I took clomid days 3 to 7 over 35 days ago I am having extreme dizziness, nausea, visible blue veins all over my body, enlarged breasts, and horrible night sweats.
Clinical Trial Adverse Events. CLOMID, at recommended dosages, is generally well tolerated. Adverse reactions usually have been mild and transient and most have disappeared promptly after treatment has been discontinued. Adverse experiences reported in patients treated with clomiphene citrate during clinical studies are shown in Table 2.
Table 2. Incidence of Adverse Events in Clinical Studies (Events Greater than 1%) (n = 8029*)
Ovarian Enlargement 13.6%
Vasomotor Flushes 10.4%
Abdominal-Pelvic Discomfort/Distention/Bloating 5.5%
Nausea and Vomiting 2.2%
Breast Discomfort 2.1%
Visual Symptoms 1.5%
Blurred vision, lights, floaters, waves, unspecified visual complaints,
photophobia, diplopia, scotomata, phosphenes
Abnormal Uterine Bleeding 1.3%
Intermenstrual spotting, menorrhagia
The following adverse events have been reported in fewer than 1% of patients in clinical trials: Acute abdomen, appetite increase, constipation, dermatitis or rash, depression, diarrhea, dizziness, fatigue, hair loss/dry hair, increased urinary frequency/volume, insomnia, light-headedness, nervous tension, vaginal dryness, vertigo, weight gain/loss. Patients on prolonged CLOMID therapy may show elevated serum levels of desmosterol. This is most likely due to a direct interference with cholesterol synthesis. However, the serum sterols in patients receiving the recommended dose of CLOMID are not significantly altered. Ovarian cancer has been infrequently reported in patients who have received fertility drugs. Infertility is a primary risk factor for ovarian cancer; however, epidemiology data suggest that prolonged use of clomiphene may increase the risk of a borderline or invasive ovarian tumor.
Perhaps its due to some reactions, talk to your doc/pharmacist, he or she might provide some relief or change the medication, hope this helps?
