Patients should inform their prescriber or health care professional about all other medicines they are taking, including non-prescription medicines, nutritional supplements, or herbal products. Also patients should inform their prescriber or health care professional if they are a frequent user of drinks with caffeine or alcohol, if they smoke, or if they use illegal drugs. These may affect the way Clomid medicine works. Check with your health care professional before stopping or starting any of your medicines.
It should be borne in mind that in comparison with many other potent medicines, taking Clomid is quite comfortable. Clomid food and drug interactions are few and, as a rule, do not cause serious consequences. The most important thing during the treatment is its possible interactions with natural hormones and certain hormonal therapy medications. Also, doctors recommend stop taking nutritional and herbal supplements at least for a while. Such substances are often not clinically tested, so their interaction with Clomid may increase the risk of unpleasant side effects. Foods have almost no effect on the effectiveness of Clomid. Just try not to abuse alcohol (however, almost all athletes and women who want to get pregnant avoid alcohol) and drink too much coffee (this may increase some side effects).
