Experience

I was on this pill for over a year, absolutely fine, the best thing ever and then BAM! My anxiety shot through the roof, it was like nothing ever experienced before I was a nervous wreck, constant headaches, aches and pains. I had multiple doctors appointments and it wasn’t until one doctor made a link between the pill and my moods. He told me to come off the pill and see if there was any change, with 2 weeks my anxiety was so much better and within about a month completely gone altogether. I have never been on the pill or any pill since after this.
