    Why would anastrozole worsen acne? Shouldn't it reduce it?

    I've been using tren/test and have mild acne with the majority of it on my back. I've been taking an AI (anastrozole) to combat this, but higher doses seem to actually worsen the acne. Why would this be? Shouldn't it be the other way around?

    The acne seems to reduce the most if I do something like take .5mg every three days, but with higher doses I see immediate additional acne on my back. I'm curious as to why this is. (IIRC, stevesmi posted something on this topic back in the day on Elite Fitness?)

    If anastrozole doesn't work, what instead would be a good remedy for acne while on cycle?

    Arimidex (anastrozole) is not a remedy for acne, that's a misconception I've seen a few times. While there is some correlation, it's by far not a remedy. I suggest you use a moderate arimidex dosage with facial anti-acne cleansers and moisturizers.

    The explanation I heard was that acne is due to increases of estrogen / hormonal fluctuation along these lines, which anastrozole is supposed to take care of. Obviously this isn't universally the case.

    I'm interested if anyone has any experiences with hormonal solutions to acne other than arimidex.
