What are side effects of Clomid?

Clomid was first discovered in 1956 and patented in 1959. The drug was approved for use in 1967. Clomid was one of the first assisted reproductive therapies available on the market. The World Health Organization placed Clomid on its list of essential medicines. However, the medication is not without its side effects, which may include:

  • Ovarian enlargement
  • Mood swings
  • Hot flashes
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Nausea

There are several serious clomiphene side effects. The side effects of Clomid can leave patients with a significantly lower quality of life and severe injuries.

Clomid Reactions Can Cause Potentially Irreversible Visual Disturbances

Clomid side effects can cause blurring or visual symptoms during treatment and may increase in incidence with increasing total dose and duration. Although some visual disturbances resolve and can be reversed, some symptoms continued even after Clomid was discontinued. In addition, some visual symptoms may be irreversible due to the risks of Clomid.

Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome Linked To Clomid Use

Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) has been reported in patients as an effect of receiving Clomid therapy. OHSS can progress rapidly and has the potential to become a serious medical emergency and lead to severe illness or death.

OHSS usually occurs within 10 days of starting a fertility medication. It is characterized by mild to moderate abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and tenderness in the area of the ovaries. In addition, a sudden weight increase of more than 6.6 pounds may occur.

Clomid symptoms indicating a severe case of OHSS include:

  • Rapid weight gain (more than 33 pounds in five to 10 days)
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Persistent nausea and vomiting
  • Blood clots in legs
  • Decreased urination
  • Shortness of breath
  • Enlarged or tight abdomen

Complications from OHSS may lead to life-threatening conditions, including kidney failure, blood clots, breathing problems, serious bleeding, pregnancy loss, and death.

Your Questions Answered

We have straight answers to difficult questions to help you make critical decisions, navigate legal process and help you get justice.

A tort is a civil wrongful act committed by a person or company that results in harm to another person. A mass tort is when multiple victims are injured by the same single tort.
A court will consider if a mass tort lawsuit is permissible by determining:
  • whether a large number of plaintiffs are involved
  • whether the plaintiffs are located near or far from each other;
  • whether the injuries sustained are similar among the plaintiffs;
  • whether the claims arose from the same cause (defective toy, car part, oil spill, etc.)
  • Defective products, such as car parts, toys, or other consumer goods.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs, such as those that are later linked to severe or fatal health consequences
  • Environmental hazards, such as polluted water sources contaminated by nearby industrial sites or an oil leak.
Thousands of lawsuits across the country may be filed with a mass tort. These lawsuits are filed in numerous federal district courts. In a mass tort, federal judges will consolidate the thousands of lawsuits into a single proceeding. One judge in a single federal district court will oversee litigation, allowing for consistent rulings and a more expeditious process for the plaintiffs.
In a mass tort, each plaintiff (injured person) has an individual claim resulting from their unique damages. In a class action, many plaintiffs are considered collectively. Similarly, in a mass tort, each individual's claim "value" is unique to the severity of their injuries. In a class action, plaintiffs generally suffer injuries of similar severity, resulting in the same amount of compensation value.
If you have been injured or suffered illness due to a recalled drug, having an expert witnesses can be essential to proving your claim. Thomas J. Henry has spent decades building professional relationships with leading experts including:

  • Toxicologists
  • Regulatory Compliance Consultants
  • Forensic toxicologists
