Presentation: 100 x 20 mg
Nolvadex by Dragon Pharma is a potent non-steroidal anti-estrogen. It is indicated for use in estrogen dependent tumors, i.e. breast cancer. Steroid users take it to prevent the effects of estrogen in the body. This estrogen is most often the result of aromatizing steroids. Nolvadex can aid in preventing edema, gynecomastia, and female pattern fat distribution, all of which might occur when a man’s estrogen levels are too high. Also, these effects can occur when androgen levels are too low, making estrogen the predominant hormone. This can occur when endogenous androgens have been suppressed by the prolonged use of exogenous steroids. Nolvadex works by competitively binding to target estrogen sites like those at the breast.
This drug is not toxic nor have any side effects been seen in athletes who used it an anti-estrogen; therefore it is the most popular anti-estrogen amongst steroid users.
Although it does not turn out to be 100% effective for everyone, it does seem to exhibit some level of effectiveness for the majority. It works so well for some bodybuilders they can take drugs like Anadrol right up to a contest as long as they stack it with Nolvadex. It would seem wise to take this drug in conjunction with any steroid cycle. Most reported a dosage of 10 mg to 20 mg daily got the job done.
Effective Dose: 1 – 2 tabs/day
Nolvadex is very comparable to Clomid, behaves in the same manner in all tissues, and is a mixed estrogen agonist/antagonist of the same type as Clomid. The two molecules are also very similar in structure.
Athletes like to use Nolvadex at the end of a steroid cycle since it increases the body’s own Testosterone production.
The dose of Nolvadex will be different for different patients. Follow your doctor’s orders or the directions on the label. Normally the dose will vary between 20-40 mg./day. Athletes seldom use more than 30 mg./day.
There are many possible side effects that are very different depending on how long time Nolvadex is used as well as depending on the sex of the user.
Many athletes like to use it at the end of a steroid cycle since it increases the body’s own testosterone production and to prevent estrogenic side effects of taking anabolic steroids.
Dragon Pharma Nolvadex is also useful during a diet since it helps in the burning of fat. Although Tamoxifen has no direct fat-burning effect its antiestrogenic effect contributes to keeping the estrogen level as low as possible.
