I’ve seen promising outcomes of reversing various forms of gynecomastia with short term use of tamoxifen or raloxifene. Has anyone on here had any experience with one of these drugs?

After gyno induced by Avodart, Casodex, Lupron, there was no help at all in reduction by Tamoxifin. This does not mean it doesn't work for some people. But the consensus by prostate oncologists is that nothing but surgery works for those who have gyno from prostate cancer drugs. One thing overlooked by some docs, however, is that a short course of radiation (3 to 4 Gray dose) to the breasts before the drugs helps to keep growth down in 80% of the cases.
