Has anyone experienced depression and mood swings while taking clomid. The past few days have been rough....crying for no reason, no motivation, just want to be alone in my room. Thats soooo not like me. I Yesterday was my last day taking it and i hope i start feeling better soon.

This could just be the depression talking but i think after this cycle if i don't get pregnant i will be taking a break. I can't handle all this anymore

girl... clomid made me cray-cray!!!! Don't beat yourself up! Our bodies can only take so much hormone! And when we're pumping them with more hormone just so they'll act right they don't appreciate it. Hope you feel better, Kim!

I hope it gets better! I have never taken it before so I have no insight to offer. I just hope you move past this quickly. Big

It can mess with you. I know LOTS of women who think it's the devil! Praying it does the trick and you don't have to take it any more!!!!

Hugs ! I hope you feel better soon. Hormones can Definitely make you feel all over the place, never fun to be on the emotional roller coaster. I was taking 3x1300 MSG of EPO (only up until ovulation and I felt like it helped smooth out my emotions. I used NOW Super Prjmrose, got it on amazon. Now I haven't been in clomid but I was taking the soy isoflavones and honestly I have cycles where the moodiness/weepy/depression fluctuates. Some cycles are really bad and others are fairly smooth. Hormones suck !! Hope it passes quickly for you :hugs:

The Clomid Crazies are no joke...my husband started trying to plan business trips around my Clomid days so he didn't have to deal with me

Femara might be worth asking your doc about...most women have far fewer side effects with it compared to Clomid.

Glad you are starting to feel better. Being a B**** is the worst! (Unless the men deserve it of course )
