Experience

Unfortunately this pill gave me acute hepatitis, after 2 days I started it I was very itchy and tired. Had to rush to the emergency one night because I was feeling very poorly. I was on acute hepatitis, and it was drug induced. Doctors said it was this pill. Have been taking Levest before this for a year and never gave me any major issues apart from bad nausea and mood changes.
