Nolvadex is the trade name for the drug Tamoxifen Citrate,
Nolvadex works very similarly to clomid. It’s an antagonist of the estrogen receptors to-which it binds itself preventing active estrogen from binding in its place. Unlike AI’s such as aromasin, letrozole, orarimidex, which actually reduce the flow of estrogen in the body, nolvadex merely blocks estrogen from the receptor. This means there is a greater chance of an estrogen rebound effect.
When gyno prone anabolic steroid users run aromatising compounds, such as testosterone or dianabol, they convert to estrogen. This can lead to puffy nipples, bloating, blood pressure, erectile dysfunction (ED) and other estrogen related sides. Nolvadex can prevent some estrogen-related side effects from occurring, and it can halt the growth of gynecomastia. However, in my opinion, using an AI is much more effective for overall estrogen control.
In practice, tamoxifen is best used to help boost LH and total testosterone. This will help you recover from a cycle, which makes it a popular choice for post cycle therapy (PCT). A clomiphene, tamoxifen combination is one of the best recovery options for most PCT regiments.
Tamoxifen Citrate Dosage
You should start with 10-20mg every other day at the most, and see how the dosage works for you. Make sure to run it as a part of a complete post cycle therapy.
Tamoxifen Citrate Half-Life
Tamoxifen Citrate has a 6 day half-life, but in different medical documents it’s shown between 5 and 7 days.
