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.

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.
