Take the prescription to your pharmacy. Some medical plans will cover Clomid and some will not. Some plans also may require you to pay a co-pay for the medication.
Purchase the medication. Clomid is a small, white tablet that most doctors recommend taking at night. Most doctors will start you out with a 25 to 50 mg pill.
