Clomphid review

Clomphid is used for the treatment of infertility among female patients. It stimulates increased hormones vital to the growth and release of mature eggs for ovulation.

Clomphid is available in tablet form and marketed under the brand names Clomin, Milophene, Serophene, Clomid, Clomiphene, Clostilbegyt, Dyneric, Omifin, and Ikaclomin.

Patients having difficulties getting pregnant may take Clomphid. It may be used in conjunction with a medicine called Metformin to help patients ovulate and become pregnant.

Studies reveal that 70 % of patients who used Clomphid were able to ovulate, a good majority of them during the first months of treatment. Of that population, 15-50% became pregnant.

Patients are prescribed 50 milligrams of Clomphid for 5 days beginning on the fifth day of their menstrual cycle. In case ovulation does not occur, dosage can be increased to 100 milligrams for 5 days the month after the previous dosage. It is not advised that patients take Clomphid after 6 treatment cycles.

Follow the dosing schedule to get the best results. Patients should not take the tablet for longer than the doctor prescribed. In case of a missed dose, patients should immediately inform their doctor to determine the next steps. It is not recommended that patients take double doses to resume their dosing schedule.

For best results, physicians may look into some factors, including the body temperature of the patient and ovulation tests prior to prescribing Clomphid.

Patients may experience side effects including upset stomach, hot flashes, pelvic fullness, cephalalgia, breast tenderness, or dizziness. If these symptoms persist, patients should immediately notify their physicians. In general, the chances of a patient experiencing these side effects are low.

Patients may experience changes in their vision such as seeing flashes while taking Clomphid. This is more common if they are exposed to intense lighting. If a patient does experience this side effect, it may go away after a couple of days after treatment.

Other serious side effects include vaginal bleeding and changes in moods. Some patients may experience severe pain or skin edema in the pelvic area, diarrhea, difficulty in breathing, chest pain, irregular heartbeat, wamble, and skin edema of the legs.

Before taking Clomphid, women should inform their doctor about any history of allergies to medications. Patients should also consult their physician about their conditions such as liver disease, vaginal bleeding, uncontrolled thyroid, and pituitary tumor before agreeing to use Clomphid.

There have been cases where the use of Clomphid resulted in the patient having multiple births like twins and triplets.

Women are advised against engaging in activities that require mental alertness such as driving since Clomphid can make a person dizzy or suffer from blurred vision.

Patients should tell their doctor or pharmacist about all the prescription medicines they are using before taking Clomphid.
