Experience

This pill made me Absolute Insane! The doctor didn’t ask if I had a history of depression (note, the label says you need to take this under strict medical supervision if you do) and it triggered one of the darkest periods of depression I’ve ever had. It was incredibly irresponsible to prescribe this to me. Stopped taking it and felt better within DAYS.
