Tamoxifen citrate Tamoxifen citrate, marketed under the trade name Tamoxifen (Nolvadex), is an orally active drug that belongs to a family of drugs known as selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs).
Just like Clomid (Clomiphene citrate). However, they are two different drugs.
In addition, SERMs are considered anti-estrogens, as are aromatase inhibitors (AIs). However, there is a huge difference in how SERMs and AIs work.
They are known for solving estrogen-related problems, but their mechanism of action is very different.
Whereas aromatase inhibitors - inhibit aromatization and therefore reduce overall estrogen levels, SERMs selectively bind to certain estrogen receptors. Therefore, they only block the action of the estrogen hormone.
Tamoxiplex (Nolvadex) in bodybuilding for the treatment of gynecomastia
The drug can be used as an anti-gyno, either to treat this condition or to prevent gyno during the cycle in men prone to gynecomastia.
The compound is used during the cycle with aromatizable (aromatizable) or also called wet steroids such as Testosterones (all esters), Nandrolones (all esters), Dianabol and many other steroids. Those that are converted to estrogen in the body.
Tamoxypex in bodybuilding is mostly used nowadays for its great effect on increasing LH levels and therefore the production of total testosterone. This is what helps users recover from anabolic steroid use.
This is why Tamoxifen Citrate - for bodybuilders is very popular for SCT plans. It is very common to use Nolvadex and Clomid in combination in PCT plans, less often just one of them separately.
Bodybuilders need PCT because steroid use causes their body to stop producing LH naturally, as your body gets signals that too much hormone is being produced.
When tamoxifen is used, it stimulates the hypothalamus to produce more protein hormones, gonadotropins. To do this, it blocks estrogen going to the pituitary gland, which is responsible for the hypothalamus. When you get more gonadotropins, it releases more LH and FSH.
So you get a huge spike in testosterone levels - which is very important for SCT plans.
As mentioned, very often Tamoxifen is used along with Clomiphene for SCT protocols. It starts when all the steroids are flushed out of the body. In bodybuilding it is either Tamoxifen or Clomid separately, but very often in combination.
The duration of PKT is 3 to 8 weeks (most often 4 weeks), and the dosage of Tamoxiplex varies between 10-40 mg per day. Start with a higher dose, then decrease it as your body gets more testosterone naturally.
