    Question Switching from aromasin to adex for bloat?

    Is it common to gain 7-10lbs of water weight after a week of starting my cycle below? First cycle I have ran in about 6 years so decided to just do test p only, just don't remember this happening in the past when I would cycle with prop....

    6'1
    195
    13-14% BF

    wks 1-8 150mg test p EOD

    Currently running aromasin at 25mg ED, minimal sodium in diet, diet is in check, drinking plenty of water.

    Considering switching to adex from aromasin for goal of reducing bloat, good idea?


    It seems most of my bloat is gathered around my waist and stomach and a bit in my shoulders, is that normal???

    What brand aromasin are you using? How much water are you drinking?

    Before you jump on dex try taking your stane twice a day (12.5mg x2) with fats. Dietary fats can increase the absorption rate of stane by 40%. It can take 8-10 days to reach stable serum levels and notice the effects. If you do decide to use dex then get it from ar-r the site sponsor. It's a solution so the solute will be uniformly distributed as opposed to tabs.

    For some reason aramosin doesn't work for me. I was taking 25mg am and another 25mg pm on 750 mg test e a week and my blood test showed e2 levels above range. I even got a lil gyno.

    So I switch to 0.5mg Adex eod and my e2 levels dropped dramatically. I still get bloated but my bloodwork showed my e2 was well within range.

    Lipids are pretty bad though......

    If your worried about bloat drink more water and less salt. Aramosin is a better AI. If blood work shows it's working stick with it bro.

    How much did your lipid profiles differ when switching AIs?

    Not sure how much but there all out of the correct areas. Some are low some are high. I think cholesterol is a 6.5 ??? Not sure exactly. But I'm taking allot of fish oil now. All my lipid levels were perfect before ADEX.

    1mg ADEX (1 whole tab) is stronger then 2 x 25mg tabs of aramosin in my opinion. But I would choose aramosin any day over ADEX if it worked on me.

    You will get a lot more out of a box of ADEX than a box of aramosin.... And there around the same price.
