Experience

The majority of side effects (nausea, headaches) passed after the first few months but levest continuously has made me feel low, tired and sometimes depressed. After a quick bit of research I found that this is one of the cheapest forms of the combined pill, which explains why I was prescribed this first – but I’m hoping to switch to a pill that won’t make me feel so miserable. One of the upsides, however, is that levest completely cleared up my skin whereas before I used to have somewhat bad acne.
