Experience

I was on Cilest which were fine but I got given Lizinna after discontinuation and immediately felt an extreme change in my mood: very angry, depressed and suicidal. Loss of sex drive. Wanting to eat a lot, thus gaining a lot of weight. A few pimples but nothing crazy. Bleeding between periods, constant. Just been terrible for me
