Estrogen inhibitors such as 6 oxo or others are they safe for an 18 year old?

Err firstl why are you considering this? Second if you're 18 all steroids of any sort should be avoided unless prescribed by your doctor for specific reasons.
Aromatase inhibitors are used in some growth disorders to prevent growth plate closure e.g. delayed puberty (where there is lack of growth spurt due to low test/estrogen levels)
Lay off this stuff, if you have to ask this question anyway you're not ready and you have a load of research to do. Wait until you're 21 at least, and always consult a doctor!
Just an intro to it, note the bottom no long term studies have been undertaken to ensure its safety
"5. What are the side effects of 6-OXO?
The side effects of 6-OXO are those that can be expected from increased testosterone (and DHT) production. The most common complaint is acne (although this also shows that the product is working). Increased sex drive is also common. With long-term use, risk of BPH (prostate enlargement) and male pattern baldness may be increased, and the possibility of these occuring may be reduced by concurrent use of finasteride (propecia, proscar) or, in the case of BPH, saw palmetto. "
"6-OXO is the most effective PCT agent that can be legally sold as a supplement. By inhibiting estrogen production, the HPTA is signalled to increase testosterone levels to compensate – in other words, 6-OXO inhibits one of the negative feedback signals that decreases the signalling of testosterone production. This allows for faster restoration of natural testosterone levels, in addition to a lowering of estrogen levels which may be high post-cycle (depending on the prohormone/steroid used). Still, 6-OXO isn't perfect. Recovery of LH (recall that this is the signal for testosterone production) is not the only issue post-cycle, especially if testicular atrophy has occured. Also, if the steroid/prohormone used does not aromatise to estrogen, estrogen levels will be low to begin with (because if natural testosterone production is halted, natural estrogen production is decreased as well), in which case an aromatase inhibitor will presumably have less of an effect. Nevertheless, 6-OXO is still one of the best options out there for PCT."

i know its tempting but these forms of hormonal supplements are unsafe and in many cases and useless as we are producing the most test we will ever produce in our lives as teenagers
