In brief: Sometimes

Clomid (clomiphene) or Clomiphene citrate is usually very well tolerated and safe.
Sometimes it causes mild hot flushes and headaches. These are not dangerous. Rarely people can have visual changes. If this occurs, please call your doctor right away. Usually your doctor will stop the medicine and find an alternative treatment. Clomid (clomiphene) can be an effective and safe treatment for some women with infertility.

In brief: Some

Clomid's most important side effect is the increased incidence of twin pregnancies.
However, others include poor lining development and decreed pregnancy rates, hot flashes, and visual disturbances that are transient.
