Nolvadex For Post Cycle Therapy (PCT)
The other primarily utilized purpose for Nolvadex among bodybuilders and athletes is its ability to stimulate and increase the male production of endogenous Testosterone, as evidenced by many studies. It does so by acting on the pituitary and hypothalamus gland in the brain, and signaling an increase in production of FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) and LH (Luteinizing Hormone), which then signal the testes to produce Testosterone. In this case, Nolvadex is usually administered during PCT, which is immediately after the anabolic steroid cycle is complete and all anabolic steroids are clear from the individual’s system.
In this application of administration, 20 – 40mg per day of Nolvadex per day for approximately 4 – 6 weeks. Studies have demonstrated that venturing higher than 20 – 40mg per day does not generate any significantly greater amount of Testosterone production. Nolvadex is also normally included with the administration of at least one or two other Testosterone stimulating compounds during PCT (such as an aromatase inhibitor, usually Aromasin, and/or HCG) in order to enhance its effects on promoting proper HPTA function following the conclusion of a cycle.
The use of Nolvadex during a cycle will not counter-act the Testosterone suppression of anabolic steroid use and will not keep endogenous Testosterone production going amidst the use of suppressive compounds. It is therefore not recommended to do so, as it would be a waste of product and money.
Nolvadex possesses an extremely long half-life for an oral compound, approximately 5 – 7 days, and some studies demonstrating as long as 14 days. There should therefore be no requirement to split dosages up throughout the day, and it is safe to consume with food or on an empty stomach.
Nolvadex For Gynecomastia
Within the bodybuilding and performance enhancement world, Nolvadex is primarily and commonly utilized as an ancillary aid to combating, reducing, and/or preventing the development of Gynecomastia. This is normally especially the case when a particularly moderate or aromatizable anabolic steroid is utilized in a cycle. Dosing of Nolvadex in this case is approximately 10 – 30mg per day. The common dosing tends to be 20mg per day of Nolvadex. It is very important to understand that higher and higher dosages of Nolvadex, greater than 20 – 40mg per day, does not produce any greater or faster effect on reducing or preventing gynecomastia, despite common misconceptions.
