Active salt - Clomiphene Citrate
CLOMID (clomiphene citrate tablets USP) is an orally administered, nonsteroidal, ovulatory stimulant designated chemically as 2-[p-(2-chloro-1,2-diphenylvinyl)phenoxy] triethylamine citrate (1:1). Clomiphene citrate is a white to pale yellow, essentially odorless, crystalline powder. It is freely soluble in methanol; soluble in ethanol; slightly soluble in acetone, water, and chloroform; and insoluble in ether. CLOMID is a mixture of two geometric isomers [cis (zuclomiphene) and trans (enclomiphene)] containing between 30% and 50% of the cis-isomer. Each white scored tablet contains 50 mg clomiphene citrate USP. The tablet also contains the following inactive ingredients: corn starch, lactose, magnesium stearate, pregelatinized cornstarch, and sucrose.
Clomid is an non-steroid anti-estrogen. Mechanism of its action consists in a specific binding with receptor for estrogen in ovary and hypophis. In patients with low estrogen levels in organism it causes estrogen effect and in ones with high estrogen levels it causes anti-estrogen effect. Its small doses increase secretion of gonadotropins (prolactin, Follicle stimulating hormone, FSH and interstitial cell-stimulating hormone), stimulates ovulation; in large doses slows secretion of gonadotropins. Clomid stimulates ovulation and prepares the body for pregnancy. This medication may be used for male patients with infertility caused by low production of sperm.
There are a few common clomid's present on the market, along with serophene, milophene and clomiphene citrate. Even though all of these common varieties of clomid had an "ab" score by the us meals and drug administration, which means they are identical to the manufacturer's version to identify, they're going to have some kind of inactive materials called clomid; this would potentially purpose questions for people with allergies or sensitivities. Clomiphene citrate is manufactured by par pharmaceuticals. Milophene is manufactured by milex products, inc., and serophene is made by serono, inc.

Clomid (clomiphene) is a non-steroidal fertility medicine. It causes the pituitary gland to release hormones needed to stimulate ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary). Clomid is used to cause ovulation in women with certain medical conditions (such as polycystic ovary syndrome) that prevent naturally occurring ovulation. Clomid may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
