Tamoxifen Citrate Tablets is a drug that was created to block estrogen in the body and stabilize the synthesis of its own testosterone. For those athletes who take steroids, the need for this drug has been proven by many years of practice: the drug helps to avoid such undesirable side effects like gynecomastia and other effects of aromatization.
Short description Tamoxifen. Properties. Effects on the human body
In medicine, the active component of the drug, Tamoxifen Citrate, has been studied quite thoroughly. The drug is a good antiestrogen and antagonist, in science it is called a selective modulator of estrogen receptors. This means that Tamoxifen and its analogues block the activity of estrogen in the cells and tissues of the body, but in some cases it can act in the role of estrogen itself, activating the work of receptors sensitive to estrogen.
The instructions for the preparation describe its other properties. The drug does not affect the concentration of estrogens in the blood, it acts solely on receptors sensitive to estrogen.
To more pleasant side effects include increased sensitivity of the pituitary gland to the gonadotropin hormone, which subsequently increases the level of luteinizing hormone and the concentration of testosterone. If you compare this drug with a lot of known in the circle of athletes Clomed, then Tamoxifen wins in everything.
The first is the price, which is much lower than that of Clomed. The second is efficiency, since Tamoxifen requires a lower dosage than Clomed, although the effect is almost the same. Among other things, Tamoxifen can reduce the risk of diseases of the cardiovascular system, because its use contributes to the increase in blood concentrations of high-density cholesterol.
Tamoxifen: how to take?
Many people say that Tamoxifen should be taken as post-course therapy. However, this statement is false. In fact, you need to start taking Tamoxifen from the second week of the steroid course. This is due to the fact that the concentration of estrogens in the blood increases with the concentration of testosterone, a sharp upward surge occurs in the first week of the course, subsequently remaining at a high level. Therefore, you need to immediately block the growing number of estrogens. The Tamoxifen drug will help you.
In addition, luteinizing hormone has a stimulating effect on the synthesis of testosterone. This makes Tamoxifen an indispensable drug for athletes. The drug is almost safe, so other drugs, in comparison with Tamoxifen, are losing to him.
First of all, it should be said that the drug can be taken by both men and women athletes. He has neither age nor sex restrictions. For medical purposes, it is even used to treat breast diseases in women, so there is no reason to doubt the safety of the drug.
The recommended dosage of Tamoxifen is 10 to 40 mg per day. Often professionals use the following scheme: in the beginning – 10-20 mg, during the main part – 40 mg., Further – gradual withdrawal. When choosing a Tamoxifen regimen, one must always proceed from the nature of the course of steroids. If you take Nandrolone, trenbolone or oximetalone, then this drug should not be taken. If the drugs you take do not undergo the process of converting to estrogens, then you need to connect Tamoxifen only at the end, for 2-3 weeks after the end.
In other cases, you need to start taking without delay. The maximum effect you get if you start taking the drug at the end of the first – at the beginning of the second week of the course of steroids, and complete its use one month after the end of taking steroids.
