Doc prescribed Tamoxifen for 6 months ?? ...
due to my low test numbers she wants me to do 6 months of Tamoxifen (Nolva) at 20 mg a day ... then take a month off and then retest for my test numbers.
I asked/told her about TRT ... she wasn't against it, but wanted to try this first....
Being on this for that amount of time... what supplements do I need to add to it .... one person mentioned doing Erase with it... but I know that has to be cycled...
Looking for some guidance to this situation ..

That's a long time running a SERM, I thought Clomid was better than Nolva to raise your test levels.

I thought that was a long time... but thats why I posted here... you guys know your stuff ...
More opionions the better ... I may be talking to her based on what you guys say ...

OP: Don't be afraid to voice your concern to your doc and ask them to explain and describe everything to you in detail for your understanding. Perhaps she'll have a reason that will make you go.. "oh, that makes sense."
Also, it's in your right to ask for a second opinion. If you are still concerned after what they have to say, just politely ask if they could provide you witha second opinion.

run it... tamoxifen was MADE to be run for long periods of time...
if it was me, id take the risk to run it longer to have my test back to where it should be...
it couldnt hurt to run a natty test booster with it... maybe daa and erase.. but run that by the doc first

thanks for the replies guys.... I have done some more research and find that they have women on it for 5 years and more...
I will probably talk with her some more but I have started it at 20 mg a day .... done with the first week.
I do plan on running some test booster with it ... PP's TRS package most likely ...

The side effects have been documented, and dont seem to be very good in the ong run. If you wish to follow your doctors orders then be my guest, personally i wouldnt put my body through that just because the person "has a medical degree"...ive seen many people receive wrong advice from doctors.

6 months is nothing.
i agree that its not the best option and people have seen good results with 50mg clomid ever other day.
IMO i would ask the doctor about hCG first before serm therapy and ask about using something like nolva or arimidex in addition to prevent the lesions on the leydig cells that may occur from over use or to frequent use. this shoulld only take 3 months

Point being they don't always know everything, but will often pretend to. Just get a second opinion.

1. Absolutely no problem taking a SERM long term under supervision of a doctor. Breast Cancer suvivors, for both genders (yes, it does happen very rarely in men too) take it for years.
2. Surprising that the doctor didn't prescribe Clomid instead of Tamoxifen. It's much more commonly used in HPTA-restart protocols for men in a clinical setting. Tamoxifen might work, but there's been a lot more research done on Clomid for this specific purpose.

LOL - I would damn sure follow the advice of a Doctor before anyone on this board - sorry. If you have a problem with her directions - how about telling her your concerns and then allowing her to respond to them with her reasoning behind what she's doing?
You can always get a second opinion - I just wouldn't get one from this board. No one on this board is legally liable for a thing they say here - well, they might be - but it would be damned hard to hold 'em to it.

I would go with something different than the PP test recovery stack with your serm IMO.
DAA, T booster of your choice, low dose AI
