Nolvadex - Tamoxifen Citrate Steroid
Nolvadex is the trade name for the drug Tamoxifen Citrate, a non-steroidal agent that demonstrates potent anti-estrogenic properties. This drug is classified as an estrogen agonist/antagonist that binds to estrogen receptors in various target tissues. Many forms of breast cancer are responsive to estrogen, so Tamoxifen Citrate is used to block its action in such cells.
Nolvadex only blocks the effect of estrogen that is present in the body. If it is removed at a time when estrogen levels are still unusually high, related side effects can quickly become a problem. Since HCG not only increases the production of testosterone but also enhances the rate of aromatization in the testes, anti-estrogens should not be discontinued until at least a couple of weeks after HCG is discontinued. Otherwise many unwanted side effects that were previously under control could resurface out of control.
Nolvadex Side Effects
When using Nolvadex to ward off the effects of estrogen during the cycle, it should not be removed until the user is confident that hormone levels are well under control. With a drug such as Sustanon, this may mean continuing it for several weeks after the last shot.
A typical daily dosage for men is in the range of 10 to 30mg, depending on the level of effect desired. It is advisable to begin with a low dosage and work up to avoid taking an unnecessary amount.
Women use Nolvadex in an effort to reduce the effect of their own endogenous estrogens. This can lower body fat concentrations, especially in stubborn areas like the hips and thighs. This is risky though because manipulating the effect of estrogen can become uncomfortable in women. Side effects including hot flashes, menstrual irregularities, and a variety of complications with the reproductive system are all possible.
Nolvadex is an estrogen agonist in the liver, capable of activating the estrogen receptor and mimicking the actions of this sex hormone in this region of the body. It can have a positive impact on HDL (good) cholesterol values, as does estrogen. Many use this drug to counter some of the negative consequences of steroid use in regards to cholesterol values and heart problems because steroids tend to suppress HDL and raise LDL levels.
This can allow an athlete to maintain a very favorable HDL/LDL cholesterol ratio in spite of using an injectable such as testosterone or nandrolone.
