Tamoxifen (TMX), sold under the brand name Nolvadex among others,
is a medication that is used to prevent breast cancer in women and
treat breast cancer in women and men.It is also being studied for
other types of cancer.It has been used for Albright syndrome.
Tamoxifen is typically taken daily by mouth for five years for
Serious side effects include a small increased risk of uterine
cancer, stroke, vision problems, and pulmonary embolism. Common
side effects include irregular periods, weight loss, and hot
flashes. It may cause harm to the baby if taken during pregnancy or
breastfeeding. It is a selective estrogen-receptor modulator
(SERM) that works both by decreasing factors that increase the
growth of breast cells and increasing factors that decrease the
growth of breast cells. It is of the triphenylethylene group.
Tamoxifen was discovered in 1967.It is on the World Health
Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the most important
medications needed in a basic health system.Tamoxifen is available
as a generic medication.The wholesale price in the developing world
is about 0.07 to 0.23 USD per day.In the United States it costs
about 2 USD a day.
Tamoxifen Citrate is a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM)
that was created in 1961 by ICI now known as AstraZenaca. There are
numerous brands including generic forms of Tamoxifen Citrate on the
market, but Nolvadex is the most well known. Often referred to as
an anti-estrogen, Tamoxifen Citrate is actually both an antagonist
and agonist. This means it will act as an anti-estrogen in certain
areas of the body while acting as an estrogen in other areas.
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 Functions & Traits
Tamoxifen Citrate is a SERM that acts as both antagonist and
agonist in relation to the estrogen hormone. It is an anti-estrogen
in that it binds to estrogen receptors in certain parts of the
body, particularly in the mammary tissue. This action prevents
estrogen from acting on its originally intended point of binding.
This makes Tamoxifen Citrate valuable to breast cancer patients as
breast cancer feeds off of estrogen. And it’s valuable to steroid
users as increased estrogen levels can bind to the mammary tissue
and lead to gynecomastia.
The relationship Tamoxifen Citrate has in being an anti-estrogen is
fairly straightforward and well understood by many, but it’s its
relationship to being an estrogen in other areas that’s surprising
to some. Tamoxifen Citrate acts as an estrogen on the liver. Liver
related estrogenic activity has been shown to improve
cardiovascular health, particularly as it relates to cholesterol.
This can be very advantageous for the bodybuilding steroid user as
most steroids have a negative impact on cholesterol levels.
Beyond its estrogen related activity Tamoxifen Citrate possesses
strong testosterone stimulating properties. The use of Tamoxifen
Citrate will stimulate the pituitary to increase its production of
Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
with a strong emphasis on LH. LH and FSH are the gonadotropins that
signal to the testicles to produce testosterone. Without LH and FSH
there is no testosterone production.
Effects of Tamoxifen Citrate
For the anabolic steroid user the positive effects of Tamoxifen
Citrate can be seen both during and post anabolic steroid use with
post use being primary. Anabolic steroids like Testosterone and
Nandrolone among others will increase the body’s serum estrogen
This occurs by the testosterone hormone converting to testosterone,
which happens due to it being metabolized by the aromatase enzyme.
Once aromatized you have more estrogen, and this can lead to
gynecomastia and water retention. It can also lead to high blood
pressure if water retention becomes severe. Tamoxifen Citrate does
not lower serum estrogen levels, but it will bind to the receptors
in the chest preventing the estrogen from binding. It will not do a
lot for water retention if that is an issue. It is also not enough
gynecomastia protection for all men, but that depends on how high
estrogen levels go as well as genetics.
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.
We then have the testosterone stimulating effects of Tamoxifen
Citrate. This is by far the most important effect for the anabolic
steroid user. When we use anabolic steroids we suppress our natural
testosterone production, and this will occur regardless of the
steroids used. Steroid use creates a negative feedback and tells
your pituitary to stop making LH and FSH. 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 something is then needed to jump start testosterone
production. It will occur on its own, but it will be slow and
Tamoxifen can both speed it up and make it more efficient.
Tamoxifen Citrate is introduced, LH and FSH levels go up and as a
result testosterone is produced.
PCT use that includes Tamoxifen Citrate or any SERM, for it to be
successful this assumes no prior low testosterone condition
existed. It also assumes no damage was done to the
Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) during use. If prior
low levels existed Tamoxifen Citrate won’t magically fix this. If
severe damage was done to the HPTA you will not recover and may be
in need of low testosterone treatment.
