Anabolic steroid users, should always have some type of anti-estrogen on hand during, and after cycle. Anti-estrogens minimize several side effects that come with anabolic steroid use. These include water retention, gynecomastia, and testosterone shut down. The main anti-estrogens are arimidex, clomid, nolvadex, and HCG. There are others, but we only listed the top four. All of the steroid suppliers in our members section carry anti-estrogens.
Arimidex,over the last year, has started to really make a name for itself. Arimidex is one of the best anti-estrogens to use during a steroid cycle. With the addition of HCG and/or clomid, it makes a great post-cycle recovery regimen. Arimidex is an aromatase inhibitor, which not only prevents gynecomastia (bitch tits), it also minimizes water retention, and has been proven to increase natural testosterone production. At one time Zeneca Farma was the only company producing arimidex; at an extremely steep price. The average price for 28 tabs of 1 mg arimidex was between $250-$300 US, where a common dosage would be .5mg every other day. Today, there are a few companies which carry anastrozole, and these companies offer it at a more attractive price. Liquidex, being one company's brand, is actually in a liquid form. The average price for this arimdex is $100 for a 30ml bottle, 2.5 mg/ml.
Clomid is usually used in conjunction with arimidex or nolvadex post cycle to help restore natural testosterone production, as well as reducing risk of gynecomastia. In men, the application of clomid causes an elevation of follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone. As a result, natural testosterone production is also increased. A common recommendation for clomid is 100mg a day for 7 days, followed by 50mg a day for 14 days. The addition of HCG, will provide even better results. Average price for clomid ranges from $1-$2 per 50mg tab.
Nolvadex, has a similar use as arimidex. However, it does not reduce estrogen levels as many believe, it blocks estrogen from estrogen receptors. It is also used post-cycle, it will help prevent gynecomastia, when the testosterone/estrogen levels are lowered/raised. Nolvadex is often used with high dosages of testosterone, dianabol, anadrol and deca durabolin. Average street price for nolvadex ranges from $1.50-$2.50 per 20mg pill. Nolvadex is commonly used at 20mg a day, either post cycle, or when symptoms of gynecomastia appear. As with most anti-estrogens, they work well with other ant-estrogens. Nolvadex can be used with HCG and/or clomid for post cycle recover.
