Experience

I experienced quite bad depression and anxiety as a result of using the pill. It took me quite a while to realise that the pill was the cause of it as I didn’t know this was a side effect. I went to the doctors and tried a lower dose but it didn’t help so I decided to stop taking it. A week or so after I stopped my mood drastically increased. I feel this needs to be more widely known.

Experience after taking

Once I stopped using the pill my mood drastically improved, my general motivation was back and so was my sex drive.
