Would like to know if anyone is taking Dr. D's supplement called Aromastat and what are you taking it for?

I am post menopausal and have a very high family history of breast cancer. I am taking bio-identical hormones formulated for me through a compounding pharmacy (estriol, progesterone, and testosterone) all of which I am deficient in.

I really like the idea that Aromastat protects against breast cancer and would like to take it along with my BHRT. Just wondering if it is a good idea to take both? Any thoughts?

Honestly, I would just go with Arimidex. Herbal aromatase inhibitors work very poorly. Studies show they are ineffective.

Not all drugs are bad! Arimidex has a great safety profile - especially at lose doses.

Arimidex is drug designed for women who have HAD breast cancer, not a drug someone would take with a history of breast cancer in their family...and it has plenty of side effects.

if you have issues in your family about breatcancer...sorry I wouldn't take any hormons then .... :-/

I often recommended aromastat for  all b-types after chemo and other cancer therapies with great results....can't deny the combination works !!!

Arimidex and other products shouldn't be recommended as a sort of prevention...a def. no! Only if the status of a cancer is really detected and hormonal related!

<the bodies responses sometimes are not predictable at all!

Wish you all the best :D

It is not only used for breast cancer. It's an aromatase inhibitor - which has many functions.
