Battling Gynecomastia

With regards to gynecomastia, just curious if anyone has looked into or tried using any medications which compete with the excess estradiol produced while taking finas / dutas / spiro, at the receptor site in male breast tissue.

If you have tried them, what have your results been?

If you are thinking about it, what do you know?

Such meds include…

• Anti-estrogen medications, selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM), such as

	afimoxifene
	arzoxifene
	bazedoxifene
	clomifene
	lasofoxifene 
	ormeloxifene
	raloxifene
	tamoxifen
	toremifene

• Aromatase inhibitors, such as

	Letrozole
	Anastrozole
	Exemestane

I don’t take any of the medications you discussed, but I do take Chrysin, Piperine, Zinc and some other products referred to in the article above as aromatase inhibitors and that have an impact on SHBG.

I prefer not to name any particular supplements I take because I am not a fan of pushing particular products, but I take a product that has all this stuff in it. In other words, I am taking the natural route in this case. I am doing so in order to offset possible problems with the dutasteride that I apply topically.

To the aromatase inhibitor list you can add testolactone also.

Medications induced gynecomastia is typically painful.

I would like to know how many of you have painful gynecomastia.

I had gyno 2 1/2 years ago from avodart. Arimidex (anastrozole) alleviated the soreness and resolved the problem partially. I still have a puffy nipples. I may try a little nolvadex soon. Iknow it is a long shot (2 years 1/2 later)…
What should my dosage be?

Nolvadex can prevent gynecomastia and to some extent reverse it.
But trying it after 2and 1/2 years, I dont think it would be of much use. By now fibrous tissue would have formed and I dont think it is reversible with medicines.

Tamoxifen completely reversed my gyno last year . It has now returned so im using it again. 20mg per day

How long did you have gynecomastia before you started taking Tamoxifen?

not long . 2 months maybe. It wasnt that severe.

If the duration is less, the gyno will disappear on its own if you stop taking the offending drug . Medicines like Tamoxifen can work during this phase.

But if gyno is present for a long time fibrous tissue forms making it irreversible. In that case surgery is the only option.
