can back down, but that is a typical dose!

    Well, as I said, there are differant views on doseage, but the majority of the reading I have done says to at least start it at a low dose, .25mg a day as femera is real strong stuff. I know that the femera I have from our sponser doses at around .30mg per squirt. but then again, it has alot to do with the individual.

    Femara can have a negative effect on you lipid profile. Using nolva along with it would help with the problem.

    So mudman are you saying that EOD (as opposed to ED) helps you maintain a better lipid profile?
    (I use 10mg nolva along with my letro for this very reason)

    i think people get confused over the issue of estrogen.if taking highly aromatising aas at moderate to high dosages estrogen should be controlled.if its too high it can cause problems(fluid retention,bitch tits etc) taking it too low with an AI also causes problems(lipid profile,libido etc).estrogen is needed to make the most of the anabolic benefits of aromatising aas cycles, we therefore want estrogen high enough for the anabolic response but not so high to cause issues.i feel AI's should be run at low dosage to start with in combination with 10mg of nolvodex for health benefits and only increased if required.dosages i would go with would be 1.25mg of letrozole eod + nolvo increasing to 1.25mg ed only if necessary OR 0.25mg of arimidex eod with nolvodex increasing to 0.25mg ed.
    this will depend on individual response and cycle dosage of aromatising aas.i have seen posts where arimidex is used at 1mg/day or letrozole at 2.5mg/day purely for cosmetic reasons of eliminating water.with extended course length and some users never coming off we have to look at the long term implication of suppressing estrogen at near zero on the health of the individual.i rarely see anyone mentioning also that suppressing estrogen excessively can cause serious episodes of depression.again something the extended cycler should take into consideration for longterm feeling of wellbeing.

    Thanks for the info. This whole topic is very dependant upon what your cycle consists of and therefore is never cut and dry.
