In the world of professional sports, Fareston, which is also known as Toremifene Citrate, is considered to be a powerful antiestrogen that is used at the end of a steroid cycle, especially when aromatizable steroids are used. The apparent improved safety and ease of use of Fareston is what makes it an excellent choice for sportsmen on steroids.

The chemical name of toremifene is: 2-{p-[(Z)-4-chloro-1,2diphenyl-1-butenyl]phenoxy}-N,N-dimethylethylamine citrate (1:1). The molecular weight of toremifene citrate is 598.10 and its molecular formula is C26H28ClNO • C6H8O7. Tablets of Fareston has toremifene citrate as the active ingredient and the list of inactive ingredients includes colloidal silicon dioxide, lactose, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, povidone, sodium starch glycolate, and starch.

The non-steroidal antiestrogen works by inhibiting the activity of estrogens and is often recommended by medical practitioners to women with breast cancer. It is medically recommended for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer in postmenopausal women with estrogen-receptor positive or unknown tumors.

In the world of steroid-dominated sports, Fareston is used as part of a strong post cycle therapy regimen and is considered to be a better option than Clomid and Nolvadex. Having an active life of 5-7 days, the selective estrogen receptor modulator helps steroid users stay away from side effects of estrogens such as oily skin, acne, bloating, and gynecomastia. The best thing about Fareston-Toremifene Citrate is that it does not eliminate the estrogen or disallow the conversion to occur but makes an attempt to counteract the effects of circulating estrogen in the body in tissues affected by the drug.

In addition to these benefits, Fareston is also useful in increasing the production of luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone, and thereby increasing the level of testosterone. Moreover, the use of Fareston is associated with support to HDL synthesis and LDL cholesterol reductions besides having positive effects on the regulation of serum cholesterol.

The recommended dose of Fareston when taken orally is 60 mg every day. This drug should not be abused as it can lead to side effects, including nausea and vomiting, fatigue, thrombophlebitis, depression, lethargy, anorexia, ischemic attack, arthritis, pulmonary embolism, and myocardial infarction.

Fareston is required to be stored at a controlled room temperature of 25°C (77°F) with excursions permitted to 15-30°C (59-86°F). It should be protected from heat, light, moisture, pets, children, and sources of ignition.
