Once you decide to buy steroids, specifically Nolvadex, you must know its properties. Nolvadex is the brand name for the generic drug Tamoxifen Citrate. It was manufactured by ICI Pharmaceuticals in the early 1960s and since then has been extensively used in the treatment of certain types of breast cancers.
Nolvadex belongs to the class of drugs called SERM or Selective Estrogen Receptors Modulator. This means that Nolvadex has the ability to bind with certain types of tissues while block others. This characteristic of Nolvadex is very helpful in treating estrogen related breast in women. It is also used as a preventive medicine as it is given to those women who have a history of breast cancer in the family. Nolvadex is also helpful in treating metastatic breast cancer; a cancer that spreads to other parts of the body. Nolvadex is also prescribed to men who are diagnosed with lumps in the breast. Women with infertility problems are also advised to buy Nolvadex as it stimulates ovulation.
Nolvadex is not a steroid yet body builders and athletes buy Nolvadex. Body builders and athletes use steroids to enhance performance and most importantly for muscle mass gain and strength gains. The steroids increase the number of testosterones in the body but at the same time the body suppresses its own supply of testosterones. When the steroid cycle is complete, the testosterone level falls sharply while the body itself is unable to produce enough testosterones to maintain the gains. At this point body builders and athletes buy Nolvadex to use it in post cycle therapy. Nolvadex causes an increase in the follicle hormones and the luteinizing hormones which in turn cause an increase in the level of testosterone in the body. This helps the body to maintain its gains.
Another reason why body builders and athletes buy Nolvadex is to curb gynocomastia; the nasty side effect of steroids. Gynocomastia occurs because steroids have the tendency to aromatize (the conversion of testosterones into estrogen). The increased estrogen binds with the estrogen receptors in the breast tissue and gets deposited there, giving the user abnormally large breasts. Nolvadex being a selective receptor prevents the binding of estrogens with the receptors and so minimizes the chances of gynocomastia.
Gynocomastia does not occur due to steroids alone; it can be caused by other factors too. Men buy Nolvadex to fight off pubertal gynocomastia and physiological gynocomastia.
You can buy Nolvadex either in the form of syrup or as tablets. In case the user has taken steroids orally then he should immediately start Nolvadex post cycle. But in case of injectible steroids, the user should start the post cycle therapy after a gap of four to seven days if he has taken weak steroids. For strong steroids, the user should start the Nolvadex post cycle after one and a half to three weeks.
A normal post cycle lasts for four weeks and the user should begin with the maximum dose which is 40 mg per day for men and 20 mg for women. After taking the maximum dose for two weeks, the user must reduce the dose to half for the remaining two weeks.
Nolvadex user can experience some side effects such as vomiting, nausea and hot flashes. Headaches and dizziness also occur with this drug. The users have also reported swelling in legs and clotting of blood in the lungs.
Nolvadex is easily available in pharmacies but you need to show a prescription to buy Nolvadex. Under such circumstances it is better to buy Nolvadex online because they do not ask you for a prescription and are economical and reliable as well.
