Novo-pharm Nolvadex - Tamoxifen Citrate General Description
Nolvadex (also called tamoxifen) is a sex hormone group drug medication. It is used as a form of health protection in bodybuilding, not to produce anabolic effects. Nolvadex is not an anabolic drug, but is generally used for:
• anabolic-androgenic steroid cycles as an auxiliary drug to prevent the manifestation of adverse reactions;
• PCT to restore the regular functioning of the human body.
The drug was first used in medicine to treat cancers of the mammary gland. It is now used in sports as androgenic-anabolic medications increase the level of female sex hormones (estrogens), leading to reversion of the female type such as gynecomastia (breast growth in males, obesity of the female type, excessive retention of water). The initiation of gynecomastia in athletes is quite easy to determine – there is a kind of pain in the general area of the mammary glands, itching around the nipples, noticeable swelling in the skin and even potential clear discharge.
Novo-pharm Nolvadex - Tamoxifen Citrate Benefits
Nolvadex is part of the group of non-steroid antiestrogens suppressing the receptors of estrogen. The primary activity of the drug includes restoring the concentration of the primary male sex hormone in the body while increasing the levels of estrogen. Athletes may use Novo-pharm Nolvadex to remove excess fat deposits when on a low-calorie diet, increase muscle mass development and stop the already observable adverse reactions associated with steroids. The main effects of the use of the drug are:
• restored endogenous testosterone production;
• blocked estrogen activity throughout the body, including hypothalamus and pituitary gland, not only helps to restore male hormone development, but also prevents fluid retention, swelling, and minimizes setbacks;
• increased amount of high-density cholesterol in the bloodstream – the accumulation of "good" cholesterol over "bad" cholesterol reduces the likelihood of cardiovascular diseases that often arise in competitive athletes.
Novo-pharm Nolvadex is relatively mild, the highest concentration of estrogen occurs in the liver cells, which is generally beneficial for the body. This antiestrogen greatly increases the amount of testosterone in athletes. Studies have shown that if the athlete uses the drug at 20 mg daily for 10 days straight, the concentration of testosterone is increased by 42% compared to the endogenous levels. The main male hormone level is raised by 83% if the drug has been used for more than 1.5 months.
Novo-pharm Nolvadex - Tamoxifen Citrate Possible Side Effects
Nolvadex can still lead to a number of side effects, given its efficacy. These effects are often caused by the drug's antiestrogenic properties Failure to maintain the prescribed dosages and/or the length of use in women may cause negative side effects in the form of partial loss of hair or complete baldness, hot flashes throughout the body, genital itching, pain in the bones.
Male athletes may encounter rise in body temperature, nausea, dizziness. Due to fluid retention in the body, normal kidney function may be compromised. Many people may experience severe headaches, anxiety, and somnolence. Nolvadex can cause digestive disorders in the form of constipation or anorexia as well as potential fatigue. Other negative effects include eye swelling, cataracts, partial and total vision loss. Use may cause rash of the skin. Some users have reported migraines, changes in the cornea, confusion. Nolvadex can cause severe damage to the body in cases of serious liver disease, so it is not recommended for people with hepatitis and other severe diseases.
The antiestrogen increases the amount of progesterone receptors, which is why if the cycle contained anabolic progesterone medications such as trenbolone and nandrolone, it is not approved for use during a drug cycle or PCT. Using trenbolone and nandrolone after Nolvadex leads to prolactin gynecomastia.
It is advised to stop using Nolvadex immediately and substitute it with another antiestrogen such as Clomid or Toremifene to reduce side effects (the latter is a modified version of Nolvadex, without many of its adverse reactions).
Novo-pharm Nolvadex - Tamoxifen Citrate Administration and Dosage
Through anabolic-androgenic drug cycles, it is recommended to use aromatase inhibitors such as Proviron. These medications will not inhibit growth hormone development and will instead increase anabolic hormone levels due to decreased aromatization. During the last week of the drug cycle and 2 weeks after the treatment, Nolvadex should be used as the primary component of post-cycle therapy. When Proviron has not been used during the cycle of anabolic-androgenic steroids, then the antiestrogen will be used from the second week of the cycle up to 2-3 weeks after completion. The normal dose is 10-20 mg. The maximum daily dose is 40 mg.
During the last week of the cycle, it is not appropriate to use Nolvadex as post-cycle therapy must start at the end of the action of the active steroid agent. This period can vary depending on the anabolic drug used. During the cycle, antiestrogen usage is not always necessary – if the steroid drugs used are not susceptible to aromatization, aromatase inhibitors do not need to be taken, so Nolvadex is used at the end of the cycle only.
For restoring testosterone levels and other body functions during PCT, testosterone boosters and other sport supplements are recommended.
