    My biggest side effect is sleepiness! About 2 hours after I take the clomid I want to crawl into bed. Other than that, I haven't had any of the other 'normal' side effects.

    I think there is a drug similar to clomid (it begins with an s). Maybe your RE could prescribe that instead?

    Good luck!

    I call clomid the HELL drug. I too had horriable side affects from it. I was so scared to start injections, but it is wonderful compared to clomid. I have used repronex and gonal and the only thing i can really complain of is when I take the gonal i find my self real fatigue. I hope this helps.

    My RE suggested I try Femera this cycle or the next due to the fact that Clomid is thinning my uterine lining. I don't know anything about it. Have you started taking it yet? I am trying to find out about side effects as well. I guess I will try to find some info about it on another site.
