Formula Information

A small arrow pointing down

Clomiphene Citrate 50 mg Slow Release (MEM4) Oral Capsules are a specially formulated medication designed to provide a controlled and prolonged release of the active ingredient, Clomiphene Citrate. This formulation utilizes Methocel E4M, a type of controlled-release polymer, to encapsulate the medication. This innovative technology allows for the gradual release of the medication over an extended period of time, providing sustained therapeutic effects.

Clomiphene Citrate is a medication primarily used to treat infertility in women who do not ovulate, including those with polycystic ovary syndrome. It works by stimulating an increase in the amount of hormones that support the growth and release of a mature egg (ovulation). This slow-release formulation of Clomiphene Citrate is designed to maintain a steady level of the medication in the body, which can enhance its effectiveness and potentially improve treatment outcomes.

One of the key benefits of this slow-release formulation is the reduced dosing frequency. This can significantly improve patient compliance, as it is often easier for patients to adhere to a medication regimen that requires fewer daily doses. Furthermore, the sustained release of the medication can help to minimize potential side effects, as it avoids the peaks and troughs in blood concentration that can occur with immediate-release formulations.

Prescribers should note that while Clomiphene Citrate is a powerful medication for treating certain types of infertility, it is not suitable for all patients. It should not be used by women who are already pregnant, or those with liver disease, abnormal vaginal bleeding, an uncontrolled adrenal gland or thyroid disorder, or an ovarian cyst unrelated to polycystic ovary syndrome. As with all medications, it is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits with the patient before initiating treatment.

How Does it Work

A small arrow pointing down

Clomiphene Citrate 50 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 50 mg Slow Release (MEM4) Oral Capsules ensure a consistent level of these hormones in the body, promoting regular ovulation and increasing the chances of pregnancy.

It's important to note that while Clomiphene Citrate can help induce ovulation, it does not guarantee pregnancy. It simply increases the chances of ovulation, which is a necessary step in the process of conception. Furthermore, the use of Clomiphene Citrate should be under the supervision of a healthcare provider, as it can have side effects and may not be suitable for all patients. For example, it should not be used by women who have liver disease, abnormal vaginal bleeding, an uncontrolled adrenal gland or thyroid disorder, an ovarian cyst (unrelated to polycystic ovary syndrome), or if you are pregnant.

If you have any questions about Clomiphene Citrate 50 mg Slow Release (MEM4) Oral Capsules, or if you would like more information about how this medication works or its suitability for your specific circumstances, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at Bayview Pharmacy.

Other Uses

A small arrow pointing down

Clomiphene Citrate is primarily used as a treatment for certain types of infertility in women who are not going through menopause, particularly those who are unable to ovulate (ovulatory dysfunction). By stimulating the release of certain hormones necessary for ovulation, Clomiphene Citrate aids in successful conception. However, our formulation of Clomiphene Citrate 50 mg Slow Release (MEM4) Oral Capsules presents additional applications that extend beyond infertility treatment.

Studies have suggested that Clomiphene Citrate may be beneficial in increasing testosterone levels in men affected by hypogonadism or low testosterone levels, which can lead to symptoms such as reduced sex drive, low energy, and mood changes. Our slow-release formulation could provide a more stable and prolonged hormone yield, potentially improving symptom control and patient quality of life. This off-label application of Clomiphene Citrate should be considered and discussed with healthcare providers before initiating the treatment.

In addition, there is some evidence to suggest that Clomiphene Citrate could have potential uses in managing polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. PCOS can lead to prolonged or infrequent menstrual periods and excess androgen levels, and often results in extended periods without ovulation. In this regard, Clomiphene Citrate might aid in restoring regular ovulation in these patients.

It's important to note that every patient's medical condition is unique, and this medication should only be used as prescribed by a qualified healthcare provider. Please ensure that the potential benefits and risks are thoroughly discussed before deciding to use this medication for applications outside of its conventional use. Also, patients should inform their healthcare provider of all current and past health conditions, and should discuss possible interactions with other medications, food, or lifestyle factors. Moreover, patients should diligently observe any potential side effects or changes in symptoms, and communicate these to their healthcare provider promptly.

If you have any queries or need further clarification regarding these potential alternative uses of Clomiphene Citrate 50 mg Slow Release (MEM4) Oral Capsules, or about any other aspect related to this medication, please do not hesitate to contact us at Bayview Pharmacy. Our team of expert compounding pharmacists are here to provide comprehensive information and advice to both patients and prescribers to ensure effective, safe, and customizable healthcare solutions.
