    arimidex or aromasin ?

    Im currently taking 1mg arimidex pw.It seems to make my joint more dry.
    I read that aromasin is less harsh on dry joints.
    my question is do other find the same effect? And witch one do you prefer?

    I'm surprised you even need an ai with that dose.

    ^ if its 34 pg/dl , thats in the normal range i believe

    Big's right; no reason to be taking 1mg/day... that's too much even for a moderate cycle, ppl usually start at 0.25 mg /day

    i believe he's taking it once a week.. or at least 'per week' (pw=per week?)

    from what i understand, aromasin is more suppressive, which makes me think switching to that might actually cause more sore and/or stiff joints. maybe try lowering the dose a little bit, and/or switching to every day.. i don't think once a week is a good idea.. might cause rebounding? dunno.. just a stab in the dark.

    might not even need it at all, if it's causing that at such a low dose.. means you have low estrogen.

    Im taking 1mg a week dived mon,wen fri.
    I have a high shbg 61{20-60} and i understand lowering my estro will lower shbg.
    I waiting to get some proviron and give that a go.then maybe ill back off the arimidex .
    But the arimidex does seem to incres my libedo. so it must be lowering my shbg.

    depends on the dose for pct I'm taking .5mg arimidex right now ed, and my joints are slightly sore. Last PCT I took 25mg of aromasin and felt like a 100year old man, cut it in half and I was fine.
    Arimidex should work well for what you are using it for, you may need to lower the dose or drop it.
    Aromasin is a better choice for post cycle recovery, long term either works fine.
