Nolvadex 20mg 50 Capsules Heat Sealed Tamper Proof Bottle


Nolvadex (Tamoxifen)

Nolvadex (Tamoxifen) is one of the oldest and most popular selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERM’s) in the world. Tamoxifen Citrate was developed in 1961 by Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) under the trade name Nolvadex. Later, AstraZeneca purchased ICI. Tamoxifen can be used to treat a large amount of dysfunctions, that’s why it was included in the World Health Organization’s list of essential medications. Nolvadex is also widely used by androgenic anabolic steroid users.

The drug was created to treat hormone-responsive breast cancer, then it turned out that it also can be used to prevent breast cancer. Nolvadex also can be used to treat women’s infertility, however studies have shown less effective results than from Clomid (Clomiphene).

In bodybuilding Tamoxifen can be used for two goals. The first option is as an anti-estrogen during an androgenic anabolic steroid cycle in order to prevent estrogen related side effects such as gynecomastia, bloating, high blood pressure, etc. However, similar to the case with Clomid (Clomiphene), I believe that there are more effective drugs such as Anastrozole or Proviron to prevent estrogenic side effects. The second most beneficial option is going through Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) in order to boost the Luteinizing Hormone and testosterone level.

Effects of Nolvadex (Tamoxifen) in bodybuilding

Tamoxifen is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) with both estrogen agonist and antagonist properties. For the androgenic anabolic steroid users, one of the desired effects is in the prevention of gynecomastia. Tamoxifen also reduces other estrogenic side effects like water retention and blood pressure but not significantly. That’s why I recommend using other drugs to reduce the estradiol level like Anastrozole and Proviron, however Nolvadex can be used for a weak cycle and it has less side effects. Additionally, Nolvadex has a positive impact on cholesterol levels.

The most valuable effect of Nolvadex is boosting the testosterone level for Post Cycle Therapy (PCT). During the cycle your body stops producing its own testosterone because it realizes there are too many hormones. The rate of suppression depends on the steroid cycle, the more advanced the cycle the worse your natural testosterone level will be. Once the cycle is done the natural testosterone production will start slowly recovering again. However, after you’ve finished the cycle your natural testosterone level will be extremely low and it will take time to recover naturally.

No one, especially bodybuilders, would want to stay in a low testosterone condition because it can lead to high body fat, loss of muscles, etc.

Most athletes have a post cycle therapy plan in order to recover their testosterone level faster. Nolvadex one of the medications that is very effective in helping to recover the testosterone level. Nolvadex stimulates the higher release of both luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone. When the body indicates a rise in luteinizing hormone (LH) it starts producing testosterone. That helps in maintaining a higher testosterone level until your natural testosterone has completely recovered.


In bodybuilding, for the purposes of post cycle therapy, your dosage should depend on the cycle. If the cycle was short (6-8 weeks) with one steroid or small steroids dosages you should use 20 milligrams for 14 days. If your cycle was advanced, the dosage of Nolvadex can be up to 50 milligrams per day for 6 weeks with gradually decreasing dosages. Also you can use a  combination Nolvadex (Tamoxifen) with Clomid (Clomiphene) after advanced cycles.

The same as with Clomid it’s very important to start using Tamoxifen timely. After oral only cycles like Turinabol, Winstrol and Dianabol you should start using Nolvadex a day after your  cycle is completed. If a cycle contains short duration esters, begin using Nolvadex 3 days after the cycle. If a cycle includes long lasting esters you should wait 14 days before using Nolvadex.

For the purpose of decreasing estrogenic side effects during an androgenic anabolic steroid cycle, the optimal dosage is from 10 to 20 milligrams per day. If this dosage does not help to protect from gynecomastia you should consider using aromatase inhibitors such as Anastrozole or Proviron.
