Theres a substantial percentage that have these kinds of side-effects. Odds are you wont get these sides, but you wont know till you try.
I've used for PCT, on cruise, and stand alone with the same sides.

also would lowering the dose get ride of some of the sides my doc has me on a pretty high does of 100mgs per day im thinking of cutting it to 50 but not sure.
09-26-2009, 11:38 PM
also ive heard of people getting moody and emotional problems but not really heard anyone ever talk about fatigue. i dont even wanna move off the couch since i started taking clomid does anyone have an idea if this could be normal
09-27-2009, 12:54 PM
Never had any fatigue, could be due to depression.
Lowering the dose should lessen the sides, but they wont dissapear most likely.
You could ask your Dr about Nolvadex. It's just as effective, and more potent than Clomid with less sides. Most Docs arent open to Nolva therapy, but you could get lucky.
Another option is Proviron. Doc wont prescribe so you have to get it by other means. Should raise your energy levels back up and will definately increase your libido.
If it were me, I'd run Clomid/Proviron @25-50mgs/ and 25-75mgs SID.
The reason you feel crappy is not due to lack of estrogen. Clomid IS an estrogen. It just blocks the receptors in the breasts. At 100mgs, you are FULL OF ESTROGEN by now.

Did the Dr test your thyroid before giving you clomid? If your thyroid is low, clomid wont help, but getting your thyroid levels in range would be the place to start. All clomid is doing is raise your LH levels, but with low thyroid, your testes dont respond to LH like they should.
I cant recommend Proviron enough at this point. Do you suffer from DHT problems like baldness or prostate issues? This would be the only reason not to use it, or unless you DONT wanna feel like your 21 again...

Thyroid hormone deficiency affects all tissues of the body, including multiple endocrine changes that alter growth hormone, corticotrophin, glucocorticoids, and gonadal function. Primary hypothyroidism is associated with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, which is reversible with thyroid hormone replacement therapy. In male children follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is elevated and associated with testicular enlargement without virilization. Men with primary hypothyroidism have subnormal responses of luteinizing hormone (LH) to gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) administration and normal response to human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Free testosterone concentrations are reduced in men with primary hypothyroidism and thyroid hormone replacement normalizes free testosterone concentrations. In men with primary hypothyroidism, prolactin is not consistently elevated (except in men and children with longstanding severe primary hypothyroidism), but prolactin declines following thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Thyroid hormone is known to affect sex hormone-binding hormonal globulin (SHBG) concentrations. Men with hyperthyroidism have elevated concentrations of testosterone and SHBG. Thyroid hormone therapy in normal men may also duplicate this elevation. In addition estradiol elevations are observed in men with hyperthyroidism, and gynecomastia is common in them as well. In contrast to patients with primary hypothyroidism, men with hyperthyroidism exhibit hyperresponsiveness of LH to GnRH administration and subnormal responses to hCG. Radioactive iodine therapy (RAI) of men treated for thyroid cancer produces a dose-dependent impairment of spermatogenesis and elevation of FSH up to approximately 2 years. Permanent testicular germ cell damage may occur in men treated with high doses of RAI. RAI commonly increases serum concentrations of FSH and LH while reducing inhibin B levels without affecting serum concentrations of testosterone. Thus, radioiodine therapy transiently impairs both germinal and Leydig cell function that usually recover by 18 months posttherapy

I have used clomid off and on for years and only noticed it made me edgy sometimes. Other than that everything works perfect and always returned me to normal @ 50mgs/day for a month, then stop cold!!

i'm in the same situation as you, IDK if you've seen my thread. I have low test, my TSH is lower than yours and my T4 is higher, but my T3 is low too. The biggest different we have is that my LH and FSH or normal while my prolactin is high...ugh, I dont even know what to do
also at what level is someone considered to have hypothyroidism?
10-27-2009, 03:21 AM
if anyone in the world would have side effects to anything, it would be me 100% of the time.
I took clomid 25mg/day for 10 weeks. I was EXTREMELY worried about sides as I already felt terrible and nolvadex made me nearly suicidal lol.
I felt really good....I slept like a rock, increased sex drive, joints felt better, I felt larger (possibly from the zuclomid estrogenic activity), ocassional mood swings.
It took my T from 300's to 575....sadly not enough considering my high SHBG, but remarkably effective.
Give it a try...you'll notice effects by the first week.

Get your DHT up and aggression will return.
Here's a little about PV:
1 tablet contains mesterolone (17beta-hydroxy-1alpha-methyl-5alpha-androstan-3-one) 25 mg and the preservatives methylparaben (0,02%) and propylparaben (0,01%).
A. 21.7 Male sex hormones.
Proviron balances a deficiency of androgen formation which begins to fall gradually with increasing age. Therefore, Proviron is suitable for treatment of all conditions caused by deficient endogenous androgen formation. In the recommended therapeutic dosage, Proviron will not impair spermatogenesis. Proviron is especially well tolerated by the liver.
• Declining physical activity and mental alertness in middle- and old-aged men
Reduced efficiency, easy fatigability, lack of concentration, weak memory, disturbances of libido and potency, irritability, disturbances of sleep, depressive moods, and general vegetative complaints are often attributed to androgen-deficiency. These complaints can be overcome or improved by the use of Proviron tablets.
• Potency disturbances
Proviron overcomes potency disturbances due to androgen-deficiency. It may also be of use as supplementary therapy in cases of diminished potency where androgen-deficiency is not the primary cause.
Growth, development and function of androgen-dependent target organs are stimulated by Proviron. It promotes development of secondary male sex characteristics in cases of prepuberal hypogonadism. Full clinical and laboratory investigations are necessary in all cases of young patients prior to commencement of treatment. Proviron tablets may also be used as a substitution therapy in cases where a loss of gonadal function has occurred post-puberally.
Oligozoospermia and deficient Leydig-cell secretion may be the cause of infertility. With Proviron treatment, sperm count can be increased, the quality improved and, furthermore, a higher fructose concentration up to normal values can be achieved thus increasing the chances of procreation.
In patients with carcinoma of the prostate, androgen therapy of any kind, including the use of Proviron, is contra-indicated.
