Default femara?

I've been talking back and forth with my doctor and she has suggested that if we decide to ttc again that I switch to femara instead of clomid. I think this might be because I have such horrible side effects. Has anyone used this drug? What should I know about it? I know it's normally used for breast cancer but not too much more.

From what I have researched on Femara is says that it is similiar to Clomid in that it causes ovulation/superovulation but has fewer side effects and doesn't thin out the uterine lining as much as clomid does. So, based on that, it makes it more conducive for implantation. I don't know how pricey it is and I think the success rates (vs clomid) are comparable. If you don't mind me asking, what kinds of side effects did you have on clomid? This past month was my first cycle on 50 mg and for the following week I had horrible abdominal pain, cramping, bloating - it all seemed to resolve after I ovulated but it was pretty bad.

I remember taking Clomid and I didn't really have MANY side effects. I was dizzy for the most part, and I had blurred vision. I guess that would have been problems if I was doing a lot of driving. Thankfully I wasn't.
