6 months. Doc wants me to take adex at .5mg every 4 days. I decided to try TRT without it. Don't want to be on an AI drug long term.
I've been on trt for 6 years. Almost the entire time, I've been on 160 mg cypionate, split into 2 doses per week. I didn't didnt want to be on anastrozole long term either, since I couldn't find any long term studies on it, with trt. With .8 mg cypionate, I take 1/4 pill of anastrozole, the day after my injection. This keeps my estradiol in range. Everyone is different, but 1/2 pill per week doesn't bother me, as far as long term. I guess I just look at the alternative. I'd have to really cut my trt dose, to basically a useless dose, if I want my estradiol to stay in range without an ai.
I tried cutting my trt to 100 mg cypionate per week, split into 2 doses, and I still needed an ai to keep estradiol in range.
Edit: I know everyone is different, but you may want to start at a lower dose of anastrozole/Arimidex. 1mg per week for 150mg of cypionate per week, may make your estradiol too low.
your cypionate dose of 150mg per week is basically the same as mine. Why not try splitting the dose, and inject every 3.5 days, like Saturday morning, and Tuesday evening? Then get a pill cutter, and cut the anastrozole into 1/4's and take 1/4 pill approximately 24 hours after each injection. In 6 years, I don't notice any ups and downs with my test levels, with twice a week injections.
