Experience

I was on rigevidon for 3 months to try and improve my skin. It made it so much worse and the first week of every month i was throwing up and feeling very ill. I felt sad more times than i have before and found myself crying at the tiniest things. My mood swings were unbelievable and affected my family so much so they asked me to come off it.
