    here you go:

    FEMARA

    Active Life: 2-4 days
    Drug Class: Aromatase inhibitor (Oral)
    Average Dose: 0.5 - 2.5 mg/day
    Acne: Yes
    Water Retention: No
    High Blood Pressure: May reduce bp when using aronatizable steroids
    Liver Toxic: Yes, dose dependant
    Decrease HPTA function: No

    Femara®(generic name is letrozole) is a new drug developed for the treatment of advanced breast cancer in women. Femara is the second in a new class of third-generation selective oral aromatase inhibitors.. It acts by blocking the enzyme aromatase, subsequently blocking the production of estrogen. Since many forms of breast cancer cells are stimulated by estrogen, it is hoped that by reducing amounts of estrogen in the body the progression of such a disease can be halted. This is the basic premise behind Nolvadex, except this drug blocks the action and not production of estrogen. The effects of Femara can be quite dramatic to say the least. A daily dose of one tablet (2.5 mg) can produce estrogen suppression greater than 80 % in treated patients. With the powerful effect this drug has on hormone levels, it is only to be used (clinically) by post-menopausal women whose disease has progressed following treatment with Nolvadex. Side effects like hot flushes and hair thinning can be present, and would no doubt be much more severe in pre-menopausal patients.

    For the steroid using male athlete, Femara shows great potential. Up to this point, drugs like Nolvadex and Proviron have been our weapons against excess estrogen. These drugs, especially in combination, do prove quite effective. But Femara appears able to do the job much more efficiently, and with less hassle. Its use is only now catching on, but early reports have been excellent. A single tablet daily, the same dose use clinically, seems to be all one needs for an exceptional effect (some even report excellent results with only 1/4 tablet daily). When used with strong, readily aromatizing androgens such as Dianabol or testosterone, gynecomastia and water retention can be effectively blocked. In combination with Propecia (finasteride), we have a great advance. With the one drug halting estrogen conversion and the other blocking 5-alpha reduction (testosterone, methyltestosterone and Halotestin only), related side effects can be effectively minimized. Here the strong androgen testosterone could theoretically provide incredible muscular growth, while at the same time being as tolerable as nandrolone. Additionally the quality of the muscle should be greater, the athlete appearing harder and much more defined without holding excess water.

    There are some concerns with using an aromatase inhibitor such as this during prolonged steroid treatment however. While it will effectively reduce estrogenic side effects, it will also block the beneficial properties of estrogen from becoming apparent (namely its effect on cholesterol values). Studies have clearly shown that when an aromatase inhibitor is used in conjunction with a steroid such as testosterone, suppression of HDL (good) cholesterol becomes much more pronounced. Apparently estrogen plays a role in minimizing the negative impact of steroid use. Since the estrogen receptor antagonist Nolvadex does not display an anti-estrogenic effect on cholesterol values, it is the preferred from of estrogen maintenance for those concerned with cardiovascular health.

    Femara has another principle drawback, namely the great price of this drug. Tablets can be quite costly with regular use, but it can ward off the side effects of strong androgens much better than Nolvadex and/or Proviron, making heavy cycles much more comfortable. As the number of countries manufacturing this drug increases, we may be able to look forward to a reduction in price. Privately compounded versions of "liquid Femara have also been formulated "for research purposes" and are currently circulating the black market. Generic tabs are also available and these two forms represent a very cost-effective alternative for buying the brand name drug.

          I like it better than arimidex myself. I only take half as much and hold 0 water.

            When you say half as much what do you mean by that, not mg vs mg do you?

                'Drol gave some good info there...I use letrozole and use 1/2 tab eod (sometimes e3d) and I absolutely love the stuff.

                Ive also used the liquid version (1mg/ml) and used a 1ml ED/EOD with success as well.

                Hope this helps..

                    Hmm...shut down? It shouldn't shut you down unless you stop taking it then you will get a big rebound of estrogen. It would be benificial to taper the dosage and switch to nolva.

                    Anyways, Femera works great. It is very strong....it keeps all gyno issues at bay....in fact I had a small lump under my nipple that seemingly dissipated with the use of femera.

                          A side effect of having TOO LITTLE estrogen is having your sex drive completely go to zero....Having too little estrogen is as bad as having too much....

                              I agree with ya bro...I just thought that you meant that it shut down Test Production....sex drive is a different story.

                              Everyone needs some estrogen for stuff like sex drive, cholesterol levels (HDL), and it even plays a part in building muscle.
