    Timing of AI?

    My current schedule looks like this;

    Tue - 250 iu HCG
    Wed - 250 iu HCG
    Thu - 160 mg Test Cyp
    Fri - .5 mg Arimidex

    Is that pretty normal timing, or do some people take a lower dose of AI more often?

    Just not feeling great lately; feeling emotional at sad commercials, can't sleep, irritable. Wanting to try something different and then have some more BW done.

    160mg is a hefty dose for TRT.
    IF BW shows it is OK I would still do 80mg two times per week.
    Arimidex should be taken EOD or E3D.

    I would try something more like....
    Sun-80mg test, .25mg Arimidex
    Tues- HCG 250iu

    Wed night- 80mg test, .25mg Arimidex
    Fri- HCG 250iu

    IMHO-
    for most people. TRT shouldn't require an AI.
    You would probably be better served doing 50mg twice a week with no AI.

    Think about it this way, does a healthy man in his 20s need an AI to keep his estrogen in check...

    When I was healthy and in my 20s, I didn't take an AI

    Dfwo, my schedule is identical to yours, different days but identical. Personally I would get fresh blood work done before I tweaked anything. You could cut your amount lower but without knowing exactly where you are this could backfire.

    Good point, I've already ordered the test and I'll have blood drawn next week

    I was just wondering what some other people's schedules were like. 2x week versus once, etc.

    my dosages are virtually the same , albeit with adjustments - but im dialled in and serum levels optimised.

    this is what i do.

    Tues pm, Sat am- 75 mg test E (0.3 IU- 250mg/ml)
    Tues pm, Sat am- 1/4 tab of anastrozole (invest in a pill cutter)
    NO hcg - BUT ID LIKE TO AT SOME STAGE

    pregnenolone and DHEA daily -When i remember to take them.
    Vitamin D3- 5000iu daily ( leave them in the car )

    E levels are in the lower quarter of the range.
