Experience

I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks which have been 10000x worse since I began taking this pill. I’ve had discolouration of my skin and I’m only taking it now until I can get a coil fitted. I’ve had minimal physical side effects but mentally I’ve been a disaster. Avoid this pill at all costs
