How Does it Work

A small arrow pointing down

Clomiphene Citrate 25 mg Slow Release (MEM4) Oral Capsules are designed to gradually release the active ingredient, Clomiphene Citrate, over an extended period of time. This is achieved through the use of Methocel E4M, a type of controlled-release polymer. The polymer matrix of Methocel E4M swells when it comes into contact with gastric fluids, creating a gel-like barrier that controls the rate at which the drug is released into the body. This slow, steady release of medication ensures a sustained therapeutic effect, reducing the need for frequent dosing and improving patient compliance.

Clomiphene Citrate is a non-steroidal fertility medicine. It causes the pituitary gland to release hormones needed to stimulate ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary). Clomiphene Citrate is used to cause ovulation in women with certain medical conditions (such as polycystic ovary syndrome) that prevent naturally occurring ovulation. By releasing the medication slowly, the Clomiphene Citrate 25 mg Slow Release (MEM4) Oral Capsules ensure a consistent level of these hormones in the body, promoting regular ovulation and increasing the chances of conception.

It's important to note that while Clomiphene Citrate can help with ovulation, it does not guarantee pregnancy. It simply increases the chances of ovulation, which is a necessary step in the process of conception. Furthermore, it's crucial that patients take the medication as prescribed by their healthcare provider, as improper use can lead to side effects or reduced effectiveness. Patients should also keep in mind that while the slow-release formulation reduces the frequency of dosing, it does not eliminate the need for regular monitoring by a healthcare provider.
