Enclomiphene citrate is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs known as selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs). It is primarily used in the treatment of certain hormonal imbalances, specifically in men with low testosterone levels.
Enclomiphene citrate works by blocking the effects of estrogen in the body. It binds to estrogen receptors, preventing estrogen from exerting its usual influence. This can lead to an increase in the production of hormones that stimulate the production of testosterone, such as luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). As a result, enclomiphene citrate can help restore testosterone levels in men who have low levels of this hormone.
This medication is primarily prescribed for men with hypogonadism, a condition in which the testes do not produce enough testosterone. It may be used as an alternative to testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) or as part of a treatment plan to stimulate natural testosterone production.
Enclomiphene citrate is typically taken orally in tablet form. The dosage and duration of treatment are determined by a healthcare professional based on individual needs and response.
