Good luck!

Just out of interest, what's the drug they've given you now?

I've also moved on from Clomid to letrozole (Femara). This is my first cycle on it.

So far, so good! I'm on my fourth dose of it and haven't noticed any side effects so far. Normally on Clomid I would have headaches/bad hot flashes/dizziness/mood swings by now.

I'm taking 5 mg CD 3-7. My RE said he usually starts out at 2.5 mg, but since I had gone up to 150 mg of Clomid he started me on the middle of the road dose. He said he will take it up to 7.5 mg if necessary.

I have heard GREAT things about letrozole compared to Clomid and my RE said he actually prefers it. The side effects are typically not as bad, he said he sees better success with it than Clomid, and it doesn't stay in your body as long as Clomid does, so that's a great thing too.

Good luck with it! We'll have to keep each other updated. There are lots of Clomid threads but very few letrozole ones.

I'm not sure that it's necessarily stronger than Clomid, but my RE told me that he has better success with it. A lot of women who didn't respond well to Clomid do respond to letrozole. From what I understand they do work similarly.
