• Exemestane: Uses, Side Effects and Common Brands

  • Exemestane is a synthetic agent belonging to the class of aromatase inhibitors, which has found wide application among athletes involved in bodybuilding. It has become popular in certain circles due to its ability to suppress the negative estrogenic effects of anabolic steroids on the body, lowering the degree of estradiol (female sex hormone) and increasing the level of gonadotropic and male sex hormones. For most anabolics and androgens, the ability to aromatize is characteristic, which ultimately can lead to the emergence and progression of such negative phenomena as gynecomastia and water retention in high quantities, which leads to an increase in blood pressure.

    Exemestane was first developed in the laboratories of the pharmaceutical company Upjohn and in the early 2000s appeared on the world market under the brand name Aromasin.

    Like most other representatives of antiestrogens, this drug was originally used in the field of medicine as a medicine used in treatment of breast cancer during menopause among females.

    Nevertheless, today it enjoys no less popularity in bodybuilding. Its effect on body is similar to the mechanism of work of the most popular aromatase inhibitors Letrozole and Anastrozole.

    As with original version, this drug is available in the form of tablets for oral administration with a universal concentration of the active substance 25 mg per unit. Currently, many global pharmaceutical holdings under the same brand name are engaged in its production (only prices differ).
