Sorry the way my mind works I can solve clues but I would struggle to make one up, so if you don’t mind I will pass it back to you
Have a look at this for an idea, Elizabeth: https://crypticcrosswordplanet.wordpres ... word-clue/

If you can't make one up, no harm in borrowing one from a newspaper, perhaps you could put The Times or Original in brackets after the clue to let us know if it's one of your own or borrowed?

I had to google that. A useful looking drug, but not the answer to a cryptic clue, Nifty.

Not that sort of period, rabbit.

Not tideover. The whole clue is a sort of straight clue to the answer, and the cryptic part is "difficult period".
