Frequently asked questions about Entax Tablet

Frequently asked questions about Tamoxifen

Entax is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) for both prevention and treatment of breast cancer in high-risk women. It is not actually a chemotherapy or cytotoxic but a hormone therapy which is given as part of an adjuvant chemotherapy program and works in women who have breast cancer that depends on estrogen for growth
Q. What is Cytotam 20/ Nolvadex?
Cytotam 20/ Nolvadex are brand names of Tamoxifen
Q. Is Nolvadex a SERM /is nolvadex prescription only/ does Nolvadex reduce estrogen?
Nolvadex is a brand name for tamoxifen. Tamoxifen is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM). It is to be used only at the advice and under the supervision of registered medical practitioner. Tamoxifen binds and blocks the estrogen receptors on the surface of breast cells, preventing estrogen from binding to the estrogen-sensitive cancer cells and stops the growth and reproduction of these deadly cells
Nolvadex is not a steroid but actually has quite a few applications for steroid-using athletes, the most common use being the prevention of gynecomastia (enlargement of breasts in men). Nolvadex post androgen-cycle therapy (PCT) is usually implemented when supplementation of anabolic androgenic steroids has altered the levels of natural hormone. Nolvadex is not an aromatase inhibitor (AI). There is no indication to use Entax without steroids
Entax (Nolvadex) is considered safe when used at recommended dosage and duration. It may cause side effects such as liver dysfunction, changes in your periods, hair loss, headaches, weight gain, joint pain, decrease in libido, erectile dysfunction. Side effects such as insomnia, raised blood pressure and dry mouth are not known but may occur with its use
Q. Is Nolvadex or Clomid better?
Nolvadex contains tamoxifen, while Clomid contains clomiphene citrate. Both these drugs are selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs). Tamoxifen is primarily used to prevent or treat breast cancer, but like clomiphene can be used to induce ovulation in women who are infertile. Studies have shown that one drug does not have advantage over the other, and are equally effective for induction of ovulation.
