Femara - Best Anti-Estrogen ??
Expensive..about the same as aromasin.....
but probably worth the dough......
I included some comments at the end from
a couple guys who tried it .
femara - Letrozole
Femara (letrozole tablets) is indicated for the treatment of advanced breast cancer in postmenopausal women with disease progression following antiestrogen therapy.
Aromatization happens mainly in the fatty tissues of the body. Letrozole works by inhibiting the aromatase enzyme and preventing this chemical change. This results in a reduction in the amount of oestrogen in the body. For this reason letrozole is known as an aromatase inhibitor
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Adult and Elderly Patients
The recommended dose of Femara (letrozole tablets) is one 2.5 mg tablet administered once a day, without regard to meals. Treatment with Femara should continue until tumor progression <is evident. No dose adjustment is required for elderly patients. Patients treated with Femara do not require glucocorticoid or mineralocorticoid replacement therapy.
(See CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY .) No dosage adjustment is required for patients with renal impairment if creatinine clearance is ³ 10 mL/ min.
(See CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY ) Although letrozole blood concentrations were modestly increased in subjects with moderate hepatic impairment due to cirrhosis no dosage adjustment is recommended for patients with mild- to- moderate hepatic impairment. Patients with severe impairment of liver function have not been studied. Because letrozole is eliminated almost exclusively by hepatic metabolism, patients with severe impairment of liver function should be dosed with caution.
2,5 mg tablets - dark yellow, film-coated, round, slightly biconvex, with beveled edges (imprinted with the letters FV on one side and CG on the other side). Packaged in HDPE bottles with a safety screw cap. Bottles of 30 tablets
NDC 0078-0249-15 .....Store at 25º C (77º F); excursions permitted to 15º C-30º C (59º F-86º F)
Some people may experience the following side effects in varying degrees:
Nausea (feeling of sickness) and vomiting -
These are uncommon and usually mild. Feelings of sickness can often be relieved by taking your tablet with food or milk or at night. Let your doctor know if any of these effects are troublesome as medication can usually be prescribed to control them.
Tiredness and headaches -
These are not common but some women may experience tiredness and headaches while taking Letrozole. It is important to get enough rest. Let your doctor know if you are getting headaches as medication can be prescribed to help.
Muscular aches and joint pain -
These are uncommon but if they occur let your doctor know as medication may be prescribed to help.
Hot flushes -
These are usually mild and may wear off after a period of time and become less of a problem. Drugs can sometimes be prescribed to counteract these flushes. Some people find it is helpful to cut down on tea, coffee, nicotine and alcohol. .
Hair thinning -
Some women notice their hair is thinner while taking Letrozole. This is usually mild and goes back to normal at the end of treatment.
Loss of Sex Drive-
There is some anecdotal evidence that Femara will REVERSE existing GYNO !
Letrozole has a tendency to increase IGF levels
where most anti-e's decrease them.
Perhaps the decrease in IGFs seen with most
anti-e's explains why some feel they decrease cycle results.
If this is the case, then letrozole may be a better candidate
for AS users than anastrozole.

"in my opinion Femara is about 5-10 times better than arimidex. I have used it and can't stop using it. It has taken my physique from average bodybuilder using a little roids here and there to truly elite. This stuff is a real blessing, I am almost afraid to talk about how great it is in fear of jinxsing myself. I got on board with the aromasin craze, but let me tell you, I tried the stuff and in fact it aint that great in reality, femara is in reality the absolute top shit. With aromasin, you need really high dosages to see it work good, like 4-6 tablets a day, that makes the price rediculous, and it needs to be taken sometimes twice a day. Also, it gives you real bad pimples, worse than anything. Femara on the other hand mg/mg is more potent than arimidex, and the beauty is instead of getting 1mg tablets you get 2.5mg tablets. It was orignially thought that Arimidex was so powerful, anything more would be overkill. However with bodybuilding dosage of testostrerone, this turnd out not to be true. THat is why it is slower to catch on than arimidex. But, trust me once you try it you will be sold. I had real bafd lower body fat from running to much testosterone. I started the femara and just watched the stuff melt away day by day, same with the small amount of gyno under my chest I had lived with for about a year +.
If you want specifics, femara is best because it not only eliminates estradiol and estrone but also estrone sulfat, something armidex doesn't really touch for some reason. Morte importantly, femara gets inside the fat cells where as arimdex just floats around in the blood stream. As we all know the aromatase inside the fat cells can be the worst kind, the estrogen made there is longferlived, has trouble getting into general circulation where it can be broken down by the liver and also has some of the most unsightly effects of estrogen, namely more fat, and even worse in areas where it is only appropriate in women. GET THE STUFF AND THANK YOUR LUCKY STARS FOR IT! Only problem I saw with itis that there is some estrogen rebound when you stop it. You have to taper the stuff slowly over a week orso and make sure you have normal levels of Testosterone(and no other aromatiseable androgens) in your blood when you come off. Also, the stuff is real bad on your cholesterol."
"Aromasin is also great, although I see it has coming in second place just behind Femara mainly because the dosages needed to see it work make it extremely cost prohibitive. It isn't very good at one 25mg pill per day but at 100-200mg/day it does wonders. At these dosages, it give about 3-5 times the protection that arimidex gives in my estimation and slightly more protection than femara does. Also, there is a definate mood boosting effect that this dose of aromasin gives. This is probably due to its structural affinity to androstenediol which is know to produce enhanced mood."

" I have recently tried both femara and aromasin for good extended periods of time and here is what I have found. Femara rocks. It blows arimidex away. I used 5mg/day and was able to get rid of a slight case of gyno I had had for about 15 months. It was amazing. Also, I was able to use, what was for me, dosages of aromatiseable steroids that I would have not been able to use with arimidex. "
Good info bro . Thanks
Didn't know much about 'Femara' (still don't) but I enjoyed the article.
