Anastrozole is an anti-estrogen preparation available in tablet form. Initially, anastrozole was developed as a breast cancer drug. However, in our days, in practice, the drug is practically not used. In sports, Anastrozol has gained immense popularity: it is used by athletes and fans of power sports. The drug helps to avoid gynecomastia, that is, the growth of the mammary glands, relieves edema and other negative side effects that often accompany the course of taking anabolic drugs.
Anastrozole has pronounced effects: only one milligram of active substance can lower the estradiol content in the bloodstream by 80%! Even Tamoxifen, which is very popular among bodybuilders, cannot be compared to Anastrozole for the strength of the effect. However, drugs have a different principle of action, so a comparison between them is unlikely to be correct.

How to use
Anastrozole is only recommended for experienced athletes: beginners should preferably be discarded. Tablets are used after the course of anabolic steroids. Anastrozole must be taken in two cases: with the appearance of serious side effects after taking steroids and before starting the course as a prophylaxis. After the course, a steroid is taken from 0.25 to 1 mg per day. Before the course, the dosage must be determined by a specialist.
You can take Anastrozole for two weeks – during this time the drug will have time to show its properties in full.
In order for the active substance to enter the bloodstream as quickly as possible, drink Anastrozole before meals, drinking it with plenty of water.
It is not recommended for female athletes to drink anastrozole. The drug can provoke sudden changes in the hormonal context, which can lead to unpredictable consequences for the female body.
What side effects can anastrozole receive?
Side effects of the drug are relatively rare. As a rule, they are associated with intolerance to the active ingredients or excess of the recommended dosage. Among the most frequent side effects, rapid fatigue, drowsiness, redness of the skin, headache, as well as various negative manifestations of the gastrointestinal tract (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.) can be identified.
From reception of Anastrozole it is necessary to refuse in case of presence of chronic diseases of cardiovascular system. This is due to the fact that the drug actively counteracts the side effects of taking steroids, but at the same time blocks the production of "good" cholesterol, which can lead to heart problems. For this reason, athletes who have cardiovascular disease should consult a doctor before taking Anastrozole or prefer drugs with a similar effect, but with a different mechanism of action on the body.
