Anastrozole is an anti-estrogen preparation that is available in the form of tablets. Initially, anastrozole was developed as a medicine for breast cancer. However, in our day in practice, the drug is practically not used. In sport, Anastrozol has gained immense popularity: it is used by athletes and fans of power sports. The drug helps to avoid gynecomastia, that is, the growth of the mammary glands, relieves edema and other side negative effects that often accompany the course of taking anabolic.
Anastrozole has pronounced effects: only one milligram of active substance can lower the content in the bloodstream of estradiol by 80%! Even Tamoxifen, which is quite popular with bodybuilders, can not be compared with Anastrozole for the strength of the effect. However, the drugs have a different principle of action, so a comparison between them is unlikely to be correct.
Side effects of Anastrozole include:
- polymorphic erythema;
- allergic reactions;
- nausea and vomiting;
- stomach upset;
- rash on the skin.
Negative reactions are possible in cases of overdose or with an individual intolerance of the active substance.
