THE MED ROUTE!?!?! +..:HOPE:..+
« on: May 26, 2005, 01:06:42 PM »
Anyone  every try Proviron, Arimidex, Clomiphene citrate, Tamoxifen, or Rebound XT all these substances clearly say reduce of gyn. LIKE>>>>> On cycle, Rebound XT is used as an anti-estrogen to prevent estrogen related side effects such as water retention and gyno. It also helps to combat the signs of existing gyno.>>> Nolvadex can aid in preventing edema, gynecomastia >> Clomid ( clomiphene citrate) also effective in reducing risk of gynecomastia.. >>>Arimidex is not a steroid. It is a tablet form anti-aromitase that is used by many body builders to help prevent bloating (edema) and Gynecomastia (bitch breast) associated with the use of testosterone and androgens.<< I stayed home today and woke up and looked in the mirror very depressed reading this gives me hope

Just be careful. Those are dangerous drugs and you could end up with a worse problem than gyno.

From what I understand those medications can be used to reduce glandular tissue by negating or interrupting estrogen production.  I believe that it's more effective at reducing recent or active glandular growth which is why anabolic steroid users take these drugs after coming off a cycle.  Those drugs are prescription stuff and should only be administered by a doc who knows what he's doing, like an endocrinologist.  Rebound XT is a "supplement" and not a medication.  No FDA regulation invoved; buyer beware.

Unquote

This is not true.

A) An endocrinologist would be very unlikely prescribe such medication on a permanent basis (the exception being proviron which would could be given permanently for testosterone deficiency/hypogonadism).

And

B) These types of medications are generally used for rectifying gynecomastia that has/is being caused by a temporary hormonal imbalance due to puberty so they would not need to be taken permanently.

Separately...

If a permanent hormonal imbalance is found to exist, say low testosterone (hypogonadism) then that would be medicated for the rest of their life with either testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), dihydrotestosterone or HCG.


But this would be a good thing not a bad thing as it would improve that person’s quality of life.

Bassplayer, I love the way you have bracketed  (pregnant dog breast) as though it is a medical definition ;D- very funny.

Then tell me where you live and I will find one for you that specializes in reproductive endocrinology.

Alternatively go to;

www.aace.com

Select the find an endocrinologist option from the left hand menu and find one yourself- remembering to only select an endocrinologist who lists reproductive endocrinology as an area of interest.

An endocrinologist will check you out, try and ascertain why you have gynecomastia and is at liberty to medicate IF that is the appropriate thing to do.

At the very least he should be able to advice you of your options.

If you go to see an endocrinologist ask for a copy of your own pathology for your own records and post your results here or pm me and I will give you the perspective of a patient with hypogonadism (me) who has seen many many pathology results.

That way you will have the best of both worlds the perspective of the endocrinologist and of a patient who lives with hypogonadism.

And

Tamoxifen is used to block the estro receptors in cancer patents(women with breast cancer).... when  they discontinue use the effect of the drug wares off depending on the half life.. the same story with arimidex and all the other ish

u dont just take tomox/arimidex or anything else for a period of time and the problem is fixed buddy
