Tamoxifen Citrate is a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM), often referred to as an anti-estrogen. It acts as an anti-estrogen in certain areas of your body while acting as an estrogen in other areas. Even though it is used by a wide majority of anabolic steroid users, It is also used to help with estrogenic related side effects. It is most commonly used after a the end of a Steroid Cycle. During Post Cycle Therapy (PCT). Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) is the 3-6 week period following steroid use implemented to help with natural testosterone production.
Effects Of Nolvadex (Tamoxifen)
Tamoxifen Citrate prevents estrogen from binding. It won’t help with water retention or gynecomastia for all men, but that also depends on how high estrogen levels go as well as genetics. There has been some talk of Nolvadex reversing Gynecomastia in men, although clinical studies suggest once gynecomastia is induced it is very difficult to reverse. Most body builders will experience Gynocomastia at some point in their career, and most will undergo surgery. If more or stronger protection is needed, Aromatase Inhibitors (AI’s) are recommended. AI’s are anti-estrogens that inhibit aromatase activity and lower serum estrogen levels.
Tamoxifen has severe testosterone stimulating effects. When we use anabolic steroids, we suppress our natural testosterone production, and this will occur regardless of the steroids used. This is why almost all steroid cycles include exogenous testosterone so that the negative feedback doesn’t cause a low testosterone level. Once steroid use is complete, Tamoxifen can help speed up the testosterone production.
It is very important to note that anti-estrogen use may slightly reduce gains made during a steroid cycle, as many androgenic/anabolic steroids seem to exhibit their most powerful anabolic effects when accompanied by a sufficient level of estrogen (Google ‘Estrogen Aromatization’). This may be one of the reasons why gains made with a strong aromatizable androgen for example like testosterone, are usually more pronounced than of those achieved with anabolic steroids that effectively aromatizes to a lower (or no) degree. Therefore, it is usually advised to identify a specific need for tamoxifen citrate before committing to its use during a steroid cycle. Many people do in fact, find the use of an anti-estrogen unnecessary – even when utilizing problematic compounds such as testosterone or methandrostenolone. Others do however find they are troubled not just by water retention but also gynecomastia even with milder (less estrogenic) drugs like Deca-Durabolin and Equipoise (Boldenone). The estrogenic response to steroid use is very individual and may be influenced by other various factors such as age and body fat percentage (adipose tissue is a primary site of aromatization).
For on cycle gynecomastia prevention, 10-20mg per day is the standard dosage range. If this dosing range does not help at all, it is unlikely any dose will, and Aromatase Inhibitors (AI’s) should then strongly be considered.
Most Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plans will begin with Tamoxifen Citrate doses of 40mg per day and will continue at this dose for 2-3 weeks. The dose will then be reduced to 20mg per day and will continue at this dose for 2-3 weeks. For a proper PCT it will often include another SERM, Clomid and potentially Arimidex at the very start of your PCT.
