Taking Arimidex to lower estrogen while taking Avodart for hairloss?

I am 27 and took propecia for a few years starting at 19.  It never worked for me, so I have been on Avodart (dutasteride) for the past four years.  It has completely stopped my hairloss.

Recently, lab tests indicated my test was 500 something, and my estrogen was like 47.  I have always have trouble with man boobs, I have no body hair except for pubes, I have thin wrists, I'm the "skinny fat," and I have no sex drive and problems getting hard erections recently. 

I was wondering if lowering my estrogen with Arimidex would help (cause I know it also raises test).  Also, has anyone taken Arimidex with Propecia/Avodart?  Is this okay and safe?  Will a doctor actually prescribe it?

Thanks.

The only advice that I will give you is to NOT mess with your hormones.

Check out this help forum and the stories for sufferers of side effects from Propecia http://www.propeciahelp.com/forum/

Seek help from a specialist.

^ I agree.  Finasteride has been known to cause problems for men, even after they stop taking it.  Dutasteride is a lot more potent then finasteride which is likely why is was never approved for hairloss in men.  If you are planning to continue on with the Dutasteride I would talk to a Doctor regarding your erection difficulties.  Be careful.

Good Luck.
