Tamoxifen is a prescription drug used to manage and prevent breast cancer in men and women. It has been around for over 30 years. Interestingly, the drug has gained popularity in the bodybuilding community. The drug is used in the cycle of anabolic steroids as an auxiliary drug and also in post-anabolic cycles. An auxiliary drug is a substance consumed to offset the side effects of anabolic steroids. But what is a cycle of anabolic steroids?
The anabolic steroid cycle is the period during which a bodybuilder uses an anabolic steroid. As a bodybuilder, your main goal is to develop lean muscles and at the same time lose weight; This is where tamoxifen comes in. You can use tamoxifen as part of your steroid cycle to help you achieve the following goals:
-Improve muscle mass and strength
-Promote a harder and leaner physique
-Improve sports performance
Tamoxifen is a safe medicine to use because it binds to estrogen receptors. Keep in mind that this is not an anabolic steroid. The anabolic steroid has aromatization characteristics that can lead to breast augmentation (gynecomastia) and increased fat deposits. So you can take this medicine with anabolic steroids.
Normally for bodybuilders, the dose of the drug is 10 to 40 mg per day.

Taking the medicine with health problems can aggravate side effects and health problems.
