Tamoximed comes in boxes, each unit containing 30 pills (20 mg/ pill).
Tamoximed proved the ability to increase production of follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone in the human body.
It is accomplished by blocking the negative feedback inhibition caused by estrogen at the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. However the main role of this medication is to be an anti-estrogen blocker.
While using it, the Tamoximed molecule bound to this receptor, estrogen is blocked from exerting any action, and the anti-estrogenic effect is achieved.
Users should know that Tamoximed acts only as an estrogen antagonist and does not prevent aromatization process.

Tamoximed is usually administered around the time when exogenous steroid levels drop and it should be continued for several weeks after, until the point when natural Testosterone is brought to normal level. Women also use this compound in order to reduce the effect of their own endogenous estrogens. It is recommended for women to use much lower dosages, about 10 mg daily.
Tamoximed is often used in combination with other medications to achieve greater effect.
