If you buy Nolvadex online it may sometimes be listed as its proper pharmaceutical name Tamoxifen Citrate. Initially it was used to prevent breast tumours in women.
Nolvadex is the most well known and widely used Anti Estrogen. There's a good reason, it's affordable and effective when estrogen is already bonded to the estrogen receptors.
Nolvadex is not actually an anti-estrogen like arimidex which stops estrogen dead in its tracks, with Nolvadex we can see the effect is via the mechanism of estrogen receptor blockade of breast tissue. It can also be beneficial to the immune system and cholesterol levels. Nolvadex is also very useful at the end of a steroid course as even just 20mg standard dose can raise testosterone levels by approximately 150% of the level it was at the time Nolvadex was administered. Like Clomid, the half life of Nolvadex is relatively long enabling the user to implement a single daily dosing schedule.
Well its not a steroid so you would obviously use it along side strong testosterones, however some use Nolvadex along side other ancillary drugs such as Proviron which is an anti-estrogen. During a course of heavy Testosterones, Proviron would be used as an anti-estrogen, and also to lower SHBG to keep testosterone in free state. Aprroxinately 10-14 days after the last shot of long acting testosterone is administered many switch from Proviron to Nolvadex for a couple of weeks which as stated above a 20mg dose will help the immune system, cholesterol levels and raise natural testosterone in the fight against the catabolic effects when coming off the juice.
There is a whole list of side effects in the insert from a box of Nolvadex, however just think of the list of side effects when opening a tub of ibuprofen. My point is rare cases and usually harsh side effects are from dangerously high doses which is irrelevant in bodybuilding considering 20mg is all you need per day. The only drawback for some bodybuilders is a link to reduced gains due to Nolvadex's ability to reduce IGF-1 (insulin-like-growth-factor) but this has never happened to me personally but some react different to others. There are some rare reports of vision problems. All in all Nolvadex is an asset to bodybuilding.
Average Dosage: 10-30 mg/day.
