    Clomid vs Nolva for post cycle...


    Ive done a lot of reading and searching, so I hope Im not posting something thats been discussed a trillion times...

    Most people seem to go with liquid clomid post cycle. Although, from everything Ive read, nolva is superior to clomid for post cycle recovery. Is clomid more popular just because its cheaper?

    I believe personally that is one of the reasons. The other is the interia of users to use something that is new. Mainly, it is the "It ain't broken, so why fix it" attitude. Which is hard to change with a lot of people.

    Yeah, price seems to be an issue, and just haveing the old school way of thinking like Matt said above. Everything I've read points towards nolva as being the better choice, but I think the fact that clomid is cheaper and will do the job is the key there. If gyno symptoms show up , then there's no doubt 20mg of nolva/day is the way to go. My opinion anyway.

    BTW Someone should do a comparison of post cycle therapy options, OTC or meds If I get off my lazy ass I'll get on it.

    That's what I was thinking MatthewD. Most people seem to think that Nolva is best use while on cycle, and clomid while off. All the research Ive read points to Nolva as being superior to Clomid in both respects...

    Bump nolva. If you like being a whimpering, emotional *****, clomid is the way.

    I did some more searching for articles that support this:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/q...&dopt=Abstract

    This link applies to women...
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/q...&dopt=Abstract

    An article describing how Nolva is preferred over Clomid for bringing back the HPTA...
    http://www.basskilleronline.com/nolvadex_vs_clomid.html

    BigCat's article on Nolva and Clomid, in which he also prefers Nolva to Clomid post cycle...
    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/catnolv.htm

    Nolva is also reported to lower cholesterol, which might be particularly helpful after a cycle...(I dont know if 1test/4AD rasies cholesterol levels, though)

    I must say the price deciding factor for me. At least this time being my first cycle of anything that needs post cycle therapy, and the gyno wasn't a big issue this time 1-test/4-ad. Depending of how moody it makes me will be a big issue, I don't want to turn into the emotional woman

    Nolva is only $15 more than clomid, and if you use it at 20mg/day post cycle, you'd still have half the nolva left over.

    I dont want to be an emotional woman either.

    Yep it is only $15 but on my poor budget thats like a weeks worth of chicken patties from walmart

    WHen I do a cycle that may cause gyno the nolva will be a definate but with this one the only concern was restarting the hpta.

    I went with the Nolva as well. 40.00 is still cheaper than 2 bottles of 6 oxo. Does this stuff taste as bad as liquid clomid? I'm thinking of ordering the capsules to put it in, but everytime I get something like this in the mail my wife freaks out. Maybe I can find them for sale somewhere local...

    How long should your post last? I guess what I'm trying to say is how long should you take 6-oxo or nolva or clomid after your cycle.
    I have a bottle of 6-oxo for post cycle and am planning on getting some liquid nolva. Will one bottle of each be enough?
    Thanks.

    Yeah, one of each should be plenty.
    Take 6-oxo 6 caps a day for the 1st two weeks, then 3 caps a day for the next two weeks.
    Take Nolva at 20mg a day for the full 4 weeks.

    Should you take all 6 caps of 6-oxo at once or 3 in the am and 3 in the pm.
    Also by my calculations that is 126 caps of 6-oxo. Do they it come in 120 cap bottles. I could only find 60cap bottles so I ordered one.

    you would have to get 2 bottles (only comes in the 60cap). Also, spread out the dosage throughout the day. 3 am and 3 pm is fine. So would splitting up 2 caps morning, afternoon, evening. Sage

    absolutely. of course the heavier the cyle, the more you would need for post cycle however if you were to use nolvadex and 6oxo together, i would say 300mg stacked with 20mg/day down to 10mg (tablets) would do you fine. Sage

    Thanks for the reply sage - Im on a 4week cycle of T1 at 5 squirts a day. (200mg 1test/400 mg 4AD). This is just 44mg of 1test over the 'moderate' dosage...

    Is the nolva to be used at 20mg/day for 2 weeks then 10mg/day for the last 2 weeks?

    Thanks,

    that would be fine. Ive used nolva only (w/ a little tribulus and eca combo) and tailed off from 40mg of nolva the first week, into 20 the rest of the way for 3-4 weeks. I would venture to say that you could get away with only a week of the higher does along with your 6oxo and drop back after 7-10 days. Are you applying 3 squirts in the evening and 2 squirts in the morning? If so, continue it. Sage

    Or what about formasin, I thought somebody said they liked that. If I were to do a cycle I think I might try formasin daily to keep the bloat down and insure no e problems...

    Also, spread out the dosage throughout the day. 3 am and 3 pm is fine. So would splitting up 2 caps morning, afternoon, evening. Sage
    I would not split up the 6 caps of 6-oxo . The enzyme needs only to be destroyed once per day. A higher dosage all at once will ensure this more effectively.

    BTW PA claims that the results from his study regarding 6-oxo effectiveness are very promising indeed.

    What dosage of nova should I use for post cycle. I did a search but all I found were posts regarding milligrams and I would think that would be for tabs. I have a liquid medicine dropper that is in ml.'s that I plan to use for the nolva.
    My post cylce is 6-oxo (2 bottles), liquid nolva, flax oil, ZMA, keep the cals up for a couple of weeks, and stick to my routine that I have been on.

    one bottle of liquid-nolva should last you one post cylce. most out there contains a total of 1000mg of tamoxifen citrate (around 20mg/mL concentration in a 50mL bottle). 2 mL/day (40mgs) would be a good dose. Sage

    you really only need one. 600mg/day 6oxo to start, tailing down to 400mg/day or 40-50mg/day nolvadex (thats 2mL) tailing down to 25-30mg/day would do the trick. If you have both and want to use the two together, 300-400mg/day 6oxo + 20-25mg/day nolva would work. Its not that hard BigV ( ) Sage

    Thanks sage I got it now.
    I'll use 400mg/day of 6 oxo and 2ml/day of liquid nolva untill both are gone.
    Sage, it's sounds like ,by reading your post above, that one bottle of 6oxo will be enough for post cycle as long as I'm also using liquid nolva. I've been on a 6wk moderate dosage cycle.
    And I also want to say thanks sage for all your help on this subject.

    Sage, it's sounds like ,by reading your post above, that one bottle of 6oxo will be enough for post cycle as long as I'm also using liquid nolva. I've been on a 6wk moderate dosage cycle.
    And I also want to say thanks sage for all your help on this subject.
    here to help brah. and you right MC, with the use of both anti-est, you will be done with the 6oxo after 15 days (thats if you dont tail off to a lower dosage towards the later weeks of post). you'll be running the liquid nolva (assuming thats what you're using, and not tabs) will last you 25 days. That will be just fine to run 6oxo along side of nolvadex for the inital 2 weeks plus, and run nolva alone for the remaining. Sage

    Here's what Im planning on doing:

    6-oxo at 6 tabs/day for 2 weeks
    Nolva at 20mg/day for 4 weeks

    This way I will have a little less than 1/2 the vial of liqua-nolva left, I have 3/4 of a bottle of T1 left too. Another bottle of 6-oxo and I will have a 3week T1 cycle and enough for a solid post-cycle later on.
