Tamoxifen Teva 10 mg is an oral drug and containing active substance Tamoxifen Citrate which is a is an antagonist of the estrogen receptor in breast tissue by its active metabolite, hydroxytamoxifen. In medicine it is used to treat advanced estrogen receptor positive breast cancer in pre- and post-menopausal women. Tamoxifen is used to prevent estrogen related gynecomastia, resulting from elevated estrogenic levels and is one of the most popular and utilized drug by athletes and bodybuilders worldwide. Tamoxifen comes in boxes, each unit containing 30 pills (10 mg/ pill).
Tamoxifen Teva is one of the most famous estrogen antagonists used by bodybuilders. While using it the Tamoxifen molecule bound to this receptor, estrogen is blocked from exerting any action, and the anti-estrogenic effect is achieved. Users should know that Tamoxifen acts only as an estrogen antagonist and does not prevent aromatization process. Tamoxifen proved the ability to increase production of follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone in the human body. It is accomplished by blocking the negative feedback inhibition caused by estrogen at the hypothalamus and pituitary gland.
Tamoxifen is used by male bodybuilders as well as by female athletes. The drug is used depending on the level of the desired effect, but a typical daily dosage for men is in the range of 10 to 30 mg. Users should start with lowest dosage and then increase it gradually. Tamoxifen is usually administered around the time when exogenous steroid levels drop and it should be continued for several weeks after, until the point when natural Testosterone is brought to normal level. Women also use this compound in order to reduce the effect of their own endogenous estrogens. It is recommended for women to use much lower dosages, about 10 mg daily. Tamoxifen is often used in combination with other medications to achieve greater effect. For a stronger anti-estrogenic effect it is useful to stack Tamoxifen with Proviron. While Tamoxifen only blocks the binding ability of floating estrogen, Proviron can minimize its creation. In post cycle therapy Tamoxifen is an indispensable product. The half life of this drug is relatively long enabling the user to implement a single daily dosing schedule.
