Experience

Horrific. Was on Cilest for about 10 years until they discontinued it and swapped to Lizinna. I took it for one month and I bled every single day. I cried every day and became utterly depressed. I was so overwhelmed by life, everything became so difficult to understand, even things I'd done for years. Nearly quit my job because I could no longer understand what to do. I kept thinking being dead would be better because I felt worthless. Felt extremely anxious and panicked about doing normal activities. Really tired when I woke up in the morning. One day I wondered if the pill might be making me depressed so I stopped taking it and within 2 days I was feeling normal again, I haven't cried since and I love my life again! Doctor said it's the worst side effect he's ever seen for a pill and that it is an unbranded version so has exactly the same hormones as Cilest but mixed with other chemicals to make the pill shape, so it's not pure. Almost ruined my life.
