    Howdy, Livelaughmoe!

    Sorry to hear about your flu-like symptoms. This article on Clomid lists some side effects and may be helpful to you.

    Until someone who has tried it replies to you, you may also want to check with your doctor or pharmacist about your symptoms.

    Update us when you have a chance,

    I'm on clomid, too. This is currently my third round, and I'm up to 100mg a day. I think some of this may actually be the flu. There's a clomid community that you can join. There's a bunch of ladies in that community taking Clomid specifically.

    My symptoms have been sporadic nausea, hot flashes, some cramping. Most of the symptoms are similar to early pregnancy signs...which really can toy with your emotions. I would give your doctor a call about the symptoms you're experiencing. If they ARE from the Clomid, I don't think they're typical to most patients. This could mean a bad reaction. Better safe than sorry, right?
