hey ive just searched with google, because i wasnt quite sure myself. found this:
NOLVADEX ̉(tamoxifen citrate) Tablets, a non********* antiestrogen, are for oral administration. NOLVADEX Tablets are available as:
10 mg Tablets:
Each tablet contains 15.2 mg of tamoxifen citrate which is equivalent to 10 mg of tamoxifen.
20 mg Tablets:
Each tablet contains 30.4 mg of tamoxifen citrate which is equivalent to 20 mg of tamoxifen.
Inactive Ingredients: carboxymethylcellulose calcium, magnesium stearate, mannitol and starch.
Chemically, NOLVADEX is the trans-isomer of a triphenylethylene derivative. The chemical name is (Z)2-[4- (1,2-diphenyl-1-butenyl) phenoxy]-N, N-dimethylethanamine 2 hydroxy-1,2,3- propanetricarboxylate (1:1). The structural and empirical formulas are:

NOLVADEX is the brand name by AstraZeneca(sp) for Tamoxifen Citrate. Tamoxifen is the main ingredient. Citrate is an acid tamoxifen is dissolved in.
Like ADVIL is the brand name and Ibuprofen is the main ingredient.
The ratios you are referring to are the actual main ingredient Tamoxifen in the acid, citrate. Basically, tamoxifen is dissolved in citrate, an acid.
Like Ephederine HCl, the ephederine is dissolved in HCL, hydrochloric acid. It has to do with solubility. Tamoxifen does the estrogen binding while the citrate is an acid the tamoxifen is dissolved in.
A 10mg of tamoxifen (one 10mg tablet) = 15.2mg of TAMOXIFEN CITRATE
A 20mg of tamoxifen (one 20mg tablet) = 30.4mg of TAMOXIFEN CITRATE
Again, NOLVADEX is the brand name...it could have been named shiatADEX but still have the main ingredient tamoxifen in a citrate acid. Tons of shiat are dissovled in citrate...for instance clomiphene citrate(clomid), Sildenafil citrate(viagra), etc. Also, tons of shiat are dissolved in HCL.
Tamoxifen is what's doing all the work while the citrate is just an acid the tamoxifen is dissolved in.
Here, read for yourself. Straight from Astrazeneca:
