Is it safe to take arimidex (anastrozole) to boost testosterone levels?

Won't "boost" Arimidex (anastrozole) is an aromatase inhibitor, it blocks the production of estrogen. So, it won't boost testosterone (t), but can prevent existing t from being converted to estrogen.
Loaded Question. While this is possible in theory, it is an off-label use. Actually, it is waaaay off label. Since most physicians prefer to maintain their state medical licenses, few will endorse or rx Arimidex (anastrozole) to boost testosterone. If you are diagnosed as being testostone deficient {hypogonadism}, then the standard of care would be testosterone replacement therapy. The diagnosis is straight-forward.
No. Using a chemotheraputic medication for anything other rtthan chemo therapy is not advised. I would suggest you seek consultation if you need hormaone therapy and to get safe therapy. Arimidex (anastrozole) risk is too high for unwantd effects and is not indicated for this type of therapy.

Go see your doctor. You probably have too much Estradiol still & not enough testosterone. My concern is that you're cycling your hormones and not being monitored which is a very risky thing to do. Folks who really need extra t don't cycle their regimen. They just stick w/it. As dr. Geffner noted, you're risking your future fertility & testicular function. Read more...

Does taking Anastrozole as a male have an effect that mimics an increased testosterone level?

Yes - PED. Use of estrogen blocking agents is considered a form of performance enhancing drugs in men as purposeful reduction of estrogen can make pituitary to increase FSH & LH which then stimulates testes to produce more testosterone (and sperm). In fact, anastrozole, clomiphene & tamoxifen are used way off-label for just such a purpose but best only under supervision given potential side effects. Read more...
