Tamoxifen Citrate Quick Details:
Tamoxifen Citrate has been used medically for decades and has been highly successful in breast cancer treatment, specifically hormone-responsive breast cancer. It is also a medication that is used by many anabolic steroid users, but it is not a steroid. This is a drug steroid users will sometimes use during steroid use to help with estrogenic related side effects brought on by specific steroids. However, it is most commonly used during Post Cycle Therapy (PCT). PCT is the 3-6 week period following steroid use that is implemented in order to help with natural testosterone production that is suppressed during anabolic steroid use.
Tamoxifen Citrate Use in bodybuilding:
In the late 80′s, steroid guru Dan Duchaine speculated that nolvadex could be used to help with gynecomastia. Since that time, it has become popular as anti-gynecomastia treatment and for on-cycle use in guys who are gyno prone.
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.
Nolvadex vs. Clomid:
Milligram for milligram, nolvadex is far stronger than clomid. They are similar in that they are both SERMs, and simply prevent the estrogen from binding to the receptors where it can cause a problem. Neither are aromatase inhibitors. It terms of bodybuilding, it is up to the user to decide which one they prefer through experience. I found a combination of the two (2) drugs is the safest bet for PCT. However, for gynecomastia treatment, tamoxifen is a far better option.
