Arimixyl usage is appropriate when using substantial amounts of aromatizing steroids, or when one is prone to gynecomastia and using moderate amounts of such steroids.
Arimixyl works simple – it blocks conversion of aromatizible steroids to estrogen. Arimixyl is in a class of medications called nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitors.
