How to take clomid

Just wondering if those of you who have taken clomid can give me some tips.  Is there a special time of day to take it?  do you take it with food or water, etc.  Thank you, and best wishes to all!

I took mine in the morning after I had breakfast.  I was on 50mg days 3-7.  The only side effects I had were hot flashes at nite and BAD cramping when I was Oing.

I was told to take it right before bedtime. I get mild hot flashes but that's the only side effect so far. I've taken it for the last two cycles now.

Good luck ttc!

The only side effects I had were being EXTREMELY emotional and I had lots of PMS-like symptoms.  But I don't think those had anything to do with when I took it.

I took clomid on 2 different occasions and I found it best to take it right before bed.  I still experienced symptoms after the course was finished - hot flashes and when I was ovulating it was painful but atleast I knew when since I dont have access to buy OPT.  Thanks to clomid I am 6 weeks pregnant!!!  Good luck to all.

I took mine at night because I got those funky visual symptoms that you read about. Not fun to feel like you are hallucinating chasing a toddler around all day. LOL

Hello there everyone, My boyfriend and I have been trying to conceive for a long time, so my Dr. decided to put me on Clomid. I just want to know, what is the percentage of people that have gotten pregnant from the help of this medication, and what steps do I have to take after the 5th day of using the medication???
