For the anabolic steroid user, the effects of Anastrozole are greatly appreciated in its ability to protect against estrogenic related side effects.
By including Anastrozole in an anabolic steroid cycle that contains aromatizing steroids, the individual can protect against gynecomastia and water retention. This will also protect against high blood pressure. Some steroids can still cause high blood pressure without water retention, but heavy excess water retention is the number one culprit of high blood pressure among anabolic steroid users. Without question, AI’s like Anastrozole are the most effective anti-estrogens for combating estrogenic related side effects.
As a testosterone stimulating compound, Anastrozole can be appealing for low testosterone treatment plans and for Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) for anabolic steroid users. In the case of low testosterone treatment, it’s often not enough. However, it can still be beneficial in conjunction with exogenous testosterone therapy in protecting against estrogenic side effects. As for PCT use, some will attempt it and it can have a positive effect.
