Is Nolvadex the same as Tamoxifen?
Nolvadex is a brand name. The drug itself is called Tamoxifen citrate, or usually just Tamoxifen.
Nolvadex is a drug (taken in tablet form) used to treat breast cancer (in women and men). It can also be used to prevent breast cancer in women who are at high risk of developing it.
What is Nolvadex (Tamoxifen) used for?
Nolvadex is used for treating breast cancer, usually after surgery or radiation treatment. It’s also used for treating breast cancer that’s spread to other parts of the body (metastatic cancer) and for treating ductal carcinoma in situ – cancer in the milk ducts but which doesn’t spread to the rest of the breast.
It can also be taken to prevent cancer in one breast from spreading to the other and to prevent breast cancer in women considered to have a high chance of getting it.
It works only for breast cancers which depend on the hormone estrogen, although that’s about 80% of breast cancers. These breast cancer cells need estrogen to grow and spread. Tamoxifen/Nolvadex blocks estrogen from attaching itself to the breast cancer cells and so blocks the growth of the cancer.
Nolvadex can also be used to treat female infertility (caused by lack of ovulation) and sometimes male infertility.
Nolvadex is also effective in treating gynecomastia (man-boobs) in men and boys (see below).
How long does Nolvadex take to work?
According to drugs.com, Nolvadex / Tamoxifen is generally recommended to be taken for five years for treating breast cancer and ductal carcinoma in situ.
For preventing breast cancer, Nolvadex is generally prescribed for five years, and possibly ten.
Does Nolvadex treat gyno?
Nolvadex / Tamoxifen is also used to treat gynecomastia – when boys or men grow breast tissue (non-cancerous). Although it is reported to be effective in treating gynecomastia (also known as moobs, or bitch tits), the US FDA (Federal Drug Administration) haven’t officially approved this use of it.
Can Nolvadex help one to lose weight?
Weight loss is one of the possible side effects of Nolvadex although it’s definitely not a good idea to take it just for that because of the many serious side effects it might have (see below)!
Can Nolvadex lower your libido?
In some people, yes it does, possibly more often in men than women. It can also cause other sexual problems for women, like vaginal dryness or tightness and discomfort. In men, it’s been reported that it can occasionally inhibit sperm production and cause priapism.
Does Nolvadex raise testosterone?
Nolvadex does seem to raise testosterone in men slightly, based on a study with men with mild infertility. Some men who’re into bodybuilding take it for this reason and also to stop themselves from growing boobs (due to the effects of other steroids). Based on the potential side-effects (see below) this seems a bit dodgy.
Is Nolvadex an aromatase inhibitor?
No. Aromatase inhibitors (such as anastrozole and letrozole) work by reducing the body’s production of estrogen (rather than by blocking estrogen binding to the cancer cells), so they’re only given to women who’re through their menopause.
You shouldn’t take Nolvadex with an aromatase inhibitor as it can make it less effective and cause other problems.
How does Nolvadex compare with Clomid or Arimidex?
Nolvadex (tamoxifen citrate) is in the same class of drugs as Clomid (clomiphene citrate) – selective estrogen receptor modulators – although they’re used for different things. Clomid is primarily used to treat infertility – mostly in women, sometimes in men.
Bodybuilders (male) also sometimes use it to counteract the negative effects of the steroids they’re using – to stop themselves developing breasts and to restore their testosterone levels. The potential side effects of Clomid are less serious than those of Tamoxifen / Nolvadex.
Arimidex is the brand name for anastrozole – an anti-cancer drug which is also used to treat breast cancer but which works in a different way to tamoxifen (as described above). Unlike Nolvadex which is given to women of all ages, Arimidex is generally prescribed only to post-menopausal women.
What other drugs are like Nolvadex?
The drug most similar to Nolvadex / Tamoxifen is Raloxifene (Evista). Like Nolvadex, it’s a selective estrogen receptor modulator. It works in a similar way to tamoxifen – by blocking the effects of estrogen on cells in the breasts. But, and this is a big but, it isn’t actually effective in treating breast cancer.
What it can do though is help with preventing breast cancer in postmenopausal women who’re at high risk of breast cancer and it doesn’t have the side effect of increasing the risk of uterine cancer. It can also be used to prevent or treat osteoporosis.
As discussed in the previous sections, aromatase inhibitors like Arimidex/anostrozole or Femara/letrozole are similar to Nolvadex in that they can treat or prevent breast cancer. However, since they work in a slightly different way (by reducing the amount of estrogen made by the body), they’re mainly suitable for post-menopausal women.

What are the side effects of Nolvadex?
Although Nolvadex / tamoxifen can reduce your risk of breast cancer (and treat breast cancer), it can actually raise your risk of getting some other cancers, such as uterine cancer. Taking it can also put you more at risk of stroke, pulmonary embolism (blocked artery in the heart) and problems with your vision.
“Women taking Nolvadex to decrease the risk of developing breast cancer have developed cancer of the uterus, stroke, and blood clots in the lung. Some of these events have been fatal. Contact your doctor right away if you develop symptoms such as unusual vaginal bleeding or discharge; abnormal menstrual period; groin pressure or pain; chest pain; shortness of breath; coughing up blood; confusion; one-sided weakness; vision problems or slurred speech.”
Other potentially serious side effects include risk of blood clots and deep vein thrombosis, which can lead to oedema (fluid retention and swelling) in the limbs. It can also cause you to develop a fatty liver – not good.
