Nolvadex also called Tamoxifen maintains the substance Tamoxifen Citrate. Its not classed as Steroid, its an anti-estrogenic drug which competitively binds to estrogen receptors in various target tissues. Nolvadex works by blocking estrogen from exerting any action and an anti estrogenic effect is achieved. Tamoxifen has been a very effective treatment due its ability to block estrogenic action in such cells.

This can be noticed by the appearance of swelling or a small lump under the nipple but can get irreversible without surgery. The structure of estrogen is actually very similar to testosterone. The same enzyme can also aromatize many anabolic/androgenic steroids, the buildup of estrogens can be an important concern. Tamoxifen is preferred to combine with HCG and is often used with it.
Proviron can make a good addition to Nolvadex. Proviron can minimize the creation of free-floating estrogen while Tamoxifen only blocks it. A daily intake of 20-30 mg Tamoxifen and 25-50 mg Proviron can be extremly effective when using a strong estrogenic cycle. Female athletes often avoid adding Proviron to Tamoxifen to avoid developing virilization symptoms and virilizing effects can occur very quickly once its used so women should be very careful with such a combination.
