Experience

I was really pleased with it for most of the time I was using it. Seemingly no adverse effects on my body etc. However, I started to notice that I only really felt genuinely happy on my breaks and the rest of the time I just felt low/sad and couldn’t snap out of it. I stopped it two weeks ago and feel so much better. Like a different person. It could be just in my head but why risk it? Also noticed lower sex drive and reduced orgasms.

Experience after taking

Only stopped two weeks ago but so far feel so much better. More energy, more alert, happy rather than just default sadness for no reason.
