Anastrozol is the newest stuff created to treat the women breast cancer. Arimidex is the first drug of the new type from the third generation of the oral drugs to slow down the aromatisation process. It blocks the enzymes participating in the aromatisation, gradually blocking the estrogen production in the body.
Since the breast cancer cells in major cases are stimulated by the estrogens, it is believed that by reducing the concentration of the estrogens in the body you can slow down the carcinoma growth. This is the main prerequisite to administrate it after Nolvadex in addition to the fact that it blocks the estrogens effect instead of the production of it. Anastrozol effect can be rather effect. Intake of 1 pill (1 mg) per day can lead to supression of the estrogen production by 80%. For this strong effect of the stuff on the hormones level in th ebody, only women in postmenopause can take it if their disease aggravates after Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate). Such intake is allowed only under the medical observation or direclt at the hospital. In this case such side effects as hairs shedding and hot flashes can emerge and undoubtedly the side effects will be stronger for the women in the pre-menopause period.
For male steroid users Anastrozol is of special interest. Till nowadays Nolvadex and Proviron were deemed the main drug to resist the estrogens excess in the body. The effect of these drugs, expecially if taken together, is highly resultive. But later it was found out that Anastrozol has the same effect and is even more resultive. The work of this stuff is under study now but the first researches give encouraging results. One pill per day is enough to achieve great results. Taking Anastrozol in combination with the strong androgens easy undergoing the aromatisation like Methandrostenolone or testosterone you can avoid gynecomastia and water retention in the body. Besides the quality of the muscle mass is improving a lot and the appearance of them is more attractive (muscles become more expressive and rigid without excess water).
However there are certain peculiarities for the intake of the drugs retarding the aromatisation processes and namely during the long steroid therapy. Such aromatisation retardant can considerably reduce the display of the estrogen side effects and can also block the positive effect of estrogens and namely the impact of the estrogens on the cholesterine level. Researches in this sphere testify that the usage of the aromatiation retardant in combination with such steroids like testosterone the suppression of the high-density lipoprotein (healthy) cholesterine is evident. Nolvadex proved to have no anti-estrogen effect on the cholesterine level. Consequently this stuff fits better to keep the estrogen level regular and can be recommended for usage by the people with cardiovascular diseases.
Anastrozol has another significant disadvantage - the high price for this drug. It is obvious the price for the auxiliary drugs can be much higher than the cost of the steroids as such, which is no happy news for the athletes-fans. Athletes-professionals on the contrary treat this situation well enough. Anastrozol can reduce the development of the side effects from usage of the strong androgens in a better manner than Nolvadex or/and Provirone as it can ease the state of the body during the "hard" cycles.
