Experience

Went on this pill to control my migraines, took about a year for them to completely go, sex drive was non existent and felt very emotional and not worthy the live, however this pill is now discontinued where I live so I’ve had to resort to another. My sex drive is coming back and I feel much more positive.

Experience after taking

Due to switching to another similar doseage pill I now have increased headaches and migraines, gained weight, however feel much more positive in terms of my mental health compared to the past couple of years and sex drive is slowly returning
