Clomid (generic name: Clomiphene citrate; brand names: Serophene / Phenate / Clomifert / Milophene) is one of the most prescribed fertility drugs. Clomid is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM). Clomid is indicated for the treatment of ovulatory dysfunction in women desiring pregnancy.
Clomid is used for the treatment of ovulatory failure in women. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Clomid must be combined with proper efforts from the patient. Properly timed sexual intercourse is important for good results. You may take this with or without a meal. Take exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
If you miss a dose of Clomid, then take it as soon as you remember. If it is time for your next dose, take the 2 doses together and go back to your regular schedule. If you miss more than 1 dose, contact your doctor.
Store it at room temperature away from heat, light and moisture. Keep away from children.
Seek medical attention immediately if you suspect an overdose.
The drug increases the chances of multiple births (twins). Also, the doctor will examine your liver function and the estrogen levels in your body before prescribing the drug. The drug may cause light-headedness, dizziness, and faintness in some people. Do not consume alcohol along with the drug. Do not drive or handle heavy machinery until you know how to react to the drug.
