FERTAB TABLETS(CLOMIPHENE CITRATE)
Each tablet contains:
Clomiphene Citrate … 50mg
Fertab is indicated for the treatment of infertility due to impaired hypothalamic pituitary function. Fertab (Clomiphene Citrate) stimulates the secretion of pituitary gonadotropic hormones probably by blocking the effect of estrogens at receptor sites in the hypothalamus and pituitary. Clomiphene citrate is indicated for the treatment of an ovulatory infertility in patients desiring pregnancy. Therapy with Clomiphene Citrate will not be successful unless the woman, though an ovulatory, is capable of ovulation and the partner is fertile. It is effective in primary pituitary or primary ovarian failure. Administration of Fertab is indicated only in patients with demonstrated ovulatory dysfunction and in whom the following conditions apply:
- Normal liver function.
- Physiological indications of normal endogenous estrogen (as estimated from vaginal smears, endometrial biopsy, assay of urine or from bleeding in response to progesterone). Reduced estrogen levels while less favorable, do not prevent successful therapy.
- Clomiphene Citrate therapy is not effective for those patients with primary pituitary or ovarian failure. It cannot substitute for appropriate therapy of other disturbances leading to ovulatory dysfunction, e.g. diseases of the thyroid or adrenals.
- A careful evaluation prior to Clomiphene citrate therapy should be done in patients with abnormal uterine bleeding. It is most important that neoplastic lesions are detected.
