|Nolvadex vs. Clomid|
Clomiphene vs. Tamoxifen
Clomid (Clomiphene) and Nolvadex (Tamoxifen) are drugs that are both classied as Antiestrogens.
Although their mechanism of action is very similar they are still different drugs and each has its drawbacks and advantages.
Nolvadex is FDA approved for the treatment of breast cancer in women and men. The most common off label use of Nolvadex is to stop or cure
Gynecomastia ('man boobs') in men. It is known that athletes who use steroids use Nolvadex in order to prevent Gynecomasia symptomps.
Nolvadex works by competeing for the estrogen receptors which exist primarily in the nipple area. When the Nolvadex attaches to the receptors it does not
let estrogen attach to the receptors, hence it prevents fat tissues or fibrous tissues from forming in the nipple area.
Clomid if FDA approved to treat infertility in women. In men, a common off label use of Clomid is to treat male infertility such as low-sperm count
and to stimulate natural testosterone production. Men who use performance enhancing drugs like steroids, use Clomid after they discontinue the steroids use referred to as cycle.
Steroids cause a partial or complete shutdown of natural testosterone production as well as fertility issues. Clomid helps the body to increase the natural production of testosterone, increase the
testes size which are shrunk during steroids abuse.
Since both Nolvadex and Clomid work the same pathways as antiestrogens, it is now known that some athletes use Nolvadex for PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) for stimulating natural teststerone
production just like Clomid does. There is no definite evidence to support that Clomid is more effective than Nolvadex or viceversa.
Men who experience side effects from Clomid may switch to Nolvadex. The common Clomid side effects are visual problems, though some report acne and 'mental sensitivity'.
Some combine an antiestrogen like Clomid or Nolvadex along with anti-aromatase like Arimidex (Anastrozole), Letrozole (Femara) or Aromasin (Exemestane).
