Tamoxifen citrate (mainly known as Nolvadex) is a non-steroidal anti-estrogenic drug, used widely in clinical medicine. It is specifically a selective Estrogen-Receptor Modulator (SERM) of the triphenylethylene family, and posesses both estrogen agonist and antagonist properties. As such, it may act as an estrogen in some tissues while blocking the action of estrogen in others. In breast tissue tamoxifen citrate is a strong anti-estrogen, and as a result it is commonly used in the treatment of hormone-responsive breast cancer in women. In some cases it is even utilized as a preventive measure, taken by women with an extremely high familiar tendency for breast cancer. In male bodybuilders and athletes, tamoxifen citrate is commonly used to counter the side effects caused by elevated estrogens subsequent to the use of anabolic/androgenic steroids.
The primary worry among the athletes and bodybuilders is gynecomastia, or the very unsightly development of female breast tissue in men. This can be first noticed by the appearance of swelling or a small lump under the nipples. If left to progress, this can develop into a large hard-tissue gynecomastia that may be an irreversible occurrence without surgery. The estrogen can also lead to an increase in the level of water retained in the body, resulting in a notable loss of definition as the muscles begin to look smooth (even bloated) due to the retention of subcutaneous fluid. Fat storage may also be increased as estrogen levels rise in men. In fact, differences in the estrogen/androgen ratio are one of the reasons women have a higher body fat percentage, and different fat distribution (hips/thighs), than men.
Using Tamoxifen to avoid Gynecomastia, 10-20 mg / day during the whole cycle and PCT is enough. Important is to take Tamoxifen even 2 weeks longer than the normal PCT Phase to avoid a rebound effect because of the still in the bloodstream existing estrogenes.
Using Tamoxifen to treat an existing Gynecomastia, then the dosage should be 20-60mg/day according to the state of the existing gyno. Normally after 3 weeks the swelling should be gone.
Using Tamoxifen for PCT, one should take in the first week 60 mg / day as a frontload and the following weeks 20-30 mg / day.
