Aromex by Alpha Pharma is an aromatase inhibitor containing the active substance Exemestane, which is used to reduce the amount of the oestrogen hormone in the body. Now, oestrogen is an important female hormone produced by the ovaries and adrenal glands. It performs many important bodily functions, including developing the female reproductive organs during puberty, preparing the breasts and uterus for pregnancy in adulthood, and maintaining cardiovascular and bone health.
However, in men, high levels of oestrogen can cause unwanted problems. During anabolic steroid use, some steroids convert testosterone into oestrogen through a process called aromatization. Therefore, when oestrogen levels rise after the use of anabolic steroids, men need a way to reduce these levels to avoid suffering the consequences. This is where Exemestane is used.
Effectiveness of Exemestane
For athletes using anabolic steroids, the most important question is which drug is best to be used during a cycle for effective prevention of estrogenic side effects, and what can be used during post-cycle therapy (PCT) for this purpose. Exemestane can be used both during the cycle and after it during the PCT. However, practice shows that the most effective method is the use of aromatase inhibitors during the cycle, while in the treatment of PCT, the most effective is the use of SERM drugs (for example, Clomiphene citrate) and Chorionic gonadotropin.
Use of Exemestane
Each person has individual characteristics, so pay attention first of all to your own well-being. Exemestane by Alpha Pharma is available as oral tablets that should be swallowed. Each tablet is produced to contain a dose of 25mg of Exemestane. It should be taken with meals (preferably after meals).
The dosage is calculated depending on the situation and the manifestation of side effects. For preventive measures, you need to start Exemestane in the second week of a steroid cycle at a dosage of 12.5mg (half a tablet) every other day. If you have the first signs of gynecomastia, you need to increase the dosage to 25mg per day. The effectiveness of the product directly depends on the actions of the athlete and compliance with all recommendations.
Exemestane side effects
Like all medicines, Exemestane tablets can cause side effects. Everyone responds differently to medications, and some have more side effects than others. However, the side effects of Exemestane are generally mild and well tolerated. They include:
- Decreased interest in sexual activity
- Irregular mood
- Thinning hair
- Difficulty falling asleep
- Decreased appetite
- High cholesterol
- Joint stiffness and pain, including carpal tunnel
If severe symptoms occur, we recommend that you temporarily stop taking Exemestane and try another type of aromatase inhibitor, such as Anastrozole or Letrozole. All three of the drugs mentioned can be bought in our online shop at a good price.
