Nolvadex Half Life

History

Nolvadex is the trade name for the drug Tamoxifen Citrate, which was first manufactured by Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI). Later, ICI was purchased by AstraZeneca, which is one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. Currently, tamoxifen is on the World Health Organization's list of essential medicines because of its many different uses. Although on paper it might seem like it could be considered an aromatase inhibitor (AI), it's actually a SERM (selective estrogen receptor modulator)

How it works for post cycle therapy (PCT)

When a user runs anabolic steroids, the pituitary realizes it's getting too much hormone, so it goes dormant. This sends your LH to near zero (0) and the body no longer produces its own testosterone; in simple terms, your natural testosterone production shuts down. So, when you come off a cycle it’s important to run a PCT (post cycle therapy) to help recover the body’s HPTA.

Tamoxifen does not mimic the LH in the body, rather it stimulates the hypophysis to release more gonadotropins. Gonadotropins are protein hormones that are secreted by gonadotrope cells of the pituitary gland and stimulate faster and higher release of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). When this happens, the rise in LH will spike up the total testosterone levels allowing a smooth post cycle therapy (PCT). As a result, this will help you minimize any losses in muscle gains until your own body is able to recover.

Nolvadex vs. Clomid

Milligram for milligram, nolvadex is far stronger than clomid. They are similar in that they are both SERMs, and simply prevent the estrogen from binding to the receptors where it can cause a problem. Neither are aromatase inhibitors. It terms of bodybuilding, it is up to the user to decide which one they prefer through experience. I found a combination of the two (2) drugs is the safest bet for PCT. However, for gynecomastia treatment, tamoxifen is a far better option.

Side effects and dosage

Some users swear by nolvadex, others prefer clomid during pct. Some users complain about reduced libido, others say it increases libido. I believe the negativity with tamoxifen is due to improper dosing protocols – mainly over-dosing with high dosages.

You should start with 10-20mg every other day at the most, and see how the dosage works for you. Make sure to run it as a part of a complete post cycle therapy.

 There is evidence that Nolvadex up-regulates progestin receptors. This means if you run tamoxifen along with a progestin, such as any type of nandrolone or trenbolone, you run a higher chance of developing progestin related side effects. This has some ongoing debate in both the medical and bodybuilding community. Therefore, to be on the safe side, don't use it with progestins.

Half-Life

Tamoxifen Citrate has a 6 day half-life, but in different medical documents it's shown between 5 and 7 days.

Purchasing

Tamoxifen is usually sold in 20 milligrams tablets. It's commonly found in research use only preparations at 20mgs/ml, 30ml bottle.
