Tell your doctor about all of the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Tell your doctor if you start a new medicine. CLOMID® may affect the way other medicines work, and other medicines may affect how CLOMID® works.
The most common side effects of CLOMID® are enlarged ovaries, hot flashes and abdominal or pelvic pain/distension, discomfort and bloating, headache, nausea, and vomiting. Blurred vision and other visual symptoms may also occur during or after taking CLOMID®, which may be prolonged or potentially irreversible. Multiple pregnancies may occur. Prolonged use of CLOMID® may increase the risk of a borderline or invasive ovarian tumor. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome may occur and can progress rapidly and become a serious medical disorder. These are not all of the possible side effects of CLOMID®. For more information, ask your doctor.
