Nolvadex is a drug based on the active ingredient Tamoxifen Citrate and is produced by the sports pharmaceutical company Dragon Pharma. Tamoxifen is a classic remedy and its use is widespread in post-cycle therapy (PCT), which is a process performed after cycles of anabolic steroid drugs. Tamoxifen for PCT is one of the most popular anti-oestrogenic agents. The drug helps to effectively restore the body’s production of natural testosterone. Tamoxifen completely blocks oestrogen receptors and interferes with fluid retention. The drug is an indispensable tool both for PCT and for the prevention or elimination of unwanted side reactions from taking anabolic steroid drugs.
