Experience

i was prescribed this at 15 as my acne was just awful, although this was the first thing prescribed, not antibiotics etc, which makes me think it wasnt thought through too well. since ive been on it for a while its difficult to notice if my bad moods and depressive states are just me or the pill, but im going to stop taking it to see if my mental health increases. my acne has improved. im still a bit spotty and it definitely did not take just a couple months to clear up, it took about 10-11 months to make a visible difference. before taking this tablet just keep a note of your depressive episodes and bad mood so you can compare it after you start the pill, because its really difficult to decipher otherwise…