Many steroid users believe that a good PCT brings about full
recovery, but this is a false belief. A PCT that includes Tamoxifen
Citrate will stimulate recovery, but it will not end it. It will
still take several months for full recovery to occur, but it stands
a much better chance with PCT than without.
For the breast cancer patient the effects of Tamoxifen Citrate are
perhaps even more straightforward than they are for the anabolic
steroid user. Estrogen attaches and feeds the cancer, but Tamoxifen
Citrate prevents it from attaching and starves the cancer. This is
a simple yet effective means of treatment. This is not the only
drug used in treatment; commonly treatment will begin with an AI
and then will be switched to a SERM like Tamoxifen Citrate. It is
also sometimes used as a preventative measure in those that have a
strong family history of breast cancer.
Side Effects of Tamoxifen Citrate
Possible side effects of Tamoxifen Citrate do exist, but it is one
of the more well-tolerated SERM’s on the market. Most men will not
have an issue with this medication, although it is possible. Side
effects of Tamoxifen Citrate do appear to be more common in women,
but they are still not what we’d call “common.” The most common
side effects of Tamoxifen Citrate include:
-- Vaginal Itching, bleeding, discharge or discomfort
The above side effects of Tamoxifen Citrate are not extremely
common but possible. Other possible side effects of the SERM’s use
but less common than the above include:
Decreased White Blood Cell Count
Increased Triglyceride Levels
Women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant should not use
Tamoxifen Citrate or any SERM as use will potentially damage the
developing child and with strong probability.
Tamoxifen Citrate Administration
For the purpose of breast cancer treatment there are six Tamoxifen
Citrate plans that encompass both male and female treatment. In any
of the six plans doses normally fall in the 10-20mg twice per day
range. A full 40mg per day (20mg twice per day) is very common
during the first stage of Tamoxifen Citrate treatment. Many breast
cancer patients will also continue 10-20mg per day indefinitely
once the cancer is in remission in order to prevent it from coming
We then have the anabolic steroid user. For on cycle gynecomastia
prevention 10-20mg per day is the standard range. If this dosing
range does not help it is unlikely any dose will and AI’s should
strongly be considered. Some men are afraid to use AI’s because
they fear they might hinder their gains. It’s true you will hold
less water therefore weigh less, but water is not an actual gain.
Besides, would you rather weigh just a little less or have massive
and unattractive gynecomastia?
We’re then left with PCT use. Most 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 Clomiphene Citrate (Clomid). For a
full PCT outline please see How to Come off Steroids.
Availability of Tamoxifen Citrate
Tamoxifen Citrate is widely available worldwide and should not be a
very expensive medication. It is not a controlled substance but
does require a prescription in the U.S. Tamoxifen Citrate is
carried by most all retail and online pharmacies, and is also
carried by nearly all anabolic steroid suppliers. It is also a very
popular product through research chemical labs that sell
non-controlled items for research purposes. It is not a commonly
counterfeited item although some research labs do a poor job in
making a product that holds potency for an extended period of time,
but there are plenty of good ones as well.
Buy Tamoxifen Citrate Online – Warning
You can easily buy Tamoxifen Citrate online in both tablet and
liquid form. Both forms are taken orally. However, if you live in
the U.S. and make a purchase like this you are breaking the law if
it is done through a steroid supplier or any online pharmacy
without a prescription. Purchasing from a research lab online is
legal, but not for personal use. This is a bit of a gray area of
the law, but it does carry possible consequences should law
enforcement wish to make an issue out of it.
Tamoxifen Citrate Reviews
Of all the SERM’s on the market, and there are quite a few,
Tamoxifen Citrate is perhaps the most valuable and beneficial. For
the breast cancer patient it can almost be labeled as an imperative
medication; in fact, in many cases we can call it life saving or at
least a major part of an overall life saving plan. For the steroid
user, it’s really not the best thing since sliced bread when it
comes to on cycle use, but it can serve a p urpose for some.
It is during PCT that the steroid user will find this product
highly valuable. In fact, if the Nolvadex and Clomid combo cannot
be used and you could only pick one SERM for your PCT recovery,
undoubtedly Tamoxifen Citrate would be the way to go.
