(4) SCHEDULE IV.--A substance in Schedule IV has a low potential for abuse relative to the substances in Schedule III and has a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, and abuse of the substance may lead to limited physical or psychological dependence relative to the substances in Schedule III. Unless specifically excepted or unless listed in another schedule, any material, compound, mixture, or preparation which contains any quantity of the following substances, including its salts, isomers, and salts of isomers whenever the existence of such salts, isomers, and salts of isomers is possible within the specific chemical designation, are controlled in Schedule IV:
Side effects resulting from the action of estrogen are mild in nature. Yet it does aromatize and with increasing dose aromatization occurs more and more. But it can be said that the estrogenic activity of this substance is so low, that it brings more benefits in the context of improving anabolic effects than disadvantages.
Androgenic side effects are still lower than the estrogenic. Its conversion in the body to dihydroboldenone is completely negligible (dihydroboldenone is 5 times more anabolic than testosterone), so hair loss and acne are rarely mentioned.
Currently taking anastrozole three times a week (1/2 mg per dose) to reduce estradiol, elevated due to twice weekly test injections of T – cypionate. Since starting TRT, I’ve had a real problem sleeping, or more accurately, waking up after about four hours and not being able to return to sleep. My doc doesn’t think it has anything to do with either drug, but I see sleep problems is listed as a possible side effect for the anastrozole. Can I directly substitute the Red pct for the anastrozole and if so, is there any feedback on the effect is has on sleep?
(My T level is 1140, using bi-weekly injections of .2 ml each.)
