I had very few problems on this pill, although I was on it so long it’s hard to tell. Since coming off it though, everything has changed.

Experience after taking

I’ve only been off it for 3 weeks and have felt horrendous so far. I’ve had the following symptoms: – constant headaches – migraines – dizziness – constipation – confusion / struggle to concentrate – sensitivity to light – extreme thirst (I’d had a few headaches on the pill but not usually experienced any of these other symptoms before)

Had a similar experience?
