Clomid

Clomid Linked to Serious Side Effects

Clomid, also known as clomiphene, is a non-steroidal fertility medicine that causes the pituitary gland to release the hormones needed to stimulate ovulation. Unfortunately, treatment with Clomid has been linked to severe adverse events, and the labeling for Clomid was revised by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2012 to address visual disorders.

FDA WARNINGS

  • The FDA states that patients should not use Clomid if they have ovarian cysts, abnormal vaginal bleeding, or abnormal liver function.
  • If a patient becomes pregnant while taking Clomid, they should be aware of the potential risks to the fetus, including premature birth.
  • Patients should be also advised of the visual symptoms that may occur while taking Clomid. Spotting, flashes, and light sensitivity may occur, and are usually reversible; however, cases of prolonged visual disturbance have been reported with some occurring after Clomid discontinuation.
