Anastrozole is a medication that is used to treat hormone receptor-positive breast cancer in postmenopausal women. In most cases, Anastrozole is taken daily for five years, although some women may take it for a shorter period. Anastrozole is usually taken in addition to other medications.
Anastrozole may also be used illegally by bodybuilders to reduce side effects caused by high estrogen levels that occur from the aromatization of anabolic steroids. The usual dosage is 0.5mg twice a week starting from week two of the anabolic steroid cycle.
Recommended use with any anabolics that aromatize; a great way to reduce side effects and minimise estrogen presence in the body.
