Experience

Physical side effects were at times annoying (eg. spotting between periods) but manageable. Emotional side effects were so bad I had to stop taking it after two months. Maybe i should have given it more time so my body would get used to it, but at the time it felt to me much more important to stop taking it and feel more like myself again than to try to get through a few hard months for the slim chance of any mood becoming stable again.
