Experience

I was on Cilest for 10 years which was fine for me and then it got discontinued. The doctor put me on Rigivdon which was terrible as I got got really depressed and spotty so they switched me again to Lizinna. Within 3 months of being on Lizinna I developed a blood clot on my brain which the hospital stated was caused by the pill. This is the worst pain I have ever been through in my life and needless to say I have stopped it immediately. I wouldn’t recommend to anyone.
