Exemestane is a third-generation steroid aromatase inhibitor, similar in structure to androstenedione. The drug is a crystalline powder of white or white with a yellow tone color. Exemestane inhibits aromatase and prevents estrogen formation. It also has the ability to suppress estrogen, without having an effect on the synthesis of cortisol and aldosterone in the adrenal glands. In medicine, the drug is used in breast cancer in postmenopausal women.
Athletes use Exemestane to block the side effects caused by taking steroids. Typically, these effects manifest as gynecomastia, water retention and fat gain. In some cases, aromatase inhibitors reduce body fat and improve muscle imaging.
But there is a downside to the use of aromatase inhibitors. Exemestane perfectly inhibits estrogenic side effects, but also blocks the healthy properties of estrogen and eliminates good cholesterol.
To combat the side effects of androgenic steroids, an individual dosage of Exemestane ranges from 15 to 25 mg per day.
When using this drug, the following side effects are possible: fatigue, dizziness, pain in the head, poor sleep, depression, nausea, lack of appetite, constipation, acne, excessive sweating, hair loss and low concentration of lymphocytes in the blood.
