There are currently several generic Clomid products available on the market, including Serophene, Milophene, and clomiphene citrate. Although all of these generic forms of Clomid have been given an "AB" rating by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, meaning they are equivalent to the brand-name version, they may have different inactive ingredients than Clomid; this could potentially cause problems for people with allergies or sensitivities.
Clomid® (clomiphene citrate) is a prescription medication that has been licensed as an infertility treatment for women.
Clomid was first manufactured by sanofi-aventis. However, it has since come off patent and is available as a generic.
Generic Clomid is sold under the following names:
- Clomiphene citrate
Clomiphene citrate is made by Par Pharmaceutical. Milophene is made by Milex Products, Inc., and Serophene is made by Serono, Inc.
All generic medications must have certain tests to compare them to brand-name medications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) then looks at these tests to decide if the generics are equivalent to the brand-name medications and assigns each generic a rating. An "AB" rating means that the FDA has determined that a generic medication is equivalent to a brand-name medication. All of the generic Clomid versions that are currently available have an "AB" rating, meaning they should be equivalent to Clomid.
However, generic medications are allowed to have different inactive ingredients than the brand-name medication. This might include fillers, dyes, or other ingredients that may cause problems for people with allergies or sensitivities.
