Clomid is the trade name of the active substance — Clomiphene citrate, which was developed by an international pharmaceutical company — Sanofi-Aventis. Sanofi-Aventis company is the sole owner of the trade name of Clomid, but not the only manufacturer of non-steroidal stimulant of ovulation — Clomiphene citrate.
Duration of protection of a patent for the invention of molecular formula Clomiphene citrate has already expired, and today this drug for the treatment of female infertility is produced by numerous pharmaceutical companies in the world.
Given the fact that the holder of the trade name of Clomid is Sanofi-Aventis pharmaceutical company, the pharmacological analogs of this drug for the treatment of ovulatory infertility are sold under different generic names.
Clomiphene citrate tablets in the U.S.
Manufacturers and suppliers of Clomiphene citrate tablets in the U.S. are three pharmaceutical companies:

So under the conditions of natural competition, the price of pills of Clomid, Clomiphene, and Serophene can be different in different pharmacies.
Competition between the manufacturers of the drug Clomid and pharmacological analogs (generics) of Clomid is observed not only in the U.S. but also in other countries.
