Experience

I know of many people taking this pill that are absolutely fine however, I’ve found that I’ve been greatly affected by emotional side effects (depression, mood swings) and slight weight gain. I took this pill daily without breaks as my doctor advised for 6 months. I believe the pill emphasised my previous mindset so I’d take your current mental state into account before starting this pill.
