Only estrogen: these medication inhibit the production of estrogen through blocking conversiton from testosterone. Are you taking testosterone supplements? If so they help prevent gynecomastia or breast enlargement. These drugs are mostly used in women with breast cancer, so your question is curious

What aroma is that??: Yes,and it cures baldness and will get rid of an annoying girlfriend.Well,actually,it just inhibits the conversion of testost to estrogens in your body cells (it works overtime in fat cells).Its relationship to 5-HIAA is sketchy at best(far as I know)and on blood lipids very complex and probably opposite what you think.No easy answers here,except: you gotta histamine problem?Take an antihistamine!
