What is Tamoxifen Citrate

Tamoxifen Citrate is an antagonist of estrogen receptor that is found in breast tissue. The drug has active metabolite – 4-hydroxytamoxifen and because it works as an agonist, it can be classified as a selective estrogen-receptor modulator.

Tamoxifen works by blocking the effects of hormones that normally worsen some types of breast cancer, thus, the steroid blocks or stops the growth of these cancerous cells that are already found in the human body. Because this drug can be used by women of all ages, before and after their menopause, and due to its strong agonist properties, Tamoxifen is one of the most commonly used medications in the treatment of breast cancer. Besides stopping the growth of the cancerous cells, the drug helps preventing new cancer in the second breast and it reduces the risk of a cancerous disease in women with higher risk. It is often used both in advanced stages of breast cancer and in early stages, and it can be found by its brand name of Nolvadex or Valodex but often it is referred by its generic name Tamoxifen.

Also, Tamoxifen Citrate is used in bodybuilding as a steroid to enhance weight lifting/training.

How to use Tamoxifen Citrate
