Experience

I was taken of cilest when it was discontinued and only found out when I collected my next lot of prescription and when I asked the pharmacist they said they’d picked what the prescription said when I called the doctor they said ‘I don’t know should be the same’ never thought much about it but since reading other people’s experiences I can now see some of the problems I have are probably not coincidence and possibly from this switch and I will be going to my doctor to see if they can enlighten me as I think I’d rather come off of it
